If I read the law right it's only a straw purchase if she buys it for me and I'm prohibited from legally owning a gun. I can legally own a gun just not sure I would pass a nics check because the database has not been updated. I hope that is the case because she did buy me a rifle for Christmas.
If memory serves me right if you can't legally own one then the wife can't as long as the 2 of you are living under the same roof. I'm quite sure that if I'm wrong I'll be corrected
