Bloomberg Video - What Laws Were Broken?

Peter SuciuPeter Suciu Member Posts: 69 ✭✭
The media keeps saying that "an undercover sting by Mayor Michael Bloomberg's coalition against illegal guns revealed that gun dealers in Arizona are still selling high-powered semi-automatics to buyers who said they probably could not pass a background check."

Now first, "probably" wouldn't hold up in a court of law. But here is a link to the video:

Were any laws actually broken? The sellers of the Glock even note this is private sales and they asked for ID! The magazines aren't banned. But at the end the word, "assembled" is used. It sounds ominous as in something illegal was done. But I'm not seeing it. This was a private sale.

    If he does this in Michigan he will be breaking the law. In that state electronic surveillance is illegal without prior knowledge or specific court order. That is why radar detectors are legal and the basis for it.

    precisely the point they want to make it unlawful to sell a gun without it being registered by an FFL.

    Don't know about all of the Arizona Gun shows, but the one's that I have been to seem to all want proof of residency when selling private party. If out of state people are supposedly buying private party weapons they must be deceiving someone about being residents. Does the state of New York provide bogus id's to their investigator's?

    Lawyers make thier bread and board on this stuff...

    Attorney fees are not a problem for Bloomberg and the deep pocket anti gun movement.

    Supposedly, the "investigators" were all Arizona residents hired for the operation.
