Crown v. Raymond

In Crown v. Raymond, 159 Ariz. 87, 764 P.2d 1146 (App. 1988), a gun shop owner, in violation of state and federal law, sold a handgun to a seventeen-year-old minor, who used the gun to commit suicide. The Court found the violation of the gun statutes to be negligence per se and determined that, in the face of an existing duty to obey the gun laws, the harm to the minor was foreseeable.
