Mark Kelly's (straw?) gun purchase canceled by store owner..should Kelly be charged with crime?
Did Mark Kelly (Gabby Gifford's astronaut husband) break the law by purchasing am AR 15 he planned to give to someone else?
It's called a Straw Purchase.
A while back an Austin, Texas gun dealer was sentenced to six months in a Federal Work Camp for selling....at a gun show....a weapon to an illegal who
had a Texas driver license.
The illegal who produced the necessary identification to legally purchase a handgun...said driver license....did not present himself as an illegal. He
had the driver license. That's all the illegal legally needed.
Then the illegal with the driver license gave the handgun to another illegal number two who did not have any legal Texas identification. Illegal
number two gave illegal number one the money to buy the handgun for him.
Nobody told the gun dealer any of this. He just sold the handgun to a someone who had the necessary forms of identification......and illegals aren't
on any background check registry, anyway. They could be serial killers back in their natal country, for all anyone would know.
But the story gets weirder. The gun dealer got six months in a Federal Work Camp. Illegal number one with the driver license got nothing for straw
buying a weapon for illegal number two with no identification. AND....illegal number two got nothing.
Only the Austin gun dealer got jail time.
So, now we come to Mark Kelly buying an AR 15 in a Tucson gun shop. Then Mark Kelly said he wasn't keeping the AR.
Was Mark Kelly trying to get the gun store owner thrown into jail? Did Mark Kelly try to get the gun store owner jailed by breaking the law by straw
purchasing the AR for someone else?
Well, whatever. The gun store owner returned Mark Kelly's money via a registered letter, cancelling the sale.
You just can't be too cautious with these gun grabbing nuts...can you? Cause only those who are obeying the law are punished anymore in America.
