How about a Deputy Sheriff?
Do you think that sale should have to go through multiple layers of background checks? I mean they're cops, right?
The dealer sells the gun via the Internet to John T. Shipley, an FBI agent and gun hobbyist, in El Paso, Texas. (ed. who was operating an unlicensed firearm business)
Mr. Shipley sells the rifle to El Paso deputy sheriff Luis Armando Rodriguez, (ed. under investigation for arms trafficking) who resells the gun (ed. to a Mexican national under investigation for arms trafficking)
The gun is found at the scene of a shootout between a Mexican military patrol and a suspected drug gang in Chihuahua, Mexico.
So those who are entrusted to keep the law are violating it so that necessitates MORE laws to be put on the books to stop it.
