Guillermo and jessica Garcia filed a lawsuit against Walmart for not providing adequate security to prevent the attack that killed 22 people in el paso.
Guillermo has undergone multiple surgeries for his wounds and remains hospitalized.
Jessica has stated that her husband stood in front of her to block the shooters bullets.
Just let that one sink in a bit.
"The family's suit claims Walmart has a legal responsibility to protect its customers, but failed to do so because it did not employ security guards to patrol the store. The El Paso Walmart where the carnage occurred "does not appear to have had any armed guards for security, although a number of other Walmarts around the country do," the firm said."
Now for the record, I have been to a walmart in Flagstaff where there was an armed policeman inside the store. I'm sure that's not the only one out there.
Now with walmart banning sales of certain guns and ammunition in their stores, many used for personal security, and their statements about open carry in their stores I really think they might lose this case.
Any thoughts from the peanut gallery?
