Uvalde father seeks answers on gun maker’s marketing

Marketing

A lawyer at the center of a landmark settlement against Remington, the manufacturer of the gun used in the 2012 Sandy Hook school shooting, has turned his attention to the manufacturer of the gun used in the Uvalde school shooting.

The lawyer, on behalf of the father of a 10-year-old killed in Uvalde, Texas last week, issued a letter to the maker of the AR-15 used in the mass shooting seeking answers about marketing their products to teens and children.

Alfred Garza III, father of Amerie Jo Garza, released the letter alongside Texas attorney Mikal Watts and Connecticut attorney Josh Koskoff. Koskoff and his team helped negotiate a $73 million settlement in the wake of a lawsuit against the now-defunct Remington and its insurer, the maker of the AR-15 used in the 2012 Sandy Hook massacre.
