Family members of the Sandy Hook victims are filing suit against the company that made the rifle used in the deadly shooting spree and the business that sold it.  The "Wall Street Journal" reports nine families of victims and one survivor have filed a wrongful death lawsuit against gun manufacturer Bushmaster Firearms International and Connecticut's Riverview Gun Sales. 

Adam Lanza killed his mother, 20 school children and six staff members in December of 2012 using a Bushmaster rifle.  The lawsuit claims the high-powered weapon is unfit for civilian use.
