Some of the families of the victims of the Sandy Hook Elementary School shootings have filed a lawsuit.

FOX News Radio's Jessica Golloher reports:

A law firm representing a teacher injured, and nine of the 26 people killed in the shootings in Newtown, Connecticut are suing the distributor, seller and manufacturer of the Bushmaster AR-15 rifle used in the slayings.

The wrongful death and negligence lawsuit alleges that the rifle should not have been available to the public, because it's a military weapon.

The families have also named firearm distributor Camfour and Riverview Gun Sales, where the rifle was purchased in 2010, in the suit. The 40-page complaint was filed in Bridgeport Superior Court.
