    Throw them over the border. Anybody feeding that craziness should be put right in the middle of it.
    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.

    +1 I don't see how anyone could be so stupid as to purchase, under their own name no less, a gun for someone else.

    Quintanilla admitted to agents that he had previously purchased nine AK-47 type weapons and four pistols for another person who was reportedly associated with a Mexican drug cartel.
    Well, he should get time off for good behavior for telling the Agents the truth. <sarcasm off> He got "Honesty" a bit late.

    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.

    I have purchased gift weapons for christmas or birthdays for close friends and family members, although I was 100% sure they could legally own the weapons as well.

    Buying a weapon as a gift is perfectly legal but if someone I do not know were to ask me to purchase a weapon for them that is an immediate red flag “Don’t do it”.
