    I think this video was intended as a joke. However I also see it as a legal issue if someone innocent was ever hurt by the user. Selling a firearm for home defense that's specific use would be for long range. Should these box stores such as Walmart have experienced salesmen selling firearms, or am I looking to much into it? OH and I did send Walmart this video and a message expressing my concern.

    Why is it that people only want to talk about something after the fact when something bad happens, and not before it happens?

    I came to this thread because I was looking for something about all youth violence. We have Jackson and Sharpton who only care about whote on black for op eds. We have Bill Cosby for black on black crime who stands up for the senseless crimes without color involved?

    Doesn't anyone see through non color glasses anymore? Can't we just look at horrific crimes and say STOP THE SENSLESNESS OF IT ALL?

    The shooting of the pizza delivery boy was colorless. It was a boy who lost his life by thugs. Lets call the little bastards what they are, thugs and they come in all colors. We don't need a Sharpton to come in and point them out. We need justice and families to start doing their jobs.

    As long as the buyer passed the NICS, I don’t see the problem.

    Is it your position that the salesperson is engaging in ‘inappropriate banter’ with regard to ‘killing bad-guys’ that if indeed the buyer kills someone Walmart is potentially liable? Or that Walmart should not sell the gun to the buyer due to his statements?

    The seller (Walmart) selling the wrong tool for the job specified. The job being home defense. A high powered rifle can penetrate your walls and your neighbors wall, injuring unattended person.

    Walmart is likely covered by the Protection of Lawful Commerce in Arms Act:

    The statute is currently under review by the Alaska Supreme Court:

    Unless you are psychic, you can't talk about something bad that happens before the fact because it hasn't happened! :lol:

    I live in a brick house. My nearest neighbor lives in a brick house. Not likely to happen. You don't know where this guy lives or who his neighbors are. You seriously need a life.

    I'm not a lawyer, but if someone took the advise of that sales person from Walmart and they used it for home defense shot at the bad guy in their home, the round penetrates through their wall and goes through their neighbors home wall and kills the baby in the crib, I am pretty sure a lawyer could hold the shooter responsible and Walmart because as a seller the seller should have some basic knowledge of the weapon they are selling. Someone is going to have to explain why that baby is dead.

    Nobody would take the case as lawyers don't like to work for nothing. What don't you get about there being a law that prohibits such actions. :confused:
