The lawsuit says that even though Elliott could legally purchase weapons, the fact that he was a first-time buyer who paid $1,500 in cash for three weapons should have raised suspicions


If it "raised suspicions" they would bitch about profiling.

Mississippi gun shop, saying it was the origin of the weapon a gang member used in the killing


Unless the pawn shop manufactured the gun this will never hold up

Holy shit, you are clairvoyant.


$1,500 isn't much for three firearms. You would do good to get two for that kind of price.

Maybe the kind you or I might buy. I don't think the Chicago gangbangers are quite as discerning when they go shopping at Ed's Pawn Shop and Salvage Yard in Byhalia, MS.

Well, I'll defer top your expertise since you seem to have all of this down.

Not exactly sure what he was buying, but that seems like a pretty good deal. I'd take 3 new glock 19's for that. Hell a pair of 1911's would easily run that.

These were guns destined for the mean streets of Chicago. I highly doubt they were anything special. Probably whatever Hi-Point or Charter Arms they could get the most mark-up on from the bros.

I saw a special on the AR15 last night and they covered the printable ARs and had someone from the ATF stating that to do so showed criminal intent.

This govt loves to assign criminal intent to ridiculous things.

According to the lawsuit, Ed's Pawn Shop sold an a total of eight guns to buyers recruited by Gates for the trafficking scheme. "Ed's Pawn Shop took no reasonable steps to implement … reasonable precautions or to otherwise alter their business sales practices to minimize the risk that they would supply the criminal racket," the lawsuit alleges.


I'm a gun owner.......sounds like this guy better defend himself.

Whats fricking ridiculous is the gun shop owners will prob have to settle due to how much it will cost in order to fight these baseless claims...

Ever hear of insurance?
You think insurance companies have money trees?

I don't know what you are getting at.


Most Pawn shops in the south are licensed to sell guns and will sell new and used guns?

Its not out of the norm to use a pawn broker to order new firearms using their FFL license.

What am I thinking about... right.... NOW!?

Also... do you have a 1-800 number? I could use some help knowing what's going on in my wife's head.
