Milwaukee police officers’ case may set precedent for gun law

A court trial that could possibly set a precedent for a gun law continued last Tuesday, October 6 in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. The case involves an incident where two policemen – Bryan Norberg and Graham Kunisch – were shot while performing their duties. Law enforcement agents are suing Badger Guns, the gun store where the perpetrators who shot the officers bought their weapons.

In the lawsuit, Norberg and Kunisch are alleging that the owners of Badger Guns were negligent in the selling of the weapon that the then 18-year-old Julius Burton used in the 2009 shooting that left Norberg with major injuries and Kunisch with a lost eye and frontal lobe.
