A site that facilitates private sale of firearms allowed a person to buy a gun that he then sold on the black market....and they are sueing for monetary benefits. Sounds like shit to me. And before someone comes at me with blue lives matter...I agree. My brother is a cop, but this kind of crap charging the business with the crime of doing business with someone who commits a crime is retarded. I will forever say so.

Here’s a thought! Why don’t you go after the guy that actually shot your husband? Oh... he doesn’t have any money... that’s right.

From all I can find, the gun was legally sold from one person to the next through the right channels. Only later did the gun turn up in the hands of a felon!

So... I sell someone a car and they sell it to someone else who uses it to drive into a crowd of schoolchildren... I am to blame? Guns aren't evil. They are a tool that can be used for defense or evil purposes, but the person who does evil is the problem.

That’s like saying Home Depot was responsible for the Oklahoma City bombing a cause they didn’t properly vet their fertilizer sales

So in a car wreck, where the driver purposely aims at bystanders, and you sue the car manufacture.

This is why we need to allow for the prosecution of indivisos who sell guns used in crimes. No one is gonna be selling a 9mm to their shit head cousin devandrius if they have a reasonable fear that his shit bagarry will blow back on them when he shoots someone.
