The case is built around the idea that Badger guns knew that the person they are selling the gun to was not  buying the gun for himself. However the teenage boy that accompanied him and help pick out the gun.

This story has elements like human interest and is also related to a hot topic, gun control. Both of these news values are pretty good ways to pull in a reader.
