I don’t know about you, but it seems to be that just about everything here but New Hampshire’s gun laws were to be blame:
Markoff was able to get an affidavit of residency at the Nashua city clerkâ€™s office, using the driverâ€™s license with another manâ€™s name and photograph, the paper reports. Deputy City Clerk Patricia Piecuch told the Globe the city doesnâ€™t require people to provide evidence to prove their residency – the affidavit is signed under penalty of perjury – but the city has since modified its forms to state that the affidavits should be used as proof of residency only for motor vehicle registrations or driverâ€™s license applications.
And yet the mother of the murder victim in this case still says the gun store was negligent, and has been gathering information for a lawsuit. It should be noted that PLCAA does not specifically preempt negligence suits, though it’s hard for me to see how it would prevail, given the guy was sporting fake identity and a perjured residency affidavit. Sometimes I think there’s hardly anything more dangerous to freedom than other people’s misplaced grief.
