Court tosses lawsuits against store in Texas church killing
The court on Friday threw out four lawsuits against Academy Sports and Outdoors that alleged a San Antonio-area store negligently sold the gun to Devin Kelley in 2016. Kelley killed more than two dozen people when he opened fire at the First Baptist Church of Sutherland Springs. The lawsuits said that Kelley provided store clerks with a Colorado ID, and the U.S. Gun Control Act required Academy to comply with Colorado gun laws before approving the purchase. But the court said the sale was legal because the federal law applies only to the sale of firearms, not components.wftv.com
