And people wondered why I opposed the Brady Bill for many reasons.
And may I also add that a database is only as good as the data in said database? When that data is either garbage or not updated, then the database is useless.
And I put a good amount of the blame for this event happening on the Air Force, who failed to update the database. Academy did nothing wrong, IMHO. They went through the federal database to check the buyer, and found nothing to prevent the sale from going through.
Sounds to me like lawyers and an activist judge trying to find how to get money from someone with deep pockets.
You can call it a "impeachment inquiry" or anything else under the sun.
Personally, there are only two ways to describe what House Democrats are doing:
Sedition, and a coup.
Plain and simple.
“…democratic socialism, the great utopia of the last few generations, is not only unachievable but that to strive for it produces something utterly different – the very destruction of freedom itself. As has been aptly said: ‘What has always made the state a hell on earth has been precisely that man has tried to make it his heaven.'” F.A. Hayek
Is eric holder in jail? Is hillary , comey linch, bidens, Obama or any of the deep state coup players illegally using office in jail. You are better off selling drugs than cattle or guns in this country. VIVA LA AMEROCANOS aahha
Much ado about nuthin (the suit not the shooting); it'll get thrown out eventually...
Academy sold a gun in Texas, to a customer with a Colorado ID. I'm not sure, but isn't that illegal? I thought If you bought a firearm in another state, it had to be transferred to an FFL in your home state, before you could pick it up. Additionally, If a person lives in Texas, but doesn't have a Texas ID, isn't it illegal to sell a gun in Texas to that person? Otherwise, why can't you just buy online and have it sent to you after the online seller does a background check?
Sorry, Academy screwed the pooch, and now gets to pay. They may wind up losing their FFL because of this.
Children, pets, and slaves get taken care of. Free Men take care of themselves.
When Democracy turns to Tyranny
I still plan to vote.
Handguns are a different story, those would have to be shipped to an ffl
The issue at hand here though was/is the magazine size not the rifle itself....
The suit is weak, they won't loose anything other then some money (a fine? legal fees? both?) over this....
You'll also find any number of on-line retailers (typically the smaller ones) who note on their site that it's up to YOU to know your state law's regarding items purchased, as all the various law's in each state (and even in different municipalities in each state) can vary widely enough it simply isn't possible for them to know Every law.

I'm a little confused. Nothing new there!
If I drive up to GA. and buy a long gun using my FL. ID I can carry the rifle out of the store and bring it home? If that's the case then why does my long gun purchase online have to go through my FFL? I know that's kind of off subject.
From the story it looks to me like the base issue is Air Force started the ball rolling. I believe that is called the root cause.
What I don't understand is the article itself. They're not blaming Academy for a lack of information in the background check database, they are blaming Academy for failing to follow federal law. I don't see this getting thrown out, but I do see it causing retailers to stop selling to out-of-state residents. I guess if you're in the USAF and want to buy a firearm, you'd better go back to your home state or chose from the large selection of guns at the BX.
That isn't cool at all. The flipping socialists are at work again trying to eliminate the second amendment.
This is the kind of action that should lead to heightened awareness that we are all in danger of losing our rights as citizens of the United States.
This is why the government cannot be trusted with such things. It is too inept. Even if their intentions are legal and Constitutional, they will eventually find a way to screw it up.
Are we there yet?
