Firearms manufacturer Remington on Sunday night filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection.

Be smart: The filing came just 24 hours after a wave of pro-gun control marches, but Remington had signaled its bankruptcy plans prior to the high school shooting in Parkland, Florida.

  • Reminder: Filing for Chapter 11 does not always equate to going out of business, and Remington has some new financing in hand. Rival gunmaker Colt, for example, once filed for bankruptcy and later reemerged.
  • An attorney representing Sandy Hook families in their lawsuit against Remington says: “We do not expect this filing to affect the families’ case in any material way.”

Facebook’s rules for what people can say on the world’s largest social network have been a long-term headache for the company, but now it faces similar troubles on the internal network its own staff uses.

Driving the news: As political arguments on Facebook’s employee discussion boards have grown more heated and divisive, the company ordered new restrictions on the forums earlier this month, which run on Facebook’s Workplace platform.

Amy Coney Barrett's likely ascension to the Supreme Court would affect climate policy beyond shoving the court rightward in the abstract.
