The family is grieving, we all get it. Their loss is horrific and something few can imagine. But to “use” the loss of a life as a political weapon, a tool, is perhaps the lowest of low and thankfully a federal judge saw right through it. The verdict is not surprising, nor is the Brady Center’s use of people as if they’re nothing more than political pawns. The suit wasn’t brought by the Brady Center, but they’ve openly supported the case.
Think about it. If the guns were completely outlawed, outright banned, the killer in Aurora wouldn’t have been able to get them, just like he can’t get Meth or Cocaine, right? I mean, if it’s illegal that will stop the baddies. Liberal logic is just plain stupid. Drugs are on every street corner despite the TRILLIONS spent on the “War on Drugs”… that’s been a huge success. Little 12 year olds are buying crack all across the country, and they could buy illegal guns, too, if they want to.
Back to this case… a federal judge has ordered that the plaintiffs in a lawsuit targeting an online ammunition dealer over the Aurora movie theater shooting pay the legal fees of the companies they sued.
The order, which was issued last week, comes after Judge Richard P. Matsch dismissed the gun control group’s suit that sought to hold Lucky Gunner legally responsible for the 2012 shooting. The Brady Center to Prevent Gun Violence—which supported the plaintiffs, Sandy and Lonnie Phillips, whose daughter was killed in the Aurora shooting—had argued that the way Lucky Gunner sells ammunition is “unreasonably dangerous and create a public nuisance.”
“A crazed, homicidal killer should not be able to amass a military arsenal, without showing his face or answering a single question, with the simple click of a mouse,” Brady Center’s Legal Action Project Director Jonathan Lowy said at the time. “If businesses choose to sell military-grade equipment online, they must screen purchasers to prevent arming people like James Holmes.”
Judge Matsch disagreed with the Brady Center’s argument. He said the suit was filed for propaganda purposes. “It is apparent that this case was filed to pursue the political purposes of the Brady Center and, given the failure to present any cognizable legal claim, bringing these defendants into the Colorado court where the prosecution of James Holmes was proceeding appears to be more of an opportunity to propagandize the public and stigmatize the defendants than to obtain a court order,” he said in his order.
Lucky Gunner praised the court’s decision and vowed to do everything in its power to recover the money awarded to it by the ruling. If you’d like to support Lucky Gunner stop by and check out their low, low prices and great ammo deals right here!
