    Who's going to explain to the LEO how much of the law, if any, anyone is breaking? Keeping up on daily current events, it's more than obvious that the majority of LEO's don't have a clue.

    I think "Those of you who think you know it all are annoying those of us who do" applies.

    Treo, there are always going to be those that get their firearms information from movies and hearsay from their friends. They have exactly zero in the way of facts and if they won't listen to you, te best thing you can do is distance yourself as far as possible before it all hits the fan - you definitely don't want to be associated with someone that doesn't listen.

    Awe... You've been in my office talking the recent "college grads" again. Cut it out, they know everything! Most of them can't button a collar or tie a tie, let alone think with out a computer or calculator. (Occasionally you will find a gem in the bunch. Those will go far!)

    YMMV.

    As a constant reminder to me I posted the following sing in my office "I try to never interfere with those who think they know what they are doing". To convince a bunch like the ones in the OP or even some on this forum that they are wrong is impossible and does nothing but get you and everyone else upset and cause hard feelings. Just sit back and listen. You may get a chance to interject some wisdom in but usually it will just be ignored and make things worse.

    Just consider the source and keep a wary eye on them.

    Self protection from stupids is just as important to your survival as self protection from genuine BGs.

    Unfortunately one is not allowed to shoot "stupids" to keep them from replicating! LOL! (Sarcasm intended!)

    Just like in many cases, "He needed killin'" should be a legitimate defense but is normally frowned upon by most defense attorneys as not PC enough.

    They are talking about breaking the law with a straw purchase, thus thinking about it and trying to get around the law. That would be something a half decent LEO would be able to discuss and I would love to see them tell him "oh you don't know?"

    Sorry, Treo. In my neck of the woods, "guy" is a genderless, generic term. "Those guys stole my bike!" could mean a group of males, females, or mixed gender group.

    It was my understanding that anyone with a military ID (active, reserve, or discharged) was entitled to make purchases at any PX. I know that the PX at the local Coastie base sees all kinds! Somebody edumacate me!

    No matter how you look at it, there is a straw purchase involved. If they have military ID cards and have it purchased for them. They are breaking the law. If no ID, then the purchaser is also breaking the straw purchase rules on use of the PX/BX. Coastie base exchanges have different rules on some things as the USCG is not the military. They are part of the DHS except when at war.
