If your going to purchase a gun for someone you don't know, you might as well just hand them yours!

We're all in favor of reducing violent crime. It's just that pro-gunners have a method that is proven effective. Anti-gunners don't.

I've seen SO many attempted straw purchases go down and a couple that were successful and what's soooooo stupid about it is that most of the time the person doing the purchasing gets next to NOTHING out of it.
Often they are given cash for the amount of the gun only or maybe just an extra $10 or $20 for their trouble. It's also often girlfriends who are just too "in love" to know they are being used and badly. It's also often friends who think it's no big deal until their "friend" commits a felony with their feloniously purchased firearm and the purchaser gets an equal share in the felony ON TOP of a straw purchase charge. Straw Purchases are NEVER worth it for the prison term, the felony record and the fine.

He's probably safer in prison than on the streets, having admitted, and probably identified, his cross-border counter parties. They don't play as nicely.
"He went on two legs, wore clothes and was a human being, but nevertheless he was in reality a wolf of the Steppes. He had learned a good deal . . . and was a fairly clever fellow. What he had not learned, however, was this: to find contentment in himself and his own life. The cause of this apparently was that at the bottom of his heart he knew all the time (or thought he knew) that he was in reality not a man, but a wolf of the Steppes."
