Monday in Bridgeport, Connecticut, the firearm manufacturer Remington asked a state superior court judge to stop a lawsuit against them by victims of the Sandy Hook school shooting in Newtown.
The lawsuit against the manufacturer, the distributor, and the seller says that the military-style rifle used should never have been sold or marketed to civilians in the first place.
But gun manufacturers are protected from most liability under a 2005 federal law. So what are the implications of this Connecticut case?
Also, we look at national news and the U.S. Senate's vote on four gun control measures later today. The action follows a filibuster last week by Senate Democrats who demanded votes on the issue, following the shooting massacre at the Pulse Nightclub in Orlando, Florida.
Among those pushing for stronger gun control laws is Massachusetts Sen. Ed Markey, who supports a measure that would prevent anyone on a federal terrorist watch list from buying a gun.
