    Does anyone have any knowledge about any possible 594 sting operations going down in Vancouver? I know they recently did similar ones to catch people selling privately to Oregon residents but had not heard of any relating to 594. I just had a really shady experience with a guy that makes me think they might be setting people up.

    If he was going to bail when you got to the FFL, I am betting it was a stolen firearm.

    Was he the buyer or seller? Perhaps not a sting, but maybe a prohibited person, someone that knew he couldn't pass a background check, or maybe didn't want that kind of light shined on him.

    IT'S A GROSS MISDEMEANOR.

    NAME ME a law enforcement organization that's going to organize a "sting operation" to catch someone on a gross misdemeanor.

    (prostitution excepted), because "vice squads" are always trying to justify their scummy existence. GOD FORBID someone get laid and pay for the privilege with something other than the customary dinner ($100) flowers ($50) and drinks ($50).

    Nope, that $200 to a working girl, THAT is a CRIME.

    Personally I wouldn't put it past any of the alphabet fedbeasts, after seeing the millions upon millions of wasted dollars in the prosecution of motorcycle club members. It's the government, why wouldn't they waste their time and our money? Gotta get the headlines to prove to the sheep that it's justice, not just us.

    NAME ME ONE fed LE organization which has EVER gone after ANYONE on a state-only violation. Yes, your paranoia is obvious and unsupported by any remote connection to FACT.

    Paranoid or not, I was just giving my opinion as you have done. Point is the OP was feelin weird on a deal and thought it may have been a sting operation. Just because it never happened before doesn't mean it won't ever happen.

    Ya, I apologize if I sounded like I was slamming you. That wasn't my intent.
    But no, I don't think anyone needs to worry about 594 "sting" operations.

    It's a lot of resources for a no-crime that will get more criticism than praise.

    No worries, just wanted to point out that the feds don't seem to have a problem burning through cash faster than they bring it in on boolshyte cases, whether or not they will be flamed in the media, which they don't have to tell in the case that they are completely wrong and blatantly abusing their power.

    Hey Penguin, was the guy buying or selling? Without putting all the details on a public forum you may save a future buyer/seller from getting busted even if the guy has a checkered past, which was probably the case.

    It's only a misdemeanor for the first offense...and it is a charge for each gun, not transaction.

    Oh - I just assumed the reluctant party was the seller.

    In which case he wouldn't care about a BGC, but would care about it showing up on a stolen list or later having his name on record as selling it.

    Ya know, if they just passed a law against being a douche (in general), then I'm sure that would prevent all crime, yeah? :rolleyes:

    How about the ATF seizing toy guns because they claimed they could be turned into functional firearms.
    How about the state police using a helicopter to catch speeders, which is a violation not even a misdemeanor.

    I don't think how ever much they would like to the Feds can investigate or prosecute a state crime. I594 is not a federal law, the Feds have no jurisdiction or ability to intervene

    Are there lists on line to check #s on possible stolen guns before a person buys? It seems with a smart phone or iPad one could access such a list before buying? If one gets a sketchy vibe from the seller....
