Gun control advocates filed a groundbreaking lawsuit in Chicago Wednesday seeking to make companies that sell firearms over the Internet more accountable.
The lawsuit filed by the Brady Center to Prevent Gun Violence specifically names Armslist.com, an Internet gun website that links gun sellers with potential buyers.

There is NOTHING free men won't do to save themselves from being enslaved.
And I do mean
You know what, since they’re taking a party to task with no standing, why don’t we just join together to take any named party on this complaint to court for attempting to violate our second amendment access to weapons?
I think we could do a lot more toward scaring the living hell out of these people by employing the same tactics they do.
When a few of them start losing their homes or political clout to pay off judgments, maybe they’ll think twice.
Save the "Well then the po folks won't be able to sue the "rich folks" argument. I've heard that BS a thousand times. I'm numb to it.
I’m in. Definitely in. But where do we get legions of lawyers who are as committed to liberty as the Brady scumbags are to tyranny?
There are some legal firms that cater to Conservative ideals.
They either have the people, or could hire the people with our support.
Frankly, I’ve thought for years that every time the ACLU goes after someone, we should join the fight and bury them with the same tactics they use.
In short order, we would knock out a good portion of their network.
These people get away with it, because they aren’t confronted.
Looser pays sound great until you run into a corrupt judge.
Anyone compare the action of the Brady Bunch dancing on the bodes of the dead to the NRA’s actions yet? I’ve head nothing but exploitation from leftists.
You just may get the chance to prove it.
Too bad no conservative is filming the behavior of the employees at the Brady Center...they are dancing over this massacre.
won’t do any good, the people who buy online have to go through ffl transfers and still go through background checks, no loopholes in the process.
“the people who buy online have to go through ffl transfers and still go through background checks, no loopholes in the process.”
This is not always the case; if the seller is within the buyer’s state and the firearms are not crossing state lines, there is not much law or process standing in the way of a purchase/transfer.
By contrast the shooter in Oregon was early confronted by an armed person with a CCW. The citizen carrying didn’t fire as he didn’t have a clear shot- he saw people behind the shooter, and a miss would have endangered them. But he took cover behind a pier, and aimed at the shooter. The shooter spazed a bit with his rifle (Rack-tap-slap) and eventually shot himself. Body count (not including the shooter) was limited to 2.
In Ct. no CCW, no way to limit the body count.
Every teacher should be trained and equipped to protect their students. If they are unable or refuse, they should get another job.
if they are businesses they require ffl transfers for tracking the firearm.
if it’s a private sale they have to meet in person, generaly, because average folks can’ t mail handguns or long guns without an ffl.
Stupid lawsuit headed for an obvious defeat.
It’s the same as suing Cars.com or Autotraders.com who match up prospective buyers with car sellers. How many Americans die from car accidents? About 40,000/yr.
in cases like this it is loser pays.
The problem is “defendant must pay during suit” for civil suits.
What we need in these frivilous cases is a “no corporate protection” and mandating groups like the ACLU and brady have to post a bond to cover the cost and damages.
scarborough and cnbc were whoring it up this am.
cnn is a lost cause. FNF were cluless with their crocodile sympathy.
scarborough is the most disgusting. funny how they are sponsored by starbucks and starbucks does not stop open carry of its customers.
Principles should be armed or trained.
(odd how the teachers union does not see this as a way to have a pay enhancement)
