(SOUTHSIDE) -- OFFICIALS IN THE U. S. JUSTICE DEPARTMENT SAY UNDERCOVER GUN BUYS MADE AT TWO GUN SHOPS IN DANVILLE AND SOUTH BOSTON MAY HAVE BEEN ILLEGAL. AS A RESULT, NEITHER OF THE DEALERS WILL BE PROSECUTED. THE SHOP OWNERS WERE THE TARGETS OF PRIVATE INVESTIGATORS HIRED BY THE CITY OF NEW YORK WHO POSED AS BUYERS AND MADE "STRAW" PURCHASES. IN SUCH A PROCEDURE, A BUYER FILLS OUT THE PAPERWORK FOR A GUN THAT IS SOLD TO . . . SOMEONE ELSE! THE FEDERAL GOVERNMENT NOW SAYS THOSE UNDERCOVER BUYERS MAY HAVE BROKEN THE LAW THEMSELVES. NEW YORK OFFICIALS SAID GUNS SOLD IN FIVE STATES WERE USED IN CRIMES COMMITTED THERE. GUN RIGHTS ADVOCATES ARE PRAISING THE JUSTICE DEPARTMENT'S DECISION NOT TO PROSECUTE THE DEALERS AS A "SIGNIFICANT VICTORY." THE SECOND AMENDMENT FOUNDATION HAD CRITICIZED THE STING OPERATION.

BUT Bloomberg's CIVIL suits are still on going. Unfortunately, this is NOT over. We never expected the Feds to do anything as no laws were broken by the stores.

No "may have been illegal" about it. These turds were not VA LE nor were they feds (hell they were not even LE, period). That's the only two jurisdictions involved. These guys should be treated as it they were "caught" straw purchasers. They were not "undercover," they were intentionally and by their own admission violating federal (and state) law. They should be prosecuted to the fullest extent just as if they were criminals (because they are).

Now that I've vented. I think it's great that the dealers are not to be prosecuted.
