Supreme Court to Decide If One Person Can Buy Gun For Another

As seen on Happening Now

The Supreme Court will decide whether or not it should be a crime for someone to purchase a gun for another person if both are legally allowed to possess a firearm.

The decision stems from a 2009 case in which former police officer Brian Abramski Jr. bought a discounted gun and then sold it to his uncle.

Dwane Cates, a member of the National Association of Criminal Defense Lawyers, and San Diego County Deputy District Attorney Wendy Patrick joined Gregg Jarrett today on Happening Now to discuss the case.

“All this man was doing was trying to use his police discount to get his uncle a gun at a discount … he even made his uncle pass a background check before he got the gun,” Cates said.
