Odessa gun store is sued for allegedly selling weapon used by mentally ill woman in fatal shooting

The complaint says that in June 2012, Odessa Gun & Pawn sold a .45-caliber pistol to Colby Sue Weathers and that Weathers used the gun to fatally shoot her father. The store’s operators should have heeded a warning from the daughter’s mother not to sell a gun to a person in such an unsettled psychological state, says the Legal Action Project of the Brady Center to Prevent Gun Violence.
