Play stupid games, win stupid prizes

A man who thinks anyone should be able to buy a gun posts a video on youtube saying he’ll buy guns for you for a price. Well, the ATF was not amused:

9Wants to Know learned ATF agents conducted an undercover buy with Francis, who bought guns at two sporting goods stores in the Denver area last month.

Court records show Francis has been indicted for making a false statement to a firearms dealer and for unlawful disposition of a firearm.

    So you’re saying that a fed got “busted” by some other feds?

    But the ATF keeps saying that they can’t prosecute straw purchases.

    Was the false statement to a gun dealer saying the gun was for himself, on the Form 4473?

    Because if so, this demonstrates that people actually can be prosecuted for illegally trying to buy a gun, and ATF needs to start charging and prosecuting those felons who try to buy guns from FFLs, but are stopped by the failure of the background check. You know, the millions of refusals per year, as the Brady group maintains.

    ATF prosecute felons? But that means that they would have to arrest actual felons. And that’s scary and icky.
