Post Cartels Using Women As "StrawMan" Gun Buyers

Mexican drug cartels are using women as straw buyers to purchase weapons for their gangs. With no criminal records, the women involved easily qualify for legal gun purchases and then turn over the weapons to the crooks for a small payment for their services.

Nothing new. Our own homegrown gangsters have been using their girlfriends and Babymommas for many years to buy guns, title vehicles and real estate, and do any number of transactions that keep the heat off the crooks.

Wanna outlaw it? It's already illegal to transfer a gun to a felon or other disqualified person. So should we like "double outlaw" it?
