Euler Posted September 30, 2022 at 01:15 AM Share Posted September 30, 2022 at 01:15 AM The case is Camacho v The Uvalde Consolidated Independent School District filed in the Federal District Court of Western Texas. CNN CNN said: Parents of survivors of the Robb Elementary School massacre in Uvalde, Texas, have filed a federal lawsuit against multiple entities -- including the gun manufacturer, school district and city -- for a host of allegations, including negligence and recklessness. ... Lawyers for the families say the manufacturer for the gunman's weapon employs aggressive marketing tactics that recklessly endanger children. "Daniel Defense chooses not to do any studies evaluating the effects of their marketing strategies on the health and well-being of Americans and chose not to look at the cost to families and communities like Uvalde, Texas," said the complaint. Days before the shooting, the complaint notes, the Georgia-based company tweeted an image of a toddler holding an assault-style weapon with the caption: "Train up a child in the way he should go, and when he is old, he will not depart from it." The claim also says Firequest International, Inc., which manufactures accessory trigger systems, similar to illegal bump stocks, sells its products to untrained civilians, young adults and minors in Uvalde. These types of devices allow semi-automatic rifles to fire more rapidly, similar to automatic weapons. Oasis Outback, LLC, sold the gunman weapons and ammunition allegedly knowing he was a risk, the suit claims. "The Uvalde school shooter's background check was clean, and Oasis Outback sold him the guns and ammunition knowing he was suspicious and likely dangerous," according to the legal document. "The store owner and his staff did not act on their suspicions and block the purchases or notify law enforcement." ... The claim also says the city's police department failed to protect the victims by not following state mandated active shooter training. The suit also faults Lt. Mariano Pargas, the city's acting police chief on the day of the massacre, as well as two other companies, claiming defects in their products were factors in the response to the shooting. Motorola Solutions, Inc.'s radio communications devices, which were used by some first responders, "were defective and unreasonably dangerous because they did not contain adequate warnings or instructions concerning failure during normal use," said the claim. Lawyers also say Schneider Electric, the manufacturer of the door locking mechanisms used at the school, "failed to lock as designed after being shut." ...
