Hey guys, just found this over in the land of Glock, and thought I'd bring it over here. This made something pop out in my head, but I'm not sure why... Read my reply below for details. Family to File Lawsuit Against Gun Manufacturer Kahr Arms in the Shooting Death of Danny Guzman To: Assignment Desk, Daybook Editor Contact: Nancy Hwa of the Brady Center, 202-289-7319 or Hector Pineiro, 508-770-0600 News Advisory: -- Family to File Lawsuit Against Gun Manufacturer Kahr Arms in the Shooting Death of Danny Guzman -- Company is a Business Subsidiary of the Rev. Sun Myung Moon's Unification Church Worcester attorney Hector Pineiro, the family of Danny Guzman, and local activists will be holding a press conference on Thursday, Aug. 15 at 11 a.m. to announce the filing of a lawsuit against local gun manufacturer Kahr Arms in the 1999 shooting death of Danny. The press conference will be held on the steps of the Worcester Superior Courthouse on Main Street in Worcester, MA. The Brady Center to Prevent Gun Violence is serving as co-counsel in this case.

The case has exposed the lack of security, record keeping, and other reasonable safeguards at Kahr Arms. Also named in the suit is Kahr Arms' parent company, One Up Enterprises, a holding company for the Reverend Sun Myung Moon's Unification Church.

So, now you are liable for guns STOLEN from you??? This suit won't succeed in producing a judgment against Kahr, but it might succeed in bankrupting them. Didn't (US) Congress pass legislation against these junk lawsuits????

For some reason, when I saw: [b]Contact: Nancy Hwa of the Brady Center, 202-289-7319 or Hector Pineiro, 508-770-0600 [/b] I thought of [url]http://www.pincity.com/smsfree.asp[/url], and I can't quite explain where the association came from. Something to do with flooded voicemail boxes, I think... [devil]

I just had a lengthy conversation withe Mr. Pinheiro. Kahr may be screwed on this one. More later.

While I can't see suing them for the death of this guy, I can see them getting tagged a certain percentage for the negligence involved. If YOU ran a carlot and hired drunk drivers without screening them out, you'd probably be liable when of these "dealers" killed a kid on the way home in your dealer car. Just modern pass-the-buckism.

I'm not a lawyer but I don't think they are going to use the "guns as objects of evil" path, they are going to hit the "kahr was negligent in hiring criminals" path and judging by how some other cases like this turned out, Kahr may be screwed. On the other hand, that icon of American Upstanding-ism, OJ Simpson, showed that with the right people and the right amount of money, ANY verdict is possible. Good luck Kahr arms- Crash.

Freaking retards! Damn it I'm growing tired of the fu(kin insanity.

So would it help if we all went out and bought a Kahr? I'd like having one, but have had other priorities. ----------------------------------- I fly low, there's less traffic down here.
