Oh no, Mark won’t have a rifle to turn into the police anymore.

Store could have just come out and said he was making a straw purchase. He was. And so, violating the law.

Reading the letter from the gun shop, the conclusion I made was that they were avoiding a straw man purchase. It made clear that the reason for rejection was that the gun was destined for someone other than the person filling the 4473.

he was making a straw purchase...

Agreed. He was. And didn’t Bloomberg and his flying monkeys do the exact same thing a while back? AFAIK, that’s a serious FELONY...

Sad.

No, he wasn't making a straw purchase unless the cops asked him to buy it. You can buy a firearm with the intent to give it away so long as it's not to a person you know to be disqualified. The store should have just said "You don't believe in civil rights for others, therefore you get none yourself. We don't sell to liberal dickheads."

Will someone find a good legal definition of a “straw purchase.”

Normally it is meant that a “cutout” or “intermediate” is the buyer for someone else. Now, does it mean that if the buyer fills out forms indicating that the weapon is bought for himself/family, and he deliberately sells (leaving out “giving” for the moment) to someone else (who did not go through a background check), is he committing a crime?
