Bushmaster feeds the alligators

FOX News reported that Bushmaster and the store where the rifle was purchased have paid a combined $2.5 million to settle lawsuits by the families of Muhammad and Malvo's victims, with $500 thousand coming from Bushmaster and $2 million from the store. I don't know the merit of the claim against the store (i.e., was Muhammad a prohibited person who they should not have delivered a firearm to), but Bushmaster should have fought this one. Even if litigation costs would have exceeded $500,000, paying off that much indicates that they are an easy mark for these ridiculous suits in the future.

More to come on this later.
