In light of the recent death of a store customer in Buds Gun Shop, the company is considering the next steps to address the tragic incident. While this is a setback for Buds Gun Shop, there is no doubt that the company will remain a trusted resource for gun buyers. But if it truly wants to remain a trusted resource, it must take more drastic measures.
Smith & Wesson’s dangerous sales and marketing practices lead to mass shootings
A lawsuit filed against Smith & Wesson alleges deceptive marketing practices and unfair marketing of assault rifles, which are used in mass shootings. The lawsuit also says that the company failed to properly warn consumers about the dangers of these weapons and marketed them in a way that made them appealing to the wrong audience. Furthermore, it alleges that Smith & Wesson made a false association between the military and these firearms. A number of other lawsuits say the company sold the weapons in a negligent and even illegal manner.
The company has denied these accusations and continues to engage in dangerous marketing practices. It has defended its practices claiming that the advertising tactics are not responsible for the deaths of the victims. However, the company has refused to address the allegations and continues to sell guns to impulsive and violent consumers. Despite the outrage that follows mass shootings, the company has continued to sell its products.
The marketing practices of Smith & Wesson are at the core of these tragedies. The company’s M&P line of assault rifles has been unfairly marketed to make them look like products that are used by the U.S. military. This strategy is called the “halo effect,” and it is particularly effective with young men who are obsessed with militaristic combat missions. While this tactic may be effective in driving sales of certain firearms, it does not help people who are afflicted with mental illness.
Lawsuits against shooter’s father
The lawsuits allege that the shooter’s father was negligent in transferring the gun to his son. Specifically, the lawsuits say that the father of the shooter assisted his son in purchasing a Smith & Wesson M&P15 rifle and helped him obtain a gun permit. The lawsuits have been filed in Lake County Circuit Court.
One lawsuit filed on behalf of the family of the victims of the shooting claims that the shooter’s father sold the shooter a loaded firearm. The lawsuits also say the gun was improperly advertised to make it look like it was a military weapon. Aside from that, the lawsuits also say that the gun was sold in a negligent manner, which is illegal and potentially dangerous.
The lawsuit also names Red Dot Arms and Bud’s Gun Shop as defendants. According to the lawsuits, the companies knew that Crimo lived in the area and wanted to purchase an assault weapon. Despite this, they decided to sell the gun to the shooter anyway. The lawsuits also allege that the gun distributor and the gun’s father violated Illinois assault weapons ban laws.
