In giving probation with no jail time to a Milwaukee man charged with 55 counts of buying firearms with fake identification and dealing them without a license, a federal judge delivered a message:”People kill people,” U.S. District Rudolph Randa said, echoing a common gun rights slogan. “Guns don’t kill people.” Dontray Mills, 24, purchased a total of 27 firearms, mostly handguns, between December 2012 and April 2014 and pleaded guilty to one of the charges on April 22, 2014, after an ATF investigation. As a result of the conviction, Mills will never again be able to buy firearms legally.

Yes, 55 counts and he gets off with probation. in the ATF for 4473 one of the first things printed is the penalties for violation 18 USC – 921: 10 years in jail plus $200,000 fines per count. Mr. Mills could have faced 550 years in jail and 11 million dollars in fines if convicted in all counts.
Same as with the Brady Background checks which our Opposition puff their collective concave chests and claim 2 million criminals have been stopped from acquiring guns, but go mute the second you ask them how many prosecutions have been done against those alleged 2 million violators and how many of those have resulted in convictions.
But I am the problem because I don’t want more laws restricting my freedoms and refuse to “have a conversation” about guns.”
So much for #gunsense.

I’ve seen that situation happen too many times online. I don’t sweat it or worry about it too much, but otherwise rational people immediately go for the “ammosexual” trope when the gun conversation comes up. It makes having a reasonable discussion very difficult, and often not worth it.
So, he wasn’t buying them legally the first time around, but now he won’t be able to buy them legally ever again. Good thing we have those laws, or else someone who shouldn’t have been able to buy a gun may have gotten a hold of one.
Also, I love how the headline of the story is more concerned with the fact that the judge used the gun rights slogan than the fact that the judge only gave the man probation when he clearly violated the law repeatedly.
Sounds like a sweetheart deal for turning snitch. I hope that he is forthcoming on the whereabouts of all the weapons he resold and the real culprits get locked up.
Wasn’t Milwaukee where the BATFE had a “sting” where they lost half a dozen weapons, and only got a retarded man to fall for their scheme?
While yes it was Rob. Yes it was.
