    Lucky Gunner to donate legal fees awarded

    http://www.luckygunner.com/brady-v-lucky-gunner

    Lucky Gunner was awarded legal fees after successfully beating back a blatant political agenda attack via lawsuit filed by the Brady bunch.

    They are going to donate those funds to a 2A-focused organization, based on input from the hoi-poloi. Their discussion of the issue and the choices to pick from are at the link.

    It's sort of like those TV talent shows - 'Murica (or a subset thereof) get to pick its favorite.

    stay safe.

    I called the top three, in order. LOL at NRA a distant third.

    That said, I hope they can afford to do this. They remarked how they had to raise the money for the defense, but once paid back, they can afford to donate it? Honorable, yes. But they absolutely had the right to keep the money recovered. Good advertising, too, though. I admit I'd never heard of them until they were sued, so they deserve it, thanks to the Brady Center!

    Hmm, so $110,000+ in DONATIONS to the Brady Center are going to 2nd Amendment organizations? That's awesome. Someone at the Brady Center might lose their bonus over that one.

    The Bradys have been losing membership, jettisoning excess baggage, and otherwise declining for some time. I'm not sure they have $110K between money in the bank and regular/recurring donations.

    If they cannot pay, the tactic of getting a judgement against them has appeal. Place a value on their name, mailing lists, and other assets. Taking those will put them out of business - although there is a possibility that Bloomberg/Soros will create and fund some sort of replacement organization. Doing so, IMHO, will be a Good Thing(TM) as it will expose the astroturfing.

    stay safe.

    Lucky Gunner makes national pledge. BCPGV to pay legal fees after loss. TWT

    " By Stephen Gutowski - Washington Free Beacon - - Monday, June 29, 2015 : A federal judge has ordered the Brady Center to Prevent Gun Violence pay the legal fees of an online ammunition dealer it sued for the Aurora movie theater shooting.

    The order, which was issued last week, comes after Judge Richard P. Matsch dismissed the gun control group’s suit that sought to hold Lucky Gunner legally responsible for the 2012 shooting. The Brady Center had argued in their suit that the way Lucky Gunner sells ammunition is “unreasonably dangerous and create a public nuisance.” “A crazed, homicidal killer should not be able to amass a military arsenal, without showing his face or answering a single question, with the simple click of a mouse,” Brady Center’s Legal Action Project Director Jonathan Lowy said at the time. “If businesses choose to sell military-grade equipment online, they must screen purchasers to prevent arming people like James Holmes.”
