A Connecticut shop that sold a gun to the Newtown school shooter's mother has lost its federal firearms license.
The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives revoked the license of Riverview Gun Sales in East Windsor, about 15 miles north of Hartford, on December 20, and the 60-day time frame to appeal has expired.
The agency didn't disclose why it revoked the license.
'It's been revoked. It's final at this point,' is all ATF spokeswoman Deb Seifert would tell reporters. Lanza
Adam Lanza may have used a gun purchased from the store on his killing spree
It was first reported Thursday by The Journal News of White Plains, N.Y.
Authorities raided the store for undisclosed reasons shortly after the December 14 school shootings left 26 dead. Around the same time, a man was arrested for stealing a rifle from the shop.

Has the line been crossed yet? Or are we moving it back again?
Nothing to see here. Nothing political. Move along.
IIRC the gun was legally purchased. Haven’t read or heard any news otherwise.
But the DA the prevented Lanza’s Mom from institutionalizing him is still a rising star in The Party.

NY Post article on this subject:
I hope they are persecuting the car dealership that sold him the automobile he used to drive there with equal fervor.
New and used car dealerships in Unconnectedcut better watch out. They’re next. Somebody commits a crime driving one of your vehicles and your dealer license is toast. Just asked little Debbie Siefert. No explanation required. The kids are running this chicken coop now!
The following is some info I posted to that thread.
For what it's worth department and that may not be much. But it appears the store has some problems keeping track of it's merchandise if the following account is any indication.
From the Hartford Courant:
On Saturday, a South Windsor man who had received a suspended prison sentence and two years probation in May for stealing a dozen rifles and shotguns from Riverview Sales tried to steal a sniper rifle from the same store, police said.
Jordan Marsh, 26, pleaded guilty May 10 to a single count of stealing a firearm and received a suspended prison sentence and two years of probation. He initially faced 12 counts of stealing a firearm and other larceny charges.
According to East Windsor police, on Saturday, Marsh grabbed a Bushmaster .50-caliber rifle from Riverview Sales valued at $5,000 and ran from the store. When store employees confronted Marsh, he pulled a knife, then fled on foot. Police officers eventually caught and arrested him.
“Police said Riverview Gun Sales had no idea the AR-15 Marsh stole was missing. Management at the store didn’t know about 11 guns that Marsh had allegedly stolen last year until they were notified by detectives,” WFSB-TV reports.
Riverview Gun Sales has had inventory issues in the past. State police raided a Connecticut home in 2007 and reportedly found a number of stolen firearms belonging to the store.
East Windsor police Detective Matthew Carl previously told WFSB-TV that at one point, the “Riverview gun store was missing upwards of 30 plus guns.”
Damn good point. He lived about 7 miles from the school. Without a car, the shooting would never have occurred. (This has degenerated into such political theater it makes me sick. The only thing more nauseating is the unquestioning, obsequious, ass kissing attitude of the MSM.)
Pure, unadulterated bullsh*t. With no prior reasons to stop a sale, this is crap. Some bureaucrat is in CYA/Political Correctness mode and will not be challenged. Absolute bullsh*t.
Let’s yank away Buckwheat’s presidency for selling guns to Mexico that killed dozens of Mexican teenagers at a high school.
“A Connecticut shop that sold a gun to the Newtown school shooter’s mother has lost its federal firearms license”
What was their justification?
