Doesn't the 6/27/97 date on that release indicate this is old news?

The Brady Bunch are the ones that need to be sued. Afterall wasn't it their law that was supposed to stop these thing from happening? They misrepresented themselves and misrepresented what the law would do.

I was saddened to read about this development. I remember when this murder originally took place, and I was surprised, honestly, by the feelings expressed by Det. Tucker's widow:

I'm amazed to see the change from that to what she's saying nowadays:

I can't help but wonder if the Bradys contacted her and worked on her to get her to agree to this. Apparently it took about a year of temptation...

*sigh*

Unfreakignbelievable!!!

This time, even though the same clerk who had seen McQueen intoxicated three days earlier was on duty, the shop completed the all-cash sale.
"The evidence in this case clearly shows that the gun dealer irresponsibly and illegally sold a shotgun to a man it knew to be dangerous,"
Wow. Just ... wow. What they're saying is that anyone who has ever been intoxicated is a dangerous person. Period. Not even that they might be a dangerous person ... they are. And anyone who ever does business with somebody they know to be dangerous should be open to being sued to kingdom come for irresponsible business practices.

Man - I had better get out the phone and start calling eveyone who has ever sold me a weapon.

Do I start with the car dealers?

I'm not sure how she can prevail on this one. The store did not sell it to the eventual murderer, it seems. She would be better served suing the buyer, but then, it probably is not about finding the responsible party. It's about another lonely lady (ala cindy sheehan), desperate for attention, being taken advantage of for political gain by an agenda group which only has to give her some attention to get her to pimp whatever their cause is. Maybe she should've just started dating again. Pathetic. You always see these people who have tradegies in their lives who become crusaders because they just can't move past that tradegy, and so, the tradegy defines who they are. On the other hand, sometimes people transcend their tradegies and become a symbol of strength to those around them. So I put it to you : is she acting from strength or from weakness? I suspect the latter. Take up crochet or something and leave the rest of us alone.

It's not about polictical agenda, it's about money. The buyer lived in a local mission. No money there. She went for the dealer, a pawn shop. Even if the dealer wins, the legal defense fee could put them out of buisness.

The Brady's have had a dismal year or two as far as PR and News Coverage goes. (Yay!)

Their biggest fund raiser was the Art Buchwald 80th birthday party last month and it went nowhere.

Their Big Pink Bus tour last year to "save" the AWB quit after four or five cities with no media coverage.

Murders are down, "Assault weapons" did not flood the streets as predicted, and there hasn't been a high profile school shooting or other disaster that lets them roll in the blood of the victims.

Their PR staff has been cut from 7 people full time to two, and who knows what other layoffs they have made.

Even the serious Dem candidates, at almost every level, are staying far away from the gun control issue these days. They have really fallen from the Dem Convention when they were prime time speakers.

They are struggling desperately for any kind of relevance and media visibility.

Filing these lawsuits and using the grief of the bereaved to further their own misinformed ends is the lowest form of human endeavor, IMHO.

What kind of human garbage do you have to be to have a job where you scan the papers and news programs for high visibility murders and then contact the family members to try and convince them that they should let you file a lawsuit in their name against the manufacturers of the inanimate device that killed your loved one?

Same stuff by the brady bunch, on the day the brady bill passed NBC news ran a story that said hinckley bought his gun the day he shot Reagan.
