  •  No. Felons are not allowed to own guns. If she (7+ / 0-)

    knew Spengler could not legally buy the guns himself, she knew something was fishy with her buying them.

    If the driver of a car used for a bank robbery is as guilty of murder as the one who pulled the trigger, she's an accomplice here.

      your example is of felony murder, and that person was actively involved in a criminal felony that they knew was ongoing and during that felony, someone died/was killed.

      This is not the same thing. There was a two year gap between her getting him the guns and him using them. There is no evidence that she knew he was a felon, or what the felony was for if she did know.

      For all we know, he sold her a story and she took pity on him.
      Regardless, there is no reason to believe she knew he would use those guns to kill someone.

      •  Wasn't it a felony for her to buy them for a (0+ / 0-)

        felon from the start?

        And you can't say maybe she didn't know since that info is public record and I believe 'Ignorance of the law is no excuse' means exactly that.
