Kirk: Straw Purchases Must Be Addressed


The latest video from Senator Mark Kirk’s office has a very ominous message about gang violence and gun trafficking.

 

The highly produced video (seen below or at this link) focuses on straw purchases and gang activity. The video explains the process of straw purchases where someone with a clean record buys a gun legally and then trades the gun with gangs for cash or drugs.

 

Kirk’s video also comes with an announcement that he is joining with New York Senator Kristen Gillibrand on the first Federal law that makes gun trafficking a crime.

 

Kirk says that each year Chicago Police recover 13,000 illegal guns from gang members. Gillibrand says their proposed law would give law enforcement the proper tools to keep Americans safe while keeping intact the Second Amendment of the Unites States.
