Ammo For Sale

A judge has ruled that Bloomberg’s agents did not violate the law because the alleged transfers did not happen:

U.S. Magistrate Judge Cheryl Pollak said Friday the court had found “that the city’s actions do not constitute a crime or fraud” because an actual straw sale never happened. In the purchases made by the city’s investigators, the buyers did not hand over the guns later.

That also, of course, means that no gun dealer involved broke the law.

    It isn’t against the law to sell guns to people who pretend to be straw buyers?

  2. _Jon Says:

    What they did – technically – was “Conspiracy to commit fraud in a criminal act”. Technically, that’s a felony.

    But, technically, if you have enough money and power, it becomes a ‘Technicality’.

    I thought the law also covered an attempt to purchase.

  4. Jim W Says:

    A magistrate is low on the totem pole. This will be appealed, I’m guessing.

Remember, I do this to entertain me, not you.
