YOU are the weapon, your firearm is just a tool!
The BUYER of the gun should be jailed for Accessory to Murder. The JUDGE should be removed from the Bench.

The judge should be removed from the bench and charged with a crime. Accidents happen everyday in correctional institutions.
Perhaps the straw purchaser will fall into the garbage grinder. Karma can be a pain in the watoosie.
I'm just a spoke in the wheel but not a big deal.
America...a Constitutional Republic. NOT a democracy as the liberals would have us believe.

As someone who is a Strict Constitutionalist, I would not have found her guilty of any crime. There is nothing in the 2nd Amendment that say that we cannot buy firearms for other people. Many of us are old enough to remember a time before that particular unconstitutional regulation was put into effect. At some point, you have to take a stand and I choose to do it at the TOP of the slippery slope instead of somewhere down from there. Is it too difficult to conceive that perhaps the Founding Fathers knew what they were saying and SAID WHAT THEY MEANT when they said, "SHALL NOT BE INFRINGED"?
I have been gone for a while and recently came back here. Starting to wonder why........
"Clearly that's a YOU problem not a ME problem."
As for your hammer analogy, the neighbor who loans the hammer has no INTENT to break the law. The woman who goes into a gun shop and fills out a carefully worded Form 4473 certainly does. Your analogy is intellectually lacking. As for not wanting to live in such a country, I have an easy solution for you....GET OUT! There are planes leaving every hour. Get on one.
This trash belongs in a prison cell for just as long as the mandated sentencing guidelines would allow.
Obviously from your post, you are well down that slippery slope. Apparently you think that just because something is "the law", it makes it "right". Well, that's not the case and sometimes we have to stand up to it and say when it is wrong. Some of us are old enough to remember a time before GCA68. Apparently you are either too young to remember that or you have just grown complacent with having your rights slowly nibbled away by the leftists.
The only criminal here was the guy who shot the cop. He is solely responsible for his actions and trying to spread the blame does no good.
I tend to have a rather absolute take on the 2nd Amendment.
I hear the read judge coming.

In OK she could have been charged with murder.The BUYER of the gun should be jailed for Accessory to Murder.
Thankfully for law enforcement officers and society in general; you don't get to decide what is "Constitutional" and what is not. The US courts get to do that. This has nothing to do with the US Constitution. That crazy woman knowingly bought a gun for a violent convicted felon and member of a vicious gang. She is guilty of accessory to murder, at the least. The judge should be thrown off the bench.As someone who is a Strict Constitutionalist, I would not have found her guilty of any crime.
i'm glad law enforcement ended that scumbags life of crime. That particular criminal died in a trash filled ditch beside the highway, how fitting.
The bleeding heart judge claimed the prosecution failed to show that the dingbat knew the violent convicted criminal would use the gun to commit violence. Yeah, right.
Woman Sentenced in Prison's Director Slaying Case - ABC News
. It was a STRAW purchase. From a FFL and Federal Law point of view, the BUYER violated Question #1 on the 4473 "Are YOU the actual buyer of the firearm" With this SHE broke a Federal law, making her an accessory to the Crime.
Soooo... ....If I asked you to buy a gun for me, you'll do it? knowing it's for me whether I can LEGALLY OWN it....(not a Felon/Nutcase, etc etc) AND then hand it over to me? I DON'T think so my friend.
