20-year-old Sues Dick's, Walmart Over new gun Policies
Mar 08, 2018, 01:34
- A MI teen is suing sporting goods store chain Dick's for refusing to sell him a gun after the retailer changed its policy in the aftermath of the deadly Parkland school shooting. Among other proposals, Dick's called for completely banning "assault-style firearms" and "high-capacity magazines", closing the "gun show loophole", and raising the minimum federal gun buying age to 21.
Whittington told ABC News that Watson is a previous gun owner and he's entitled to buy this firearm under state law, which allows residents to purchase shotguns and rifles at the age of 18.
"So we don't get sued for serving somebody that we're afraid is not responsible, might by analogy have some defense like that for the sale of firearms", Tuomala said of the relationship.
Orvis Co., the 162-year-old retailer known for its outdoorsy catalogs, is following Walmart Inc. and Dick's Sporting Goods Inc.in tightening firearms restrictions.
Each company said their decision comes in reaction to the deadly shooting in Parkland, Florida.
The exceptions to the law in subsection two specifically set apart alcohol and marijuana sales, which can be age-restricted because of state laws. The retailer had already stopped selling assault-style rifles at its main stores in 2012.
CNN reached out to both Dick's and Watson's attorney, Max Whittington - but hasn't heard back.
Oregon, however, responded with the first new gun control law since the Parkland, FL, shooting. The 19-year-old accused in the school slaying legally bought the AR-15 used in the attack.
The lawsuits, filed Monday, claimed Watson is suing to stop the stores from "unlawfully discriminating against 18- to 20-year-old customers at all OR locations".
Within a week of retailers announcing gun sales bans on adults younger than 21, a lawsuit in OR is seeking to test those policies. However, Walmart and Dicks had made a nationwide announcement about their changes in their gun policies.
According to the documents, Watson wants both Dick's and Walmart to, "stop unlawfully discriminating against 18, 19, and 20-year-old customers at all OR locations".
I can, at the age of 17, join the military and be allowed to fire fully automatic weapons, yet these businesses will not allow me to purchase any rifle or ammunition until the age of 21.
But a spokesman for Walmart told NBC News the company stands by its policy. The suit is also seeking unspecified punitive damages because of "the willful nature of the discrimination".
Knox Merkle, 19, of Moscow, said people should not be prevented from purchasing firearms just due to their age.
