A woman in Baltimore was arrested for making an actual straw purchase.
In the court documents, Brzezenski admitted to signing the forms for the purchase of the Taurus but that her boyfriend selected the weapon and paid for it on his credit card.
The woman’s boyfriend is a drug dealer, hence why said straw purchase is illegal. It’s illegal to purchase a firearm for someone who would be prohibited from owning said firearm, that’s the very definition of a straw purchase.
Once again, it seems that actually enforcing the laws that are on the books seems to be a lot more effective than passing more laws.
