State Judge is allowing victims to sue retailer where AR15 was purchased. :banghead:

I haven't read the actual ruling but I wonder how it is reasoned that a retailer is responsible for the failure of the Air Force to report him to NICS. They sold a legal product that was not defective. Academy should be exempt from this lawsuit.

That wont' last. It violates both Texas and federal law.

Could their be consequences for the judge who allowed this?

Plus I heard on the news that they were also suing them for having sold the shooter some 30 round magazines. I hate to tell them, but magazine sales aren’t controlled in Texas, or almost anywhere else in the country where the commies don’t run the show.

Sounds like the plaintiff's attorney knows as much about gun laws as the vast majority of the general public does. Nada.

He knows how to invoice and collect fees.

What I read claimed that because he purchased the rifle with an out of state license and the seller is required to follow the laws of the state the buyer resides in. The 30 round magazine was illegal in his state of residence, therefore illegal to sell it to him.

I'm sure that is true for a rifle or shotgun. However, I don't think that similarly applies for magazines since no ID is required for their purchase nor is there any form to fill out to ask permission.

They further broke it down to include magazines as a part of a firearm if I remember correctly. Although it should probably be considered an accessory since the firearm could technically work without it.
