Brady Center Sues Gander Mountain Over 2010 Straw Buyer

politicsOn Tuesday, ambulance the Brady Center to Prevent Gun Violence filed suit against Gander Mountain contending the company acted negligently in selling guns to a straw buyer that were later used to ambush a team of New York volunteer firefighters.

Dawn Nguyen at a Gander Mountain store in Henrietta, there New York, bought the firearms in question, a .223-caliber rifle, and a 12-gauge shotgun, in 2010 on behalf of her neighbor, William Spengler Jr. The two entered the store together and Nguyen paid cash, given to her by her neighbor, for the guns.

Spengler, a convicted felon barred from owning firearms, subsequently used the rifle in a Dec. 24, 2012 attack on four firefighters who were responding to a house fire he created as a trap. Two of the volunteers later died.

Nguyen, now 25, was convicted last month of felony charges that include falsifying a business record and giving the guns to a convicted felon.-[source]
