    for your own personal use (your own reasons) and then gift it to someone who is legally permitted to own guns.

      until he took possession of the firearm, there would be no issue. Under current law, he could have taken possession, then gifted it to whomever he wants.  this bring us to two issues:

      1). isn't the whole push behind universal background checks, something that I back, supposed to address private sale/transfer of firearms?

      2). Prisons are full of people, innocent or not, who talked their way into a sentence.

      I don't have any issues with him buying a firearm, he's legally entitled to one. I think he got caught in a situation that while completely benign, looks terribly politically incorrect at a time when he's trying to build political legitimacy though his new gun control organization and the democratic party in general, and he let himself talk his way into a problem.
