A Punished Straw Purchase
 
Unlike Chicago, New York, DC and other places, there are some areas that severly punish straw purchasers of firearms.

Nat,

Good Thread and justice was served in this case. Obviously he was making the straw purchases for profit. Unfortunately costing someone their life. And the sad thing is there may be additional victims in the future from this guy's actions!
Kind of like the OBAMA Administration's Fast and Furious criminal acts! They just found three more of those 1800 weapons this week that had been involved in serious crimes. And someone in the Government should be serving time the same as this guy, as we speak. This guy was no less or more guilty than some in our government.

The guy deserves every bit of it and more in my opinion.

Good on the judge.

therewolf 08-16-2013 07:02 PM

Hey, lookit that! YOU CAN punish criminals for committing

crimes! Well, waddaya know? THIS could become a trend.

Should we lavishly praise the judge, like a puppy who

FINALLY pooped on the newspaper?:mad:

This fellow got exactly what he deserved. A policeman lost his life as a direct result of this man's illegal gun sale. His attorney mentioned his troubled childhood. Every body has a trouble childhood.

Yeah, if they were supposed to let people go free

because of "troubled childhoods" I could get away

with killing more people than Hitler.

He sewed the wind and reaped the whirlwind. Justice in action.

What I find interesting is that many members here believe that the Constitution of the United States guarantees the rights of all Americans, without exception, to own firearms. As the Constitutions does not mention that certain groups can be proscribed from having guns. Under those circumstances, the seller would have done nothing wrong in selling to someone he suspected had a mental illness.

To me that presents a riddle. If some people can have firearms and some people can't have, then the whole issue is who decides the parameters of ownership.

I suppose that is why we have several levels of courts in our system of justice.

The founders were wise men.

Damn, aint that the truth. A buddy of mine used to say "everybody's family is f*cked up." Same difference.

Holder needs to be in jail.

I really think if you read the reasons for the 2nd Amendment or any other you could better understand the "Bill Of Rights". It seems the Liberals choose to ignore the Federalist Papers. Liberals are in the business of creating victims. Without new victims they are like Vampires recruiting through blood sucking. :eek:
