Judge Richard P. Matsch ordered the Phillips’ to pay the legal fees that the Lucky Gunner incurred, calling the lawsuit they brought against the company seeking to hold them accountable for the shooting a propaganda filled suit. The Brady Center argued that the way the company sells ammunition online without screening buyers is “unreasonably dangerous and create(s) a public nuisance”.

Judge Matsch saw right through to the true purpose of the lawsuit. The Brady Center was seeking to fulfill their own political agenda by propagandizing the public with bringing both parties to the Colorado court where James Holmes, the Aurora shooter, was prosecuted. He stated that their case lacked any clearly identifiable legal claim.

The Lucky Gunner is determined to recover the money awarded to them by the ruling. The plan on giving the money to gun rights groups, allowing their customers to choose which ones through a website survey.
