Let's flesh this one out a bit, what do you say? Being a convicted felon and wanting a gun because under the protection of the 2nd Amendment it is his god-given right, Eddie Lee Carr sent his live-in girlfriend Laqinda Modique, to buy a gun.
Now, Laqinda, not being the type to do things by the book, went to her co-worker who, somehow had never sustained a felony conviction and owned a bunch of guns. She bought one from him in a perfectly legal private transaction.Investigators determined Modique had recently purchased the firearm, and Carr had removed it from a safe this morning, loaded it, and placed it in a drawer in the bedroom.
The rest, as they say, is history.
The moral of the story is all guns start out legally owned by someone, including the countless weapons in the hands of criminals today. Those legal gun owners obviously need help in preventing the flow.
People often ask how would registration and licinsing prevent gun violence. Well this is an example of exactly how it would.
