Does straw purchasing even come into play with married couples?

BTW, straw purchasing is giving someone money to buy YOU a gun. I would think that giving someone a gift card to buy their own gun would be perfectly fine.

I don't suggest lighting up the room with a UV light. You might see more than you want.

I don't think it would matter. You can get a gift card for a sporting goods store and then the person could use it to buy whatever they want from that store. As long as they can legally own the firearm it shouldn't be a problem to use a gift card to purchase one...

Doesn't the 4473 form have a question about who is paying for the firearm?

http://www.atf.gov/files/forms/download/atf-f-4473-1.pdf

Edit never mind, the 4473 mentions raffle winners as OK, so I guess the gift card would be similar.

Technically the person purchased a gift card, not a firearm. The gift card could have been for anything in the store. The only question like that I remember was "are you purchasing the firearm for yourself or someone else." Didn't ask about who was paying for it.

Dunno, I'm not involved with the investigation. As far as I know, he wasn't armed. He was in his late 60s, early 70s. Assuming she was his age, I would assume she's not guilty, but not saying she couldn't do it. If she was 23, I might question the situation a bit more.

This actually happened to my son and I at a Sportsman's Warehouse. He wanted to buy me a gun, we went to the local Sportsman's, on selecting and discussing the gun and noting it was for me etc. (about a half hour discussion ) the paper work came out and I started answering the questions and the counter guy got all confused, he walked us up to the front of the store had my son purchase a gift card, then he gave me the card that I bought the gun with.
That is my newest gun a Marlin 925r ( it's ok but NOT the 81DL that it replaced)
