OOPS! S/A Valles came back the next morning (Friday 7/29) and continued to testify.

S/A Valles agreed the 2005 edition for the FFRG was the book in force during 2010, and there is a section about the firearms transaction record (4473). The requirements include some guidance on due diligence by the seller, verification of the buyer’s ID, examination of the ID of the buyer, must be legally in the US.

On questioning Valles admitted Reeses reviewed a valid ID (Penny Torres) and even the false indentification (provided by the agents), and examined same.

The book also explains the difference between a straw purchaser, and a purchase that will be gifted to someone else. On page 166, the booklet explained what is a straw purchaser – another person buys for someone else because the actual purchaser is prohibited.

Valles stated the straw purchaser doesn’t have to be a prohibited person.

Mr. Gorence noted Mr. Roman held out he was not a felon, he wasn’t prohibited from purchasing, he hasn’t been adjudicated mentally incompetent and it wasn’t presented that Roman was a prohibited person. Agent Valles replied, the person doesn’t have to be prohibited.

Attorney Gorence stated to read the paragraphs on straw purchaser and gifts, and noted how difficult it is not know if something is a gift or a straw purchase. The person making the gift is the real purchase and signs as such. If Penny Torres purchased with an intent to give weapons to someone in the parking lot as a gift, it would highly subjective. The agent agreed, but stated, not when Roman told Reese he was paying for the weapons.
