    Good ruling. This is too easy of a way to bypass the laws of purchasing a gun.

    there are three threads on this issue-I noted that the 5 were probably right though I do not believe the federal government properly has this power but since it has been seized by the feral government it was a correct decision

    HOWEVER, the law needs to be changed to punish only transfers to prohibited persons

    Yeah, great ruling… how many families will now be broken apart as they send a parent/spouse off to jail because they bought a gun for their significant other (that was legally allowed to own a gun) … But I guess putting the other spouse and kids on government assistance is a good way to keep the level of government dependency on the rise.

    you can still buy a family member a gun as a gift, You cannot go to a dealer with the intent of purchasing a gun for someone else who paid you to buy the gun or paid you the cost of the gun

    its stupid that a guy gets busted when the person he bought the gun for was not a prohibited person-the law needs to change in that respect

    btw there are other threads on this with lots of discussion

    I think the government should have this power. We can't have mentally ill people getting guns this way.

    that is a power state governments have. the federal government was never properly delegated this power

    its already illegal to give someone a gun, sell someone a gun, obtain for someone a gun, who is legally not allowed to own it and that means those who are adjudicated mentally incompetent

    Until the 2nd Amendment is amended to reflect mental illness = no guns, it will forever be unconstitutional.

    the gun control types revel in the fact that the USSC under FDR allowed congress to grab this power for the federal government to regulate small arms with the "commerce clause" that only the most dishonest of clowns can claim was designed to allow such power

    sadly, this county is full of people whose attitude is -IF I like the law it has to be constitutional
