I would be willing to bet in each state, where they put a limit on weapons purchases, that straw purchases have become the norm.
Guy sees two weapons he likes and just brings the old lady with him to purchase the other one.
Plus ever time they try to restrict legal purchases, it just drives the underground weapons market up.
Just like prohibition. People who would never think of taking a sip of the devils brew, just wanted all the more what they could not have.
On a radio talk show they asked G. Gordon Liddy if as a convicted felon it upset him he was not allowed to own weapons.
"Not really, I feel safe, my wife owns 30."
