Concetta DeRosa v. Remington Arms Company, INC. Police Officer William V. DeRosa was killed on the night of January 31, 1976 by a Remington standard model 870P hunting shotgun (modified for law enforcement use) carried by Police Officer Kenneth Paton. The 870P contains three safety devices: “a mechanical device which until disengaged locks the trigger and prevents the gun from being fired; a trigger guard that is intended to prevent idle bumps from causing inadvertent firings-by requiring that the trigger finger be placed inside the guard; and, finally, a pump action whose operation by positively pushing it into a closed position is a prerequisite to firing.” The shotgun’s trigger pull is four and a half pounds stock. The industry standard is three-and-three-quarters to six-and-one- half pounds. During the police response Paton disengaged the mechanical safety while in the vehicle against SOP. As Paton tried to unload the weapon it discharged and killed Officer DeRosa.
