A Wisconsin gun shop will pay $1 million to settle a lawsuit in which a jury found it negligently sold a gun used to injure two Milwaukee police officers, the store's attorney said.
The settlement eliminates what was expected to be a yearslong appeal of an October verdict in which jurors awarded Officer Bryan Norberg and former Officer Graham Kunisch nearly $6 million.
An attorney for Badger Guns, James Vogts, told the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel late Friday that the case has "been settled and dismissed."
"This case is over," Vogts said. He declined to say why his client decided not to appeal.
This, this is what needs to happen all over the country in order to hold gun stores accountable for the deaths they enable due to straw purchases and poor background checks.
And this should be something that the Right Wing wants as well.
Remember straw purchases were how those San Bernardino shooters got their weapons as well.
