HARTFORD, Conn. (AP) The Latest on a Connecticut court reinstating part of a wrongful death lawsuit filed by victims of the Newtown school shooting against gun maker Remington (all times local):

1:40 p.m.

The mother of one of the 20 children killed in the Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting says a new court ruling is a step toward holding gun-maker Remington accountable for the way it marketed the rifle used in the massacre.

If this is at all successful, gun makers might actually realize they have to get on board with more gun regulations regarding access. Even if just for legal reasons so they don't get sued like this again. Of course now that Trump is rapidly filling seats with his stooges, and the SCOTUS is stacked, I'm not sure it will win.
