Criminal lawyers from LibertyBell Law Group represented a client charged with an illegal straw purchase of a firearm across state lines. Experienced criminal lawyers know that not only is a straw purchase of a firearm illegal, but attempting to purchase a firearm from another state is a federal crime.
Our criminal lawyers were amazingly able to get the case dropped for the client, though he did have to surrender both AR-15 semi-automatic rifles to the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives (ATF). AR-15 semi-automatic rifles were originally designed and used by the military. The military names them M16 semi-automatic rifles. Some states have made possession of semi-automatic rifles by civilians illegal.
An illegal straw purchase of a firearm occurs when the buyer does not want his or her name associated with the purchase and thus does not purchase it from the licensed dealer directly.
LibertyBell Law Group’s managing criminal lawyer, Gina Tennen, working on the case was able to prove the client is a good standing citizen and had no criminal intention. A top team of criminal lawyers and experts worked very hard on this case to get winning results for the client.
