CNN Story Update
SayUncle reports that the BATFE is aware of CNN’s violation of the law:
Thanks to a reader, I have copies of emails from an ATF agent who was forwarded the CNN transcript. The email from the ATF agent says:
I have forwarded this to the Houston office. There is no straw purchase since the transaction does not involve a licensed dealer. However the owner did sell a firearm to a non-resident of Texas which is a violation of 18 U.S.C. 922(a)(5).
Keep up the cards & letters, folks! “Perfectly legal” my aching ass.
UPDATE: Posse Incitatus comments.
