Gary Miller

Liberal judge ignores federal law? Nothing new! Will GM be sued when a drunk uses a Suburban to kill a family?

Gary Scoggin

Jack Ewing is a liberal? That's hilarious.

Jim Forsythe

Gary, the case is not about buying a Suburban by a under age person, but it is about , "Under federal law, a person must be 18 to buy shotgun ammunition and 21 to buy handgun ammunition."

Did the companies do the right thing or did they sell to a person that was not of age to buy their product?

Carlos Ponce

The company, "Lucky Gunner" "had faced a similar lawsuit after the 2012 Aurora movie theater shooting in Colorado in which 12 people were killed. But a federal judge dismissed that lawsuit in 2015." "under the federal Protection of Lawful Commerce in Arms Act which prohibits firearms and ammunition manufacturers and dealers from being held liable when their products are used in crimes."

That's Jim for you! DEMAND proof of age and identification to purchase ammunition but not to verify identity and age on mail in voting!

This will be tossed out if it goes further.

Jim, if you demand verification on ammo sales, shouldn't you be consistent and demand verification for ballots?

Jim Forsythe

I'm not demanding anything, just stating what the lawsuit is about. Gary was talking about federal law, and I posted it.

The system has ruled that it can be heard and the judge or jury will decide what the outcome should be. Part of the outcome will hinge on what ID is required to buy ammo on line.

Carlos Ponce

More laws through judicial decree? Not good.

Jim Forsythe

Same laws.

Carlos Ponce

Those laws passed Constitutional muster, Jim.

Jim Forsythe

And the judge or jury will rule if the law apply in this case.

Also will rule if " federal law that protects companies when their products are used in crimes" applies in this case.

Gary Scoggin

I fully expect that this ruling will be overturned as the fraud was committed by the shooter and the ammunition seller's due diligence appers to be adequate. Bringing a bigger company into the mix is a classic trial lawyer move as they search for the deepest pockets they can find.
