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".

Isn't the problem dealers selling illegally?
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?
That would be great, he would be easy to defeat.
