View Diary: What? Straw Purchase a Gun? Abramski v. US (69 comments)

Comment Preferences

  •  The paper trail I refer to was Abramski/Alvarez. (3+ / 0-)

    Alvarez mailed his nephew a check with the notation about the Glock. According to the government:

    Later, Alvarez gave petitioner [Abramski] a receipt confirming that Alvarez had purchased the Glock 19 handgun for $400. Federal agents found and seized the receipt while executing a search warrant at petitioner’s home after petitioner became a suspect in a bank robbery.
    Abramski was a resident of VA and Alvarez a resident of PA, and each had to be physically present before a Federal dealer.

    The notation on the check and the receipt may have been appropriate to a business deal between relatives, but why it was necessary to keep the receipt for seven months escapes me except to document the transaction as pure purchase and resale, thereby to set up the lawsuit. However, the evolution of these charges does not make this seem like a set up.

    Go figure!
