West Milwaukee - On Tuesday, Adam Allen, owner of Badger Guns Inc. confirmed that he will finally surrender his gun merchant license by the end of the year. Allen admitted that the U.S. Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF) decided not to renew their license that expired last month. The ATF temperarily extended Badger's license until December 31st to allow Allen to sell the rest of his stock.
Badger Guns has been accused of selling guns used in criminal cases that were traced back to them. Milwaukee Police Chief Edward Flynn even alleged Allen and his employees of knownly selling guns in straw purchases, which a person buys a gun for another person. Allen and his employees have denied the allegations.
Several Milwaukee Police officers who were shot by guns purchased at Badger Guns filed a federal lawsuit claiming company employees knew that people were buying guns as straw purchases. Allen's attorney responded that the officers have no proof that employees at Badger's knew of any straw purchases and that employees followed federal laws in selling hand guns.
