"Straw purchaser" charged

Federal Charges Filed Over Man's Gun Purchase
Authorities said Daniels falsely stated to Pawn & Gun Sales, a licensed firearms dealer, that he was the actual transferee or buyer of a pistol and that he was not acquiring it on behalf of another person.

The indictment said Daniels was purchasing the gun for Robert Sears. Police said Sears shot and killed his girlfriend, Carrie Russell, 24, and then later himself.
Violation of laws here: Straw purchasing, violation of protective order, person who has restraining order in possession of a firearm and probably a few others.

A victim has little chance against someone with murderous intent.
