See [url]http://battlerifles.com/[/url] for a news link. Unfortunately the link is broken. The story supposedly appeared in the NY Daily News, but I can find no reference to it at their site. Wouldn't this be a hoot if it were true.

Has anyone notified the BATF about this straw purchase. I mean we'd only be doing our civic duty to keep the streets free of illegally purchased firearms. You know, with the easy availability of firearms and the proliferation of firearms ownership among children it would be the right thing to do according to Sarah.

You know, this means she lied on the 4473. It's a straw purchase, plain and simple. But, because she's one of them, she won't even be questioned, much less jailed unless we raise a big howl. Even then, it's going to take a lot.

Correct me if I'm wrong, guys, but what she did was not a straw purchase. Once I buy a firearm, am I not free to give or sell it to another individual so long as I do not suspect him/her to be a felon, etc? She bought a gun for her kid, which many of us have done ourselves.

Well according to what Osprey posted
The book suggests that she did not have her son checked, as required by Delaware state law.

That is not true in Delaware

It's going to take those with knowledge of Maryland firearms laws to figure out if there has been a crime committed. What should be the screaming outrage here is that Mrs. "do-it-for-the-children-and-ban-guns" Brady went out and bought her child a .30-06 (with a scope no less). The gun-grabbers use the terms "deer rifle" or "military sniper weapon with cop-killer bullets" to describe the same weapon, depending on what suits them at the time. (Funny it was a "deer rifle) in this case, hmmm? This should be the focus: [b]Sarah Brady bought her son a gun.[/b] You'd have to be deaf, blind and have your head 6 feet up your A$$ not see the steaming pile of hypocrisy surrounding that FACT. This is something that can't be twisted or spun by the media or HCI/Million Morons or whatever they call themseves this week. An the NRA just sealed it's fate with me as well. "Interesting"... "INTERESTING". It's the biggest page 1 headline opportunity to take an OFFENSIVE position with these bastards and the largest representative of gun owners wimps out. Utter and complete bullshit!

I don't really think that could be considered a straw purchase since it is a gift for a person that could otherwise legally purchase the firearm for themself. However, it sounds like there is a good chance that she broke the state law. In order to show that the law is unbiased this should be persued to the fullest extent by the state. Then again, it may be in her best interest to go to prison anyway since many states are no longer allowing smoking in prison. [:)]

shotar: Nice point about the "sporting gun" angle. Hmmm... I wonder if hunts with it? Could sic PETA on their arse [}:D] After giving it some thought (dangerous, I know) I can see the "sporting vs. deranged killer handgun/SUR" distinction being used as justification/rationalization for the purchase. I'd really like to know how old the son is and to get his views. Is he a "I just want my deer rifle" type or did ownership of his first firearm open the door to more critical thinking on the whole subject?

[url]www.miami.com/mld/miami/news/politics/2909641.htm[/url] The question that needs to be answered is does her son live with her? If so the purchase is probably legal. If he doesn't live with her its a straw and sarah should be punished to the fullest extent of the law. I have bought my daughter 2 firearms. Both .22's. Only difference is she lives with me. Its her's but it stays locked up in my safe until she's old enough by law to have it. This is gonna be interesting. Rick

My question is why did she buy a gun for her son? And is a 4473, a public document?, I believe it is. Waterdog
Link Posted: 3/22/2002 6:27:05 PM EDT
It doesn't matter how old her kid is or if he lives with her. In Deleware, apparently it's illegal to purchase a gun for somebody in any circumstance. In that Miami article they specificly say that family gifts are illegal too. mmmmm....hypocrisy tastes like chicken.
