Worthy Christian News » Supreme Court Tightens Restrictions of Gun Purchases

(Washington Times / Worthy News)– On Monday, the Supreme court in a split 5-4 decision, tightened restrictions on gun purchases, to prevent sham buyers from obtaining guns for the sole purpose of giving them to another person.

The 5-4 ruling was seen as the biggest test of gun rights during this term of the Supreme Court, and a majority of justices signaled their desire to strictly interpret the law in light of difficulties in background checks.

"No piece of information is more important under federal firearms law than the identity of a gun's purchaser—the person who acquires a gun as a result of a transaction with a licensed dealer," Justice Elena Kagan wrote in the majority opinion. — Source
