Seattle man charged with making false statements during gun buys

Expand Gun Rights-Sanctuaries FILE – In this Feb. 19, 2021, file photo, firearms are displayed at a gun shop in Salem, Ore. The first legal test of whether a wave of U.S. counties can legally declare themselves "Second Amendment Sanctuaries," and refuse to enforce certain gun laws is playing out in a rural Oregon logging county. The measure Columbia County voters narrowly approved last year bans local officials from enforcing most federal and state gun laws, which includes things like universal background checks or any prohibition on carrying guns. (AP Photo/Andrew Selsky, File) (Andrew Selsky) By The Associated Press SEATTLE — A Seattle man has been charged in federal court with making false statements while purchasing 11 firearms. Quandre Reshawn Cranshaw was arrested Friday and made his initial appearance Monday. The indictment says Cranshaw purchased 11 guns in March and falsely stated he was the actual buyer of the firearms. Three of the guns were seized from a convicted felon less than 12 hours after the purchases. It was not known if Cranshaw has a lawyer. Prosecutors say it’s a federal felony to pretend you’re buying a gun for yourself when you’re actually buying the firearm for someone else who cannot pass a background check.
