    Shooting Victim Joins Fight Against "Straw Buying"
    By Heather Shannon

    MILWAUKEE -

    A Milwaukee man was shot three times last year. He's still recovering.
    Six bullet holes, from where the bullets went in and out, cover his arm, back, and side. He's so nervous about retaliation that he doesn't want us to use his name. The woman who bought the gun used to shoot him is back on the streets after just ten months in jail.
    The shooting left him unable to work. He lost his job. He has tens of thousands of dollars in medical bills. He believes he's suffering more than the person who bought the gun used to shoot him.
    "Are you angry that she wasn't in jail for longer?" reporter Heather Shannon asked.
    "Yeah. She's just as much at fault as the guy who shot me. The one she gave the gun to," he said.
    He wants straw purchasing... where a person without a criminal record buys a gun for a convicted felon... made a felony in Wisconsin. City leaders called for the same thing at a news conference last week.
    The victim's cousin thinks if people knew buying a gun for a felon meant spending several years in prison, they'd think twice.
    "It should have been a felony a long time ago," he said.
    The man convicted of shooting the victim hasn't been sentenced yet. He'll be sentenced in November.


    But the victim doesn't want to give his name? Why not?
    If he feels so strongly about this issue and he truly is a victim, then why not give your name? Or is this just another made up story by the Nazi Media to help out Furor Flynn?

    The woman who purchased the gun did 10 months in jail and the shooter hasn't even seen trial yet? Hmmm, that sounds kind of odd to me.

    Through this whole thing I have been hearing the media, mayor, ect say "We are going to / needto make straw purchases a felony!"

    If what they mean is make a straw purchase a mandatory felony they should say that, and I would be all for it.The real problem is the DA's obviously are not prosecuting them as feloniesand the judges are letting it happen. So who is rely to blame?

    Now this girl who made the straw purchasewill befree to dothis again for someone else later.

    If the story is even true in the first place. Might be some made up BS to gain support for the Milwaukee Reich.

    Enforce the laws already on the books.
    “The 1911 pistol remains the service pistol of choice in the eyes of those who understand the problem. Back when we audited the FBI academy in 1947, I was told that I ought not to use my pistol in their training program because it was not fair. Maybe the first thing one should demand of his sidearm is that it be unfair.” — Col. Jeff Cooper, GUNS & AMMO, January 2002
