While the Department of Justice transferred hundreds of guns to Mexican drug cartels without any criminal indictments handed down thus far, New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg takes aim at private sellers of firearms who are reportedly engaged in illegal activities online.
“It was evident that unscrupulous online gun sales pose a significant threat to public safety. Because this market is essentially unregulated no information about internet sales would appear in trace reports about guns used in crimes.”
Private sellers in New York, Texas and other states may sell firearms to individuals without performing a background check. However, most state laws make it illegal for private sellers to transfer firearms to those who may be suspected of having criminal intent, have admitted to not being able to pass a background check, or are not residents of the state in which they are purchasing the firearm.
