One state to prosecute “lie and try” : notify domestic victims when criminals try to buy guns

Tne concept of “lie and try” is when a criminal tries to buy a gun, which would be illegal. Now, Washington State will begin notifying the victims of domestic violence when a convixted abuser attempts to buy a weapon. Of course this won’t stop the abuser from getting his hands on a gun illegally or through an informal sale that does not require a background check.
