Previously the Brady Center for the Prevention of Gun Violence in Washington, D.C. announced that a gun manufacturer agreed to pay the victims of the Washington, D.C. sniper attacks $2.5 million in damages.
This settlement marked the first time a gun manufacturer has agreed to pay damages for crimes committed with its weapons.
The settlement sent a message to the gun industry that if they look the other way when dealers supply criminals and gun traffickers they may incur liability and have to pay the consequences.
This topic is very relevant based upon current events and the struggle for gun control that is imperative.
