    Straw Purchase Prison time

    Two Cameron County men are going to serve more than a year of prison after buying guns that were taken south of the border.

    U.S. Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms & Explosives (ATF) agents arrested Ismael Padilla and Miguel Angel Longoria in February and March.

    Court records show both men are American citizens but lived in Matamoros when they bought high-powered assault rifles in McAllen and Brownsville.

    Prosecutors allege both men lied on a federal form about where they lived when they bought the weapons.

    Longoria was accused of buying the gun for somebody in Mexico.

    The two men pleaded guilty to different federal gun charges in April.

    Padilla and Longoria appeared before U.S. District Court Judge Andrew S. Hanen on Monday morning.

    Judge Hanen sentenced both men to 18 months in federal prison to be followed by two years probation.

    Court records show Longoria was taken into immediate custody and must complete a GED and vocational training while in prison.

    Handed ordered Padilla to report to prison on August 27.

    ATF officials told Action 4 News in previous interviews that many guns that are “straw purchased” in similar Rio Grande Valley cases end up in the hands of Mexican drug traffickers.

    Both the United States and Mexico have pledged to curb weapons trafficking.
    Wow that there is really gonna be a huge deterrent for others who have been trafficking in illegal guns going to Mexico.Instead they complain about how easy it is to get a firearm here,but when they catch somebody actually smuggling an AR15 into Mexico they slap their wrist IMHO

    It may seem like a "slap on the wrist" to you but it sets the stage for long term confinement.

    You see, they are now convicted felons. That's right, out and out righteous badguys. The next time they are in possesion of a firearm it can get them ten years. How much do you want to bet that at least one of these fine upstanding individuals will at some point in the future be in possesion of a firearm?

    Now lets see, my Brother In Law is coming over to borrow my truck and he is a convicted felon. I will convieniently "forget" about the Glock in the glovebox. Let's say he gets stopped after he leaves my house. hehehehehe, BIL meet Mongo.

    I wonder what part of the 90% of the firearms going to Mexico they were?
    Lock 'em up for a long time, it's just a matter of time until they are back anyway.
