` good evening. `with gun control front and `center at last night's `democratic presidential debate, `it's clear there's no issue more `pressing for many americans. `tonight we're taking a close `look at two controversial cases `that could have major `implications. `the first starting with the `legal gun sale that led to `life-changing consequences for `two police officers. `they were cops shot in the line `of duty. `>> when did you realize that you `didn't have a left eye? `>> i felt a lump in my cheek. `and i'd asked someone if that `was my eye. `>> reporter: the mental damage `perhaps even more severe. `>> felt like i didn't deserve to `live anymore. `and actually considered `committing suicide. `>> reporter: and for a brief `moment, their crusade for `justice as the unlikely center `of the gun control movement `raging across the country. `>> ryan norberg, graham coonish, `versus badger guns, inc.
12:41 am
`a gun store be liable for `legally selling a gun later used `to commit a crime? `you're watching the security `camera. `the man jacob collins is buying `the gun for julius burton, who `at the time was 18 and too young `to buy a handgun. `>> they're what are called straw `purchases meaning where one `person is buying it for somebody `else. `>> reporter: it's a common way `guns make their way into the `underground market. `a month later, burden gets into `milwaukee police officers. `caught here on tape. `he uses the gun to shoot them `both in the head. `for years laws have hinders `victims of gun crimes from suing `gun dealers. `>> what made this case `different, there was a lot of `evidence that the guy at the gun `shop should have known this `wasn't a legitimate purchase. `>> reporter: miraculously, they `both survived. `brian norberg and graham coonich `sue the gun dealer badger guns
12:42 am
`for nenlgth, claiming the store `clerk should have recognized the `telltale signs of a straw `purchase. `>> badger guns did not do the `job it was required to do when `it made that sale. `if badger guns had done its job `on may 2nd then brian and graham `would not have been shot on june `9th. `>> reporter: the lawsuit claimed `badger guns approved the sale `despite a number of `irregularities, including `collins checking the "no" box `when answering if he was the `buyer, then crossing it out and `checking "yes." `confusion. `>> he did have trouble with the `>> reporter: but lawyers for the `gun store argued there was no `intent to do wrong. `>> to believe this you have to `believe that my clients cooked `up a plan, a plan to unlawfully `sell firearms. `>> reporter: and the store clerk `denied that was his intention. `>> the last thing we want to do `is put a gun in somebody's hands `that has -- that's going to
12:43 am
`commit a crime, that's going to `use it for the wrong purpose. `>> the gun collins purchased for `you at badger guns was the gun `that you used to shoot officers `norberg and coonich, is that `right? `>> as i remember, yeah. `>> reporter: after deliberating `for nine hours, the jury found `the gun store had been `negligent. `>> was such negligence of badger `guns a cause of the injuries? `the jury answered this question, `yes. `>> reporter: brett heaton juarez `was the jury federal. `>> the strongest piece of `evidence for me was the `testimony from the owners and `sales clerk that they didn't `have policies and procedures. `by law they were required to `didn't. `>> reporter: experts say this `case was unusually strong for `the plaintiff. `in part because this was not the `first time badger had sold a `weapon used in the commission of `a crime. `milwaukee authorities say that `between 2006 and 2009, more than
12:44 am
`1,800 firearms from badger guns `were used in crimes. `>> got a store with a bad track `record, you got victims who are `police officers, and you have a `phony sale. `all three of those things come `together. `if that can't win, nothing will `win. `>> reporter: milwaukee's mayor `was quick to say other dealers `need to take notice. `>> they have a responsibility to `make sure that individuals who `cannot legally possess guns do `not get their hands on guns. `>> reporter: but it remains to `be seen whether this case will `actually set new precedent. `>> those who are looking for `fundamental change where victims `of gun violence are going to win `lawsuits against gun shops and `manufacturers shouldn't count on `this case. `think would still need a `fundamental change in the law, `which i don't think is happening `any time soon. `>> reporter: the verdict `announced yesterday touted as a `major victory by advocates for `gun reform is far from a final `victory. `badger lawyers are expected to `appeal.
12:45 am
`and the battle over gun safety `continues to be front and center `in the national conversation. `>> i'm a big second amendment `person, believe me, the biggest. `>> reporter: from campaign stops `around the country -- `>> if you go someplace where `people can shoot you, you're `probably going to get shot. `>> reporter: to last night's `democratic debate in las `vegas -- `>> we have to look at the fact `that we lose 90 people a day `from gun violence. `>> reporter: here, gun violence `took a back seat to this issue `of liability. `>> sandy and lonny phillips are `here from colorado. `>> reporter: martin o'mally `introducing a couple who took on `that fight head-on and lost. `>> they were slapped with `$200,000 in court fees because `of the way that the nra gets its `way in our congress and we take `a back seat. `>> from the moment we got the `news, our lives turned upside `down. `and they've never righted. `norm. `>> reporter: sandy and lonny `phillips lost their 24-year-old `daughter jessica when james `holmes unleashed a hail of
12:46 am
`bullets in a darkened movie `theater in aurora, colorado in `2012. `>> they left a five-inch hole in `my daughter's face. `a five-inch hole. `that was one of six wounds to my `daughter. `that's what these bullets do to `human flesh. `>> reporter: last year the `phillips sued the companies that `supplied holmes with his deadly `ammunition and protective body `armor. `>> it should bother everyone in `our country that somebody, `anybody, can go online and buy `4,000 rounds of steel-jacketed `ammo without any i.d., without `any background check. `>> reporter: but a judge in `denver not only dismissed their `case, but made them responsible `for covering the online gun `dealer's legal fees. `>> the judge thought that it was `more of a political lawsuit than `it was a public health and `safety lawsuit. `and we're left to -- with that `burden.
12:47 am
`financial future is uncertain. `but their mission couldn't be `clearer. `emboldened to fight on by the `verdict in milwaukee, and the `fact that at the address where `badger guns and ammo once stood `now sits another gun store, brew `city shooters supply, still open `for business, still selling `guns. ` next, clair dance and mandy `patenkin take us inside `"homeland." `secrets of the new season. ` plus new details about what `may have landed former l.a. `lakers star lamar odom in the `hospital clinging to life `tonight. it takes a lot of work...@ to run this business. @but i really love it. i'm on the move@all day long... and sometimes, i just don't@ eat the way i should. so i drink boost to get the@nutrition that i'm missing. boost ncomplete nutritional drink has 26 essential vitaminsr and minerals, including calcium and vitamin@ d to support strong bones and 10 grams of proteinnto help maintain muscle. all with ar great taste. i don't plan on slowing downt any time soon. stay strong.r stay active with boost

12:56 am
`people learn from "homeland." `i hope there's something being `taught about when we don't `listen, what happens. `about when we act on our own `arrogance and thinking that `we're right, what happens. `people make mistakes. ` fathers mothers ` people make mistakes holding `to their own thinking they're `alone ` honor their mistakes everybody `makes `>> reporter: this song from `"into the woods" points out that `even mythical heroes can have `flaws. `>> you killed my son. `in beirut. `>> reporter: like solve and `carrie on "homeland." `>> are we inhuman to human `beings? `we, the united states, `represented by carrie matheson, `solve berensen, are we the `enemies? `who's the enemy? `>> reporter: man's inhumanity to `man is highlighted in the new `season's location, berlin. `>> data breach.
