New York (CNN) -- Undercover investigators purchased semiautomatic weapons at an Arizona gun show, despite telling vendors that they probably could not pass background checks, New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg told reporters Monday.
The man runs (one of) the most fouled up cities in the U.S.,yet still has time to pull this kind of stuff? He should think about the illegal gun trade in his own city, not the rest of the country.

I beleive that NYC has a higher homicide rate than Phoenix, AZ.

Anybody who sells a gun to someone telling them they can't pass a backgroud check is an idiot. :screwy: :roll: And has a better than even chance of winding up :jail:

If he is not purchasing from a FFL, is it considered a straw purchase?

The "investigators" were AZ PI's. They were sent to buy guns. Bloomy sent them. Thus bloomy sent people to buy guns for him. He is a resident of New York. He can not purchase a gun in another state. The guns were purchased in AZ. Thus, Bloomy had someone buy guns for him in another state.

Strawman. Illegal.

Seems MAYOR Bloomberg has the jurisdiction and budget to worry about another state. Too bad he can't keep teachers working in his own city.
Or snow plowed.

I'm having difficulties finding any laws that pertain to straw purchases in a private transaction scenario. The PI's were not buying from an FFL so no 4473 was involved. Help me out here. Thanks in advance....

Can a person from one state send someone in another state to buy a handgun for them?

I know it's a stretch. And perhaps my sarcasm hasn't really been conveyed here, but my stretch of the above law is equal to bloomberg stretching his interpretation of the "loophole".

In the videos the purchases were done through private sales.
Then there would be no check, I guess. So that is the point of it? Seems strange to have a NYer doing this. Prelude to a run for president?

Grunt-don't get me wrong- I'm right there with you on this one. Bloomberg is scary- hell, thanks to him and his crew New Yorker's can't even choose what fat to have their french fries fried in. I guess he is as frightened of trans fat as he is 'evil black guns'.
I'm just having problems finding any definitive law saying that a straw purchase from a private transaction is illegal.
The video was irritating as hell to me. Purely meant to scare the sheeple i.e. The PI's asking the seller for a gun with a lot of 'stopping power' and that his main concern was 'concealbility'
Arrgghh..

Oh,and yes-your sarcasm came through just fine....

I am not sure of the straw purchase part through private sales, but if "Good Ole Blooming Onion" (yeah that IS my "respectful" name for him) wants to buy a pistol, he needs to have it added to his NYS license by a NYS FFl and apporved by the judge. OTHERWISE he is buying it illegally. Wait, as he wants to run for POTUS, this is really an attention grab to better his"record" (unfortunately we cant see where he has been prosecuted so i dont mean that kind of record. yet.)
