But did the dealer see it, did the dealer know anything other than the guy was helping the buyer to pick out a gun. If the two walked up to the dealer and said I'm buying a gun for my friend here who can not buy a gun and they have proof of this then the store is fully to blame too. If they do not have that then as I said it is pure assumptions based on nothing but emotions...

What do you do though?
There is a case here in Missouri where the mother called the dealer and provided her daughter's name a SSN# and begged them not to sell her daughter a gun claiming her daughter had mental issues. The dealer sold the daughter a gun anyhow because she passed all the checks. Daughter takes gun and kills her father with it.
Now mother is suing dealer.
What are they supposed to do? And how different is this case?

I think honestly this is crap. How is the Dealer supposed to know? There are many times, when a new gun owner will go into a store with an experienced one, to help coach him on his first purchase. That does not mean it is a straw purchase. I fail to see the evidence that this gun dealer was responsible. Your thoughts?
Prosecutors pointed out that in the last decade, the store has been among the worst in the nation for selling guns that would later be used in crimes, according to the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives.

In all of these threads the usual pathetic souls are crying "we don't need new laws..enforce what we have!!!..so WTF what should be done FFS. This store has a history.

Sounds like Aviation here in the US, small airplane crashes due to pilot error, family of pilot sues Aircraft manufacture. Over and over, GA (general aviation) becomes cost prohibitive for the general populace. Sounds like the cows are coming home for gun ownership.
