Slain Officer Widow Sues Gunshop
#1
Quote:PHILADELPHIA (AP) — The widow of a slain police officer has filed suit against a suburban Philadelphia gun dealer over the sale of a weapon used to kill the officer two years ago.
The suit was filed against In Site Firearms and Law Enforcement Supplies of Jeffersonville by Lynsay Fox, wife of Plymouth Township officer Bradley Fox, who was shot and killed in September 2012 by a gunman who later killed himself. A man later pleaded guilty to fraudulent purchase of the weapon.
The lawsuit alleges that the company should have known he was a straw purchaser. A message left for the company owner was not immediately returned Monday.
The Brady Campaign to Prevent Gun Violence announced the lawsuit as part of a nationwide campaign targeting gun dealers over weapons used in crimes.

Unless the guy made some mention that the firearm was for someone else and they can prove it I don't see how you can make a case against the shop. Am I missing something?

May be his 4473 looked like this.

Ammunition, it's the new lead bullion. Buy it cheap and stack it deep.

Good luck proving intent. Is the person who illegally bought and sold the gun also being sued?

Probably not, the point is to shut down the gun dealers.

Anybody can sue anyone for anything. The lawyers all get paid in the end.
