    7/8/2012: Erik Scott's family RENEWS lawsuit against Costco

    Edit: 6/8/2012

    Erik Scott was the concealed carrier who inadvertently exposed his handgun while shopping in the Summerlin, NV, Costco, and was killed by LV MPD officers while leaving the store.

    The previous lawsuit against Metro PD and the officers was dropped, because of the extreme burden of overcoming their immunity. The suit against Costco was only suspended, and has now been reinstated.

    The video is worth watching, and is more informative than just the text of the article.

    Eyewitnesses at the inquest gave conflicting stories about whether Scott had been acting erratically, but the lawsuit will argue that no one from the store ever asked Erik to leave, that a manager was helping him during the time the caller was telling police sSott was destroying merchandise, and that Scott never once touched his weapon.

    "There was none of this nonsense of him being out of control and screaming and causing a problem. By all accounts of the witnesses in the store, many of whom have not been heard from yet, that situation was painted very erroneously by the 911 call," said Scott.

    According to the Scott's lawyer, Costco's own policies prohibit anyone other than a manager from calling police. The 911 caller was not a manager. They also say the store does not post signs, even today, that tell customers that guns are not allowed.

    Bill Scott also hinted that he has some surprise witnesses from within the Costco organization who will bolster the family's case.

    But this is good news. This story needs to NOT go away for a very long time if ever.

    Indeed there was; edited to reflect my typo.

    Plus one for knowing how to spell "amok". I've been amuck, but it involved being ankle deep in horse poop, with a shovel.

    True enough, but I think the correct word here would be "amiss," not "amok." After all, the date is not rampaging around causing destruction, it's just....not right.
    Guns don't kill people. Drivers on cell phones do.

    Some of the opinions with people on that article are bit left field. "He was wrong the second he entered the store with a gun"?? I can tell half the people who responded to that article aren't fans of weapons. The never ending battle of there was no gun buster sign yet they say they don't allow firearms in the store. There not even close with this matter and people are making statements saying he was wrong for conceal carrying into the store, wtf people!
    Nothing better than a Glock.........except maybe another Glock!
