Catch a Charge

They pass a lotta gun control laws. Just to be a thorn in our side.

How do you even get found guilty of making a straw purchase? You'd have to leave an abnormal amount of evidence around. A wide swath. Bragging on video that your did it and posted it to facebook. Or doing it for a wired ATF informer.

No, the laws aren't passed to be enforced. Even with BAD bad guy baddies. Occasionally prosecute an otherwise innocent person that made an honest mistake with no mens rhea, and publicize THAT to make the rest of the decent folk in the country afraid of the government and to think "it's not worth it to own a gun."

An associate, not a close one was getting a pistol from an aunt.  An heirloom.  Wanted to know how he should get the pistol registered because: Maryland.  I told him not to bother.  As long as you don't confess to the whole thing how are they going to prove anything?  What if you bought it your ownself in another state?  There are SO many factors the DA has to prove after the unlikely event they 'catch' you with the pistol.   You aren't a criminal getting search warrants on your house every month, right?   You know not to incriminate yourself by flapping your gums to the po-po, right?  You can legally possess a gun now, correct?  Then don't worry about it. 

Then he told me it was a pre1895 Schofield.  I told him if true it isn't even a pistol.  It's an antique.  Even less reason to worry.

No, he's not supposed to keep it, or register it....he's supposed to send to me.
