OMB Guns Glock Lawsuit
The Facts on an Obtaining a Glock Gun Lawsuit
A few decades ago, a disgruntled former employee of the Remington Omb Gun company sent a blistering letter to the Federal Firearms License (FFL) office in Montana, warning that he planned to shoot any distributor of Remington firearms who did not comply with the “buy one, get one free” policy. The FFL quickly decided to deny his claim, and the former employee was never allowed to buy a single gun. He was a national hero for fighting for what he believed to be an illegal conspiracy and was rewarded by serving time in jail, a hefty fine, and an embarrassing public relations campaign. His case became a cause cased by the media and the citizens of both Montana and Massachusetts.
What was not reported at the time was that the man who sent the threatening letter was actually the victim of extortion.
Apparently, he had been fired from his job for complaining about unsafe working conditions and improper health and safety regulations. He then went on to threaten legal action against the firearms license carrier, and the manufacturer of the guns. His attorney sent a cease and desist order to the company, which is how it came to be involved in this bizarre case.
This is just one example of how guns get involved in lawsuits where the victim cannot simply go out and buy a gun. Some attorneys think that it is important to challenge any ownership of a firearm, but they often forget that the Second Amendment gives the right to keep and bear arms. In short, if the owner of the weapon used it in a crime, he faces the possibility of being sued. That is why you never see a TV reporter asking a criminal if they had a gun or if they were related to any gun-related crime. It simply wouldn’t make any sense.
There are many different types of lawsuits that can be filed when someone is injured or killed because another party was wrongfully responsible for using a firearm in the commission of a crime.
Umbrella law is what many people call this, as it refers to a situation where an individual who owns a particular type of weapon is responsible for anyone who uses it in an illegal way. As an example, if an individual accidentally shoots a twelve-year old girl, her parents might sue to recover money for injury and emotional trauma.
So, what does all of this have to do with Glocks?
The fact that a handgun is a handgun can certainly influence the outcome of a Glock lawsuit. Glocks have been known to be quite effective at stopping criminals from obtaining their weapons. Therefore, gun owners are often tempted to simply carry around more than one gun for self-defense reasons. But that simply isn’t smart. If your life could depend on the safety of your gun, wouldn’t you want to be very careful about what kind of gun you own?
In the world of gun control, there are limits, regulations, and lists of prohibited weapons.
Unfortunately, there is no list of fully permitted firearms, such as Glocks. However, Glocks are still used by many people for protection, and if they were outlawed, would people stop using them? Probably not; they are a very effective method of self defense, and they have proven to be much less likely to cause accidental death or injury than other types of handguns.
However, that doesn’t mean that a person can’t file a Glock lawsuit against another individual or company that owns or carries the type of firearm in question.
For instance, if you were walking down the street, and an individual fired a gun in your direction, and it missed, you may be able to sue. If that individual later returned to fire a gun in your direction, again, you may be able to sue. If they didn’t have a gun, but had a sawed off shotgun, you may be able to sue. If you accidentally fell and injured yourself with that gun in question, you may be able to sue as well. It really depends on the circumstances of the incident, but the point is to protect your rights and file whatever suits are appropriate in the state in which you live.
The thing about a Glock Lawsuit is that many gun owners feel that they are simply protecting their rights; they believe that they are not being hurt by other individuals utilizing a firearm in an improper manner, or otherwise causing harm. The thing is, other individuals’ perceptions can often be misleading. For instance, consider the fact that there are certain states that allow their citizens to carry handguns even if they do not possess a concealed weapons license (CDL). Other states place restrictions on carrying handguns, often times placing them against the rights of the individual. A Glock lawsuit could make the distinction between being allowed to defend yourself and having your civil rights infringed upon in one situation or the other.
