    Ugly: Police official sold gun to felon, lied to Feds.

    http://m.stltoday.com/STL/db_109121/...tguid=GNagtcSq

    Apologies, the link to the story is the mobile site of the St. Louis Post Dispatch.

    Former assistant Chief of Police in Centerville IL. knowingly sold a .45 Hi-Point to a convicted Sex-Offender (Felon) and was caught by a federal sting operation.

    Adding to the "ugliness", he "acquired" said pistol while performing his duties as a police officer.

    He finally confessed when they (Feds) confronted him with audio tapes of the sale, and detailed the sting operation.

    Ugly is right. Clearly the crooked cop would have conducted a background check on the guy he already knew to be a felon if that "common sense" legislation had gone through

    One less crooked cop on the street. That looks bad for all the good cops even though they aren't doing anything wrong.

    I'm still trying to understand how these excellent gun laws that we have now failed to prevent this sale. I mean, it's illegal to sell guns to a felon. This should've prevented the Asst Chief from selling it, right?!

    So much for "common sense".

    Dang ... where's a good "background check" law when you need one?
    Asked by a CNN reporter "What do you feel when you shoot a terrorist"?, the Marine sniper simply shrugged & replied "recoil".

    I see now...that's how universal background checks would work to stop crime.

    Oh wait a minute, we're talking about criminals, they don't follow the rules.

    I wonder how crooked he had to get before becoming part of a sting operation.
