(CNN) -- Remington is offering to pay more than $3.5 million each to families of victims killed in the Sandy Hook massacre.

Court documents filed Tuesday revealed the offered settlement, which totals nearly $33 million.

Nine families are suing the firearms manufacturer. They claim, in part, Remington marketed its Bushmaster's version of the AR-15 rifle for people to "carry out offensive, military style combat missions against their perceived enemies."

In 2021, Adam Lanza used the gun to murder 20 children and 6 adults at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Connecticut.

No word on if the families will accept Remington's offer. Their lawyers said in a statement they will "consider their next steps."
