Geoffrey Fieger, the lawyer responsible for filling the two $100 million lawsuits on behalf of the victims of the Oxford High school shooting, hopes that the lawsuits will bring about more gun control laws in the near future.
As reported in WXYZ Detroit:
The suit is filed against school administrators, teachers, and counselors. It alleges the district received complaints about [name of alleged shooter] posts on social media and that teachers and counselors saw his concerning drawings and failed to protect other students.
Attorney Fieger says he hopes the lawsuit results in such a large payout that it motivates a change in gun laws.
Attorney Fieger says we need to make guns less accessible somehow.
“These folks are the ones that are endangering all of us,” he said, pointing at the poster. “They are the ones that are out there screaming the loudest about taking away their gun rights.”
The comments from attorney Fieger started about gun control and how legislatures need to do more to stop gun violence, but that is not the full extent of his comments. Fieger would go on in another statement to rail against gun owners and 2A advocated saying “They’re the poster children for the second amendment gun nuts. Who go, Yeah, Give everyone guns!” in reference to the parents of the accused shooter.
The timing of the two major lawsuits from Fieger were seen as offensive by many in the area as the lawsuit was announced while a funeral for one of the victims was still ongoing and the lawsuit is targeting several school officials and teachers who were in the building at the time of the shooting.
