The allegations came to light on Friday after Lucas, who passed a background check at a local gun shop before taking possession of the AR-15, told the Washington Post that he and his wife then “drove it to the home of a parishioner, a ‘responsible gun owner,’ Lucas said, who offered to keep the rifle locked up in a gun safe until the pastor is ready to destroy it.â€

For that transfer of possession to be legal under Oregon law, the Christ Church Episcopal parishioner should have undergone a background check at a licensed gun dealer while Lucas was present. If that did not happen, Lucas may have committed a Class A misdemeanor, which is punishable by a fine of up to $6,250 and as much as a year in jail.

So, the pastor won a gun in a raffle and took possession of it in order to destroy his prize? Sounds like a real anti-gun winner there (pun intended).

If he wants to play political propaganda games with this stunt, then I won't shed a tear when he is charged with illegally transferring a gun to someone. Lock him up!

Nor I, but it will never happen. Violation of the law that advance the states control are never punished.
