Supreme Court Rules Sandy Hook Families Can Sue Remington .

Remington Arms is the maker of the assault rifle that was used by Adam Lanza to kill 26 people at Sandy Hook Elementary School in 2012.

On Tuesday, the Supreme Court said that one survivor and relatives of nine victims can move forward with suing the arms company.

The lawsuit states that Remington should never have sold such an assault rifle to the public.

"The families are grateful that the Supreme Court upheld precedent and denied Remington's latest attempt to avoid accountability." - Joshua Koskoff, Sandy Hook families' lawyer.

The lawsuit is considered an exemption of the 2005 federal law, the Protection of Lawful Commerce in Arms Act.

The federal law has often been criticized by gun control advocates.

The current ruling could potentially open the doors for victims of other mass shootings to hold the makers of firearms accountable
