The family of 53-year-old Andre Mackneil, who was gunned down in a Buffalo, New York, supermarket after purchasing his 3-year-old son’s birthday cake, may go after a major gun manufacturer.

Mackneil’s daughters, Leandra Elliott and Deja Brown, have many questions regarding the suspect.

“We’re so confused. It’s like how did he get this weapon?” Brown told CBS News.

The sisters said they also blame the gun manufacturer. They have retained Buffalo attorneys John Elmore and Kristen Elmore-Garcia, who are investigating potential claims against Remington which, until 2020, produced the Bushmaster rifle allegedly used in the massacre.

“I reached out to the lawyer in Connecticut, Josh Koskoff, who had the only successful lawsuit against a gun manufacturer of an AR-15. He said that he would be willing to help,” Elmore told CBS News.

Elmore said they could go after Remington, if its Bushmaster was used, because “it is designed for the military, it is designed for war.”

We knew it was bound to happen. Somebody smells another big pay off and some people believe nothing says “I wanna memorialize my Daddy’s memory” better than a lawsuit raking millions up so they can get some “well deserved” rich people shit.

  1. Except that Remington didn’t concede: their insurance companies did. Big difference.

    An example of conceding would be S&W putting in those stupid frame locks.

    1. Oh yes, I remember the huge Remington Media Blitz saying that…wait.. never happened.
      We have discussed it here any times: Perception and optics are important. They did not separate themselves from the payoff and they are getting reamed again.
      Silence gives consent.

      1. IANAL but is there any Remington left to sue? What we call Remington today that is trying to restart the gun manufacture is not the same company and I believe only bought assets so I don’t think they accrue any liability from guns made by Freedom, nor does Ruger or Federal who also bought part of the assets. It will be interesting to see how this plays out. As soon as I saw that it was a Bushmaster, I expected this to happen.

    2. I work in insurance litigation. The aerospace companies and their insurance companies fight every lawsuit to the death and never settle, regardless of the cost. They do not want to open the door to this shit. It doesn’t matter that the insurance companies made the decision, the media reported Remington and that’s all that mattered.

  2. Sad aint it. As we have said before, this opens up the slippery slope to sue ANYONE. Ya old guys remember the Ford Pinto?( hint, screech, kaboom!) people wanted to sue them and it was ruled you couldnt… now? Shaekespear was right- first we kill the lawyers….

  3. Glossing over something here.
    The Brandon administration absolutely wants to overturn the PLCAA. In fact, I would not be surprised if someone directly linked to the WH is pushing this. Expect a friendly judge/court to move this along to an actual trial if necessary.
    They can achieve the gun free paradise they are looking for if they can force the manufacturers and sellers to take responsibility for what the user does with the product.

  4. This is why some industries should avoid insurance (more precisely, product liability insurance). For example, parachute makers have learned this lesson; one of them has “Uninsured” in its official corporate name.

      1. Yes, formerly the Uninsured Relative Workshop. I know they have been in business for decades, perhaps as long as 40 years. As far as I’ve heard their shark repellent has been effective. Note that they are probably the #1, certainly one of the top, manufacturers of sports parachute equipment.

Only one rule: Don't be a dick.
