Nevada gun dealer who sold AK-47 to Gilroy Garlic Festival shooter: Facing up to 50 lawsuits from victims

The gun dealer who sold a WASR-10 to the man who killed three people at the Gilroy Garlic Festival in California last month says he’s facing approximately 15 lawsuits, and a GoFundMe page aims to raise $10,000 to help with legal costs.

Investigators believe 19-year-old Santino William Legan used a Romanian variant of the AK-47, selling for about $700 at Big Mike’s Guns and Ammo in Fallon, Nevada, where he picked up the weapon.

Now the owner of the store is preparing financially as he predicts those blaming him will seek damages and believes he could receive as many as 50 legal complaints.

‘We hope we don’t need the funds and would love to return it or donate it,’ Michael Christopherson wrote in an amended post on the Big Mike’s G&A Facebook page.
