On Monday, two Milwaukee Police officers filed the second lawsuit against a local gun dealer in recent months. In the last two years, people used weapons sold at Badger Guns to shoot six Milwaukee Police officers. Two more injured officers filed suit against the gun dealer. Graham Kunisch and Bryan Norberg have permanent disabilities since being shot at close range by 18-year old Julius Burton last summer. On Monday, they joined other officers in the suit against Badger Guns for being negligent when selling the guns used to shoot them.
“Badger Guns needs to be held accountable for irresponsibly supplying guns to criminals who have shot and seriously wounded brave Milwaukee police officers,” said Paul Helmke, President of the Brady Center to Prevent Gun Violence in a statement.
“We proudly stand with law enforcement against corrupt gun dealers whose reckless and illegal conduct places police officers in harms way.” "In some years, it's found to be the number one seller of crime guns in the country," said Jonathan Lowy of the Brady Center.
"It's our hope that we can bring compensation to these brave, heroic victims also to send a message to send a message to sellers like Badger (that) if they profit off of selling guns to criminals, they have to pay the consequences."
