The lawyer cited the two different 15-22 issues. Both examples referenced "she" as the shooter. I question the odds of a "she" each time. It then provides a brief background on this personnal injury attorney: "In terms of five-dollar words, James is a millionaire. Born in North Texas to two college professors, he is glad both to learn and to teach, and the law provides ample opportunities for both."
I somewhat agree with your thought process on it. As an interested buyer, I did my due diligence in researching the rifle and I'll tell you for every 5 articles I read about a good experience, I found an article about a bad experience or safety issue. When is the last time you heard about a safety issue with the 10/22? As horrible as the 715T is, how many safety issues have you heard about that rifle? I follow a Facebook group devoted to 15-22 owners. The problem is more common than most would recognize.

Given S&W's history and reputation in the market and the fact a well-known organization has banned its product for safety issues, it comes as no surprise that some attorney would jump at the opportunity to take them to court.
