Guns N’ Roses File Suit Against Texan Online Gun Store Over Name Similarities


Legendary hard rock outfit Guns N’ Roses have filed suit against an online Texan gun store named Texas Guns and Roses. The band’s camp filed suit against the firearms retailer over the similarities to their own registered trademarks.

The suit alleges the plaintiffs, identified as Jersey Village Florist, “elected and adopted defendant’s marks for the purpose of confusing consumers into believing that it was connected or associated with, or licensed by, GNR.”

The aforementioned storefront currently offers up a number of firearms and accessories, along with select rose-oriented floral arrangements. Per NBC. The band are seeking unspecified damages.

Attorney David L. Clark is representing the plaintiffs in the suit and commented:

“There’s never been any confusion [between the band and the website] and they have no evidence of confusion. This is an attempt to run up costs and burn us out. Our client sells metal safes for guns and flowers, and have a one-stop website and absolutely no one is confused. Nobody thinks we’re the band or there is some affiliation. We will be fighting back.”
