A gun shop in
ATF agents raided the Riverview Gun Sales shop a few days after the Dec. 14
The ATF revoked the federal firearms license of owner David LaGuercia six days after the shootings, even though officials have acknowledged that the Bushmaster that Lanza used was purchased legally. LaGuercia had 60 days to appeal the license revocation but that has now expired, ATF spokesman Deb Seifert said.
LaGuercia could not be reached for comment Thursday but an employee who answered the phone said the shop is still open. The store still can sell ammunition as well as gun accessories.
While the federal investigation did not involve the gun purchase by Nancy Lanza, it started after investigators reviewed the records of that gun sale. Sources have said during that review investigators uncovered other evidence that led to the revocation of the firearms license.
The gun shop is familiar to law enforcement authorities.
