National Rifle Association (NRA) CEO Wayne LaPierre Endorses Increasing Penalties on Straw Gun Purchases

by Colonel on March 24, 2013

“National Rifle Association CEO Wayne LaPierre said Sunday that he’d support gun reform legislation that would “beef up the penalties” on straw purchases of firearms and illegal gun trafficking, as well as getting records of mentally ill into the national background checks system.

“We are working on a bill right now that will, hopefully, at least get the records of those adjudicated, the mentally incompetent and dangerous into the check system that applies on dealers,” he said on NBC’s “Meet the Press.”

“Most of the states still do not even do that. We need to see if we can get that done. We’re looking to get better enforcement at the federal gun laws. We’re looking at laws that beef up the penalties on straw purchases and illegal trafficking, which we want prosecuted.”
