Manhattan Man Pursues Lawsuit Against Remington Arms After Death of Son

Posted: Updated:

Richard Barber tells FOX Montana, "Had I had this information available to me, I could of done something to affect the outcome of that day."

Barber says one of the most popular weapons in America has a serious flaw that can cause it to misfire. It's something he has personal experience with.

In 2000, his wife released the safety lock on their 700-Bolt-Action rifle, manufactured by Remington Arms Company. As she prepared to load the gun, the gun fired killing his 9-year-old son.

Now, Barber is trying to push the U.S. Justice of Department to prosecute Remington for criminal fraud saying Remington knew about the malfunction in his case, and others.
