Missouri Gun Shop Agrees To Pay $2.2 Million To Settle Lawsuit Over Firearm Sale – “Delana filed her lawsuit after her daughter, Colby Weathers, bought a gun at Odessa Gun & Pawn Shop and used it to kill Tex Delana, her father and Delana’s husband. Delana had called the store on June 25, 2012, pleading with it not to sell a gun to her daughter. Weathers had bought a gun there previously and later attempted to commit suicide. Delana gave the store manager her daughter’s full name, Social Security number and birthdate and told him, ‘I’m begging of you. I’m begging of you as a mother, if she comes in, please don’t sell her a gun,’ her lawsuit stated.”
The half-emtpy view? . . . Squandering a once in a lifetime opportunity for gun rights – “This is the part where I’m supposed to get excited that at least a simple majority of unaccountable government appointed lawyers may decide if I can keep my rights or liberties that have already been stripped by elected tyrants IF the right plaintiff with standing files suit against ONE out of the THOUSANDS of laws passed in states all over the country and federally, and ONLY IF those unaccountable government appointed lawyers even decide to hear the case at all, and then IF we can count on them actually ruling in the Constitution’s favor, Roberts. Yay.”
YouTube Stops Dumping Money Into Gun Channel Pockets – “Interesting, but not surprising. haha “banned in South Korea”… Why do we give a shit about south Korea’s gun laws? Youtube often just restricts stuff by region, I don’t know why they don’t just block the viewing of all gun videos from South Korea. Has YouTube even met America? Seemingly not.” Oh, they have. And this is a part of it they don’t happen to like.
Gun rights group: US should appoint special ‘second amendment’ prosecutor – “Many advocates believe the justice department’s investigations of civil rights violations by local police departments will virtually end under a Trump administration. But a not-for-profit organization based in Washington state that funds gun rights litigation hopes that Trump’s justice department will put its focus on a different civil rights issue: state laws which it believes violate gun owners’ rights. The Second Amendment Foundation suggested last week that Trump’s attorney general should appoint a “special assistant” in charge of defending gun rights.” Turnabout is fair play.
Baltimore entrepreneur wants to get guns off the streets in exchange for bail – “‘I grew up in a culture of violence in Baltimore City, and as I got older, I wanted to do something to and positively impact my community, to do something that made a difference for minority young adults like me,’ Brooks said. That’s how the idea for his startup GunBail came about. GunBail’s concept would allow family or friends of arrested individuals to exchange firearms for prison bail. Brooks, 46, is hoping to launch a pilot for the company, in partnership with law enforcement in Baltimore City, early next year.”
