Napolitano: Shooting Victim's Lawsuit Against Gun Manufacturer Could Set Dangerous Precedent
A new lawsuit could have major ramifications for gun manufacturers. Judge Andrew Napolitano joined Varney & Co. to discuss the specifics of the case.
Daniel Williams is suing a gun manufacturer, saying that they sold weapons to an irresponsible dealer. The dealer then sold the guns illegally to a trafficker, who subsequently sold them to a man who was later convicted of shooting Williams.
Napolitano believes this case could set a dangerous precedent in that it is trying
to find culpable a defendant who is so far removed from the actual crime. He asked, “Should General Motors have to pay for every automobile accident because one of their cars ends up in the hands of somebody who is a lousy driver?”
