I'm not wanting to let her off the hook, but I don't think that anybody should be prosecuted for this. I don't believe in background checks, forms, or permission slips, for me, for you, or for Sarah Brady. It's not consistent for me to fuss about an NRA member that might ignorantly or innoccently make the same mistake and then get all upset over Brady's hypocracy. But we can disagree on that.

As far as prosecuting Brady for violating state laws, I'd have to say that I'm against that only because I think that the law is wrong. I have a hard time pushing for prosecutions with which I disagree. For me it's just a matter of consistency. But just the same, she deserves all the crap that can be tossed her way for being an enemy of the Constitution.

Eagle Eye, in other circumstances (if this were Joe Blow on the street), this evil bitch and her ilk would be screaming for prosecution. In fact, given that the crime was committed in 2000, the BATFags would probably have already broken down his door and hauled him off to the hosegow (if they didn't shoot him first), and there would not have been word one in the papers about it. And to those who say "no Federal law was broken", I would remind everyone that it is only a "legal transaction" under Federal law as long as it is also in compliance with State and local laws. There is a Federal violation here because the transaction violated State law.

That being said, I have to disagree with you on prosecution in this case BECAUSE this evil bitch is largely responsible for the law in the first place. I too disagree with the law, because it is a CLEAR VIOLATION of Amendment 2 to the Constitution. But if this evil bitch is allowed to skate because of who she is, then IMO it is way past time to use the 2nd for its intended purpose.

Molon Labe!!

Trust me, I understand your point. I'm probably unique in my view. Oh well.

IMO, if a law is unconstitutional, then prosecuting anyone, even if we hate really, really, really disapprove of her, is wrong.

Additional presecutions of an unjust law are not right, even if temporarily satisfying.

Laws are for the peasants to obey. They don't apply to the elites.

I respect your right to your opinion and would agree with you 100% if she was a victim of this unconstitutional law of someone else's design/making. She drafted it, she pushed it, she shoved it down our throats . One set of standards for her and one for what she considers bottom feeders ???? I don't frigging think so........

She wanted this unconstitutional law and she broke this unconstitutional law....

Ms Potato Head is her own victim and justly so IMHO.

Stay Safe !

MO, if a law is unconstitutional, then prosecuting anyone, even if we hate really, really, really disapprove of her, is wrong.

Well, maybe if she is prosecuted for the unconstitutional law, she can fight it all the way to the SCOTUS and get it struck down.

People should always clean up their own messes.

I hate to rain on everyones parade but this was a legal purchase.

And if you read two posts down, you'd know I tipped my hat to Eugene Tackleberry for picking up on the "straw purchase gun runner loophole". You're not raining on my parade, in fact I mentioned that I believed there was an exemption for gift purchases to a non-prohibited family member in one of my posts.

There is, however, some debate about Delaware law and whether she might have been in technical violation of state statutes.

Don't forget liberal's actions don't matter. Only their intentions.

I say we make her an honorary freeper and give her the screenname Strawman purchaser.

Just like Jeb Bush in Florida and his daughters. All three have been arrested. One on a felony that the sentencing guidelines call for jail time. His wife was caught smuggling over $18,000.00 of undeclared merchandise into the U.S. by customs but no charges were brought. Seems that the law applies only to the powerless, and the powerful like to make a point of applying it to us harshly and to themselves not at all. And this is not solely a Republican sin, but a Democratic one also. Jeb is just an easy target because his hypocrisy is so evident.

HA! That would be delicious. Sara Brady getting prosecuted for violating an unconstitutional law, fights that law to the Supreme Court and ends up getting her husband's namesake law tossed. Too, too ironic.

I like it.

That's my point exactly!

Either we enforce uncontitutional rules on her, and give them legitimacy, or we make her live by the Constitution.

Insisting that the unjust law gets enforced doesn't do anything to change that law.

Remove the laws, don't prosecute more because of them.

I have a feeling that Sarah will pay a price for this in one way or another.

The beginning of the article says her son's name is "James" but later on the article refers to him as "Scott". Weird.

Sarah Brady, that infinitely and hopelessly stupid woman, is apparently still laboring under the delusion that some animals are more equal than others...

When you are 100% correct,it is not a delusion. While you or I would undoubtely have to spend thousands of dollars on lawyer fees in a vain attempt to keep from serving time and becoming a convicted felon,absolutly nothing will happen to either her or her son. No fine,nothing.

I'd say she understand the system she is championing perfectly.

BTW,I'd also like to know if Deleware has a firearms owner identification card system going,and if he son possesses one of these cards? If not,he is comitting a felony just by simple possession of the firearm. Not holding my breath waiting for THIS arrest or reports of the BATF kicking in THEIR doors in a pre-dawn raid,either.

E-mails to the Department of Justice, including the Attorney General, John Ashcroft may be sent to:

One thing about it,nobody can ever accuse you of not being optomistic! If you send Ashcroft a e-mail,tell him she was topless while making the straw purchase. THAT might get his interest.

So how does one get the Delaware Dept. of Justice to prosecute this felon, Brady?

The correct answer to this question is "You can't.".

She made it up and is too dumb to know that she would have broken the law

What makes you think she made it (the Brady Law) up? She is just a "spokesmodel",who parrots the words put before her for a fee.I doubt she had given 5 minutes thought to anything,other that where to cash the check.

Thanks for the ping.

Brady writes in "A Good Fight" that the unnamed gun shop ran federal Brady Law and Delaware state background checks with great fanfare.

...

"(W)hen the owner called in the checks, it seemed to me he spoke unnecessarily loudly, repeating and spelling my name over and over on the phone," Brady writes.

Pretty d*mn funny!

The Site has changed the article to this now.. FYI..

Posted on Thu, Mar. 21, 2002
Correction

A New York Daily News story incorrectly reported that gun control advocate Sarah Brady may have skirted Delaware's gun laws when she bought a rifle for her adult son but did not declare who was going to own the weapon.

The Delaware Department of Justice initially insisted to the Daily News that gun purchasers must declare who the weapon was intended for so that person's background could be checked.

On Friday, a spokeswoman for the Delaware Department of Justice said it misinterpreted the law and Brady was not obligated to state that the gun was for her son as long as he was legally qualified to own a gun.

In addition, a spokesman for Brady said, "Sarah Brady told the gun store that the gun was for her son and filled out the forms that they asked her to fill out."
