ATF Proposes Closing Loophole for People Obtaining Guns though Corporations or Legal Trusts

ATF is proposing to end a loophole that allows people to obtain weapons such as machine guns though corporations or legal trusts without a background check, Courthouse News Service reports.

Anyone wanting to buy a gun is required to file a photo and fingerprint card with the ATF and a local law enforcement agency.

But that’s not the case “if the applicant or transferee is a partnership, company, association, trust or corporation,” Courthouse News Service reported.

The number of those legal organizations increased from 840 in 2000 to 40,700 in 2012, according to the agency.

75 Years Later FBI Still Trying to Debunk Myths About John Dillinger

WASHINGTON –-Seventy years after FBI agents gunned down the infamous bank robber John Dillinger in Chicago, the publicity conscious agency is still working to debunk what it considers the many myths surrounding Dillinger.

The FBI press office has now posted on its website a page entitled “The Top 10 Dillinger Myths”.

Here is one.

Myth #10: Dillinger was a “Robin Hood” type criminal, a romantic outlaw.

Dillinger certainly had charm and charisma, but he was no champion of the poor or harmless thief—he was a hardened and vicious criminal. Dillinger stormed police stations in search of weapons and bulletproof vests. He robbed banks and stole cars. He shot at police officers (and may have killed one) and regularly used innocent bystanders as human shields to escape the law. Worse yet, he stood by as his ruthless gang members shot and killed people, including law enforcement officials. And what of his ill-gotten gains? They were used to line his own pockets and those of his partners in crime, not those of impoverished Americans in the midst of the Great Depression.
