No “Straw-Man” Gun Sales

It’s the season for the United States Supreme Court to issue rulings.  Today, they took a step toward controlling gun sales.  Writing for the majority, Justice Elana Kagan wrote: “No piece of information is more important under federal law than the identity of a gun’s purchaser — the person who acquires a gun as a result of a transaction with a licensed dealer.”  The majority upheld the the statutory requirement of providing information about the actual purchase.
