The Florida gun store that sold Nikolas Cruz the weapon he used to kill 17 people is getting attacked online by people blaming them for the massacre.

According to TMZ.com, Sunrise Tactical Supply, located in Coral Springs, Florida, sold Cruz the AR-15 a year ago.

Although authorities say the sale was completely legal, the public outrage against Sunrise has been brutal. Some commenters call the company “merchants of death,” and say it’s “complicit” in the Florida shooting because they sold the rifle to an 18-year-old “with mental problems.”

The owners of Sunrise Tactical Supply, Michael and Lisa Morrison closed the store which is located just a few miles from Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School. It will remain closed indefinitely.

  • You don’t need a permit or license to buy a gun, nor do you have to register a firearm.
  • You don’t need a permit to conceal carry a rifle or shotgun, although you do need it to conceal carry a handgun.
  • The state Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services must issue a concealed weapons license to an applicant as long as the person meets a certain set of requirements, including being a US citizen, being the age of 21 or older, not having a felony conviction and demonstrates competence with a firearm.
  • You can buy as many guns as you want at one time, because Florida doesn’t regulate that either.
  • Gun sellers don’t have to get a state license to sell firearms.

NOTE:  The state does require a three-day waiting period before you can buy a gun.
