If he was approached by someone that could not own the gun and bought it for the sole purpose of giving it to a prohibited person, THAT is a straw purchase.
Otherwise, buying that set of singleshots to modify into camping guns given away as gifts makes a lot of people "straw purchasers".
LOOSE definition???? IF you want to buy guns to resell you MUST have a FFL, bound book.....
The post you commented on. Poster said "I did buy for SOLE purpose of resale" This person is subject to arrest/conviction/never being able to legally TOUCH a gun or ammo.
Now IF I went to Wally World (or other place) Bought a gun, then decided later I didn't care for it. IF I THEN decide to sell it (my understanding is that legal) BUT IF I buy it with intent to resell/I do NOT have a FFL.. Thats a criminal act.
