YOUR THREE CENTS
YOUR THREE CENTS: Today...Do you think gun buyers should disclose when they're purchasing a gun for someone else?
The Supreme Court dealt a rare blow to the gun lobby Monday by ruling that gun buyers must disclose when they are buying firearms for other people.
The 5-4 decision upheld two lower courts that had ruled against so-called "straw purchasers."
The Justices said it would make little sense for gun purchasers to be allowed to buy from licensed dealers without reporting the actual final owners of the firearms.
Justice Elena Kagan wrote for the majority, saying "no piece of information is more important under Federal Firearms law than the identity of a gun's purchaser."
She was opposed by four conservative Justices.
Justice Antonin Scalia wrote the dissenting opinion, saying: "the court makes it a federal crime for one lawful gun owner to buy a gun for another lawful gun owner."
