He can base a defense upon the Second Amendment protected Right to Keep and Bear Arms. He can claim that the Second Amendment protected(protects) his right to go out and buy arms, thereby claiming that any law he might have broken is unconstitutional. Dragging this SOB into court might be a blessing in disguise.

Irony knows no bounds.

Trouble is, this might just be why he won't be charged, or why any civil suits brought against him will be quashed.

We shall wait and see. They either go down in flames "for the cause", or the infringements upon our rights wither and die.

Why is that, Henry? Have you done something to harm someone's rights? Have you not done something to unfetter those rights?

Uh, no........ The 2nd Amendment guarantees the right of the people to keep and bear arms. Bloomberg and his minions represent the gumm't. Well, NYC's gumm't, anywho. The 2nd doesn't apply to them! :p

Like your thinking, though! :evil: :evil: :evil:

Better yet, have the gunshop owners counter-sue for entrapment......

Have the gunstore owners check the functioning of traded in arms on the problem.

I still don't see how that gets him out of the "straw man" purchases, though...?

Outside New York City, Bloomberg is one of you and me. He did his straw purchases outside his political jurisdiction. Prohibiting a "Straw Purchase" infringes the right, therefore, it would also be unconstitutional law.

Hypnogator,

A point of clarity: Though the Second Amendment protects our Right to Keep and Bear Arms, it prohibits government to infringe the right, therefore, it applies to government. It doesn't prohibit us, it prohibits government.

Woody,

What do you consider "in trouble"?

This is the way I see it:
on record
Judge: Mayor Bloomberg this court finds you guilty of attemping to purchase firearms by the means of a straw purchase. Since I realize you were doing it to promote the safety and welfare of the chilrenz, I impose 40 hours of community service to be performed while on duty as mayor. Furthermore, your record will be expunged after 90 days of unsupervised probation.
off the record
Judge: Hey Mike, we still on for that round of golf after lunch? I have some interesting land deals coming up you might want to look into.

;) :banghead:

Paco,

By "in trouble", I mean the violations of the unconstitutional law prohibiting straw purchases, and possibly interfering with federal investigations where others(the dealers) may have been complicit in violating the unconstitutional law against straw purchases before Bloomberg stepped in. There is more, too.

Woody

If you want security, buy a gun. If you want longevity, learn how to use it. If you want freedom, carry it. There is nothing worth more than freedom you win for yourself. There is nothing more valuable than the tools of the right that make it possible. B.E.Wood

Yeah, I know what you are saying Woody, but I seriously doubt if there would be any repercussions towards him regardless of whether or not he is found guilty.:(

Ummm, no, his way out is that he is from New York City, can buy and sell anyone, and can do whatever he pleases.
