I can understand "give and take" in negotiations. The Democrats got some support on "Straw purchases" http://news.yahoo.com/senate-panel-backs-crackdown-clandestine-gun-sales-010612683.html But for some reason, I think this was kind of like giving a bottle to a baby. "Shut the kid up" and we get some peace. "Title 18, United States Code, Section 1001 makes it a crime to: 1) knowingly and willfully; 2) make any materially false, fictitious or fraudulent statement or representation; 3) in any matter within the jurisdiction of the executive, legislative or judicial branch of the United States. Your lie does not even have to be made directly to an employee of the national government as long as it is "within the jurisdiction" of the ever expanding federal bureaucracy. Though the falsehood must be "material" this requirement is met if the statement has the "natural tendency to influence or [is] capable of influencing, the decision of the decisionmaking body to which it is addressed." United States v. Gaudin , 515 U.S. 506, 510 (1995). " (source: http://corporate.findlaw.com/litiga...il-under-18-u-s-c-section-1001-for-lying.html ) So when completing the 4473 and you lie that you are the actual buyer, you commited a felony. So what are the Democrats giving the legal gun owners for this "victory" they received?
