Brady Campaign, parents of Aurora shooting victim name Lucky Gunner in lawsuit, claim negligence

This suit is the second filed by Brady since the organization launched its national “Stop Bad Apple Gun Dealers” campaign almost two weeks ago to target stores that act as a conduit for firearms and firearm items entering criminal markets.

The Brady Campaign to Prevent Gun Violence, and parents of a victim of the 2012 Aurora movie theater shooting, filed a civil suit against Lucky Gunner and a handful of other online retailers that sold the accused gunman the items used during the massacre.

In the complaint, filed in a federal court in Colorado on Sept. 16, Sandy and Lonnie Phillips claim the online retailers failed to implement safeguards that would prevent dangerous people from obtaining items like the high-capacity magazines, thousands of rounds of ammo, body armor and tear gas used during the shooting that killed their daughter, Jessica Ghawi, along with 11 others, and injured 58.

Along with Lucky Gunner, The Sportsman’s Guide, BTP Arms, and BulletProofBodyArmorHQ.com have been named in the suit for “unreasonably dangerous” business practices that negligently supply “combat supplies” to criminal markets.
