If someone came into your store and wanted to buy a handgun and told you that they were buying it for themselves for protection, would you be able to discern if they were telling the truth or not? Would you be able to know that they were really buying it for a convicted felon who was a close friend?

According to the Brady anti-gun group, the answer should be yes, you should be able to discern the real intent behind the purchase of the gun, at least that seems to be the crux of a lawsuit they have filed against Cabela’s for the legal sale of handgun that was then given to the convicted boyfriend of the purchaser. The gun was later traded and then used in the shooting death of 19-year-old and the wounding of two others.

(Guns.com) – A national gun control group is going after the big box retailer over the sale of a pistol that was later traded by a felon and used in a shooting that killed a Delaware woman. The Brady Campaign, representing the family of slain 19-year-old Keshall “KeKe” Anderson, announced the lawsuit against Cabela’s filed this week in a Delaware Superior Court.

The group is seeking damages from the sporting goods chain, arguing that store employees ignored warning signs of July 2016 illegal “straw purchase” made by the girlfriend of a long-time criminal, John Kuligowski. The .40-caliber handgun, according to federal court documents, was soon traded on the street by Kuligowski for a stolen .22 LR pistol, which he had on him when arrested by police on outstanding warrants just four days after the Cabela’s sale.

The .40-caliber handgun acquired in the straw purchase was later tied to a September 2016 drive-by shooting in Wilmington. Anderson, a young mother described as an innocent bystander in the shooting, died of her wounds in the incident and two 17-year-olds, Abdullah Brown and Denota Carney, are currently facing a second trial on murder and weapons charges after the first one ended earlier this year in a mistrial…

Holding Cabela responsible for what happened after the legal sale of the handgun is like holding U-Haul responsible for someone who legally rents a truck, only to use it in a terrorist attack. The absurdity behind this lawsuit clearly demonstrates the agenda of the Brady group in that they only want to force Cabela and others to stop selling all guns.
