Parents lose daughter, then lose minds.
I’ve talked on the show multiple times that I felt bad that the Brady Center to Prevent Gun Violence had taken advantage of two people that were crushed by the loss of their daughter to a madman. I speculated that they weren’t thinking straight due to grief, which is why they would try to sue an ammunition retailer for the loss of their daughter.
Nope, just idiots.
We brought our lawsuit because we thought it was outrageous that companies could sell a dangerous man an arsenal without getting any information about him, and without making any effort to see if he was a dangerous killer — which he was. When the killer had left a voicemail with a shooting range, the range operator knew that he was bad news and shouldn’t be given access to guns. But these companies set up their business so people just like this killer can arm themselves at the click of a mouse. We wanted to change that. And we still do.
They speculate that it’s unconstitutional to financially punish people for bringing a lawsuit. Well folks, maybe you shouldn’t bring ridiculous lawsuits. Now they are after politicians. Pay the money, mourn your daughter and take a hike.
We believe that the judge’s decision was wrong, and that it is unconstitutional to financially punish people for bringing a lawsuit, especially a public interest case that did not seek a dime. But rather than risk possibly being ordered to pay even more fees, we are changing our focus from going after these laws in the judicial branch (we have dropped our appeal) to getting them overturned on the legislative level.
