Mass. gun-maker to pay $600K in gun-death lawsuit
Kahr apparently employed a dirtbag with a coke habit - you know, the kind of person that San Francisco is trying to make a "protected" class of employee - who stole a gun and sold it for drugs. He broke multiple state and federal laws when he took possession of the firearm, as well as numerous laws against possession of illicit substances. The gun changed hands several times and ultimately wound up used in a shooting where someone was killed.
BOSTON — A Massachusetts gun-maker has agreed to pay nearly $600,000 to the families of one man who was killed and another man who was wounded in a shooting involving a gun allegedly stolen from the company, a national gun-control group announced Tuesday.
Danny Guzman, 26, was slain outside a Worcester nightclub in 1999. Armando Maisonet was wounded in the same shooting.
Since dirtbag drug addicts don't have deep pockets - but Kahr does - they wound up on the wrong end of a wrongful death suit.
It's hard to tell who I'm more angry at: Kahr for settling, or a judge for allowing the trial to go forward. Obviously Kahr thought that they stood at least a fair chance of losing the lawsuit in court if they offered a settlement; one wonders what backroom deals were cut, etc. This hands the antis a golden opportunity - and the Brady Campaign wastes no time reveling in the blood of the innocents.
Again, substitute "car" for Kahr. Imagine, if you will, that someone from a dealership stole a car off the lot and traded it for drugs. The car changes hands numerous times and then is used to run someone over. Would Ford be on the hook? You can't help but think the lawsuit would be laughed out of the courtroom. But when it's ZOMG EVIL GUNZZZ!!!! all perspective goes right out the window. And Kahr just rolled over and played dead. Thanks.
Well, guess that settles it - no PM9 for me.
That is all.
