Oh my gosh. I cannot help wondering just what is getting into some judges.
Superior Court Judge Barbara Bellis declined to dismiss it, saying the gunmaker, a unit of Madison, North Carolina-based Freedom Group Inc, had not proven that the Protection of Lawful Commerce in Arms Act stopped her from hearing the case.
“The Superior Court has subject matter jurisdiction over a wrongful death action where the injury arose out of conduct by the defendants,” Bellis wrote. “Any immunity that PLCAA may provide does not implicate this court’s subject matter jurisdiction.”
Lawsuit can proceed versus maker of gun used in Conn. school shooting

I won’t attempt to make any predictions on this but if the case goes to a full court room brawl and the judge rules against the defendant I would anticipate a long drawn out hearing in an appeals court.
I really do wonder just how the defendant is responsible for the actions of someone who killed his mother and smashed his way in a locked firearms storage cabinet. Also remember that the young man did not purchase the firearm in the first place, his mother did.
