I figured it meant you are buying an agriculture product for something other than consumption. Like a place for horses to take a dump when in a stall.

Don’t take none of this as legal advice cause it ain’t! Anyway, here’s a link to the “Straw Man Purchase” statute:

And here’s an interesting US Supreme Court case:

After reading all that, “you be the judge,” as Paul Harrell would say!

I know there are many illegal laws regarding firearms. However, I do not go out of my way to break any.

A local FFL dealer that I have done quite a few transfers through said if you buy 5 or more guns in a 30 day period the local LE is also notified per ATF law, never heard of that ? dealer told me to just buy so I never do that many transfers in a month…

I heard the same but that it was for those purchases made in border states like Texas. But maybe it’s nationwide?

You know when you think about this for a second, it is REALLY STUPID! If you have two hands and two guns what difference does it make if you have fifty guns at home? You can still only shoot two at a time at best!.Oh and lets not even go to the “it’s quicker to drop an empty and grab a loaded one” because it is not. When I practiced rapid reloads on a pistol I could drop and swap a mag a truckload faster than I could dig out another weapon and get back on the sight picture with it.
