Uvalde shooting victims’ families sue companies allegedly tied to mass shooting

by ian

The Uvalde victims’ families are now suing Meta, the videogame company Activision, and the gun manufacturing company, all of whom the plaintiffs allege contributed to the infamous mass shooting in the Texas city.

Prosecuting attorney Josh Koskoff says there is a direct correlation between the mass shooter’s actions at Robb Elementary School and the resources that the man used. These included, Koskoff said, Activision’s Call of Duty video, Instagram, and the gun manufacturer Daniel Defense.

Koskoff says that “this three-headed monster knowingly exposed him to the weapon, conditioned him to see it as a tool to solve his problems and trained him to use it.”

None of the companies had responded to the lawsuit as of this reporting.

The families of the victims have already received a $2 million settlement from the city for law enforcement’s slow response on the day of the tragedy.
