Feds charge 8 in California with distributing homemade guns

SACRAMENTO, Calif. (AP) — Eight men were charged Thursday with making and distributing dozens of firearms, many of them assault-style weapons illegally equipped with silencers, in what federal officials are calling one of the biggest takedowns in California's Central Valley.

Undercover agents from the U.S. Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives purchased or seized more than 230 firearms and silencers. Many are known as "ghost guns" because they lack serial numbers and can be sold without background checks or transfer documents.

"Firearms trafficking such as that alleged in this indictment is one of the primary sources of crime guns found on the streets, and the manufacture of untraceable, unserialized firearms hampers criminal investigations, putting the public at greater risk," U.S. Attorney Benjamin Wagner said at a news conference. "High-capacity assault rifles, with silencers but without serial numbers, are some of the most lethal weapons that criminals can get their hands on."

If the USA ever got real serious about taking our guns away from us we will see these type of outfits open throughout the country and they would be doing great business.

Maybe, but all the nagging has shut down the last remaining gun store in SF.

Yup, just nagging. They intend to annoy the industry to death.

For any of you who saw the democratic freakshow/debate the other night... You may recall the Hildebeast zeroing in on Bernie's support of protecting gun shops from law suits...

Some folks (me for example) took that as a reminder, and bought another gun and a big case of ammo just in case.

That's the cover story. I bet the real story is the guy couldn't compete with the illegal street sales...no background checks, no sales tax, no records, and low overhead.

Now that SF has forced out the last gun store, no gun sales with be recorded. The criminals like that.

Remember California state Sen. Leland Yee (D-San Francisco):
California Senate's Top Gun Control Advocate Arrested In Firearms Trafficking Plot

California state Sen. Leland Yee (D-San Francisco) -- one of the state's strongest advocates for gun control -- was arrested Wednesday on charges that include scheming to defraud citizens of honest services and conspiracy to illegally traffic firearms.

Yee, 65, was seized at his home during a string of raids that capped an FBI public corruption probe.

Remember if a Democrat says "no", the correct answer is "yes".

It is entertaining to me to see how different states handle this issue. Here in Mississippi they have 2nd amendment day. All firearms and ammunition are exempt from state taxes on this day.

I tell my friends I bought an AR-15 by accident. A few years ago I went out for a drive an stopped by (one of) my local (thriving) gun shops. I didn't know it when I left the house but it was 2nd amendment day. To help support this day the gun shop was selling Bushmaster AR-15s for $499. I'm not sure I even wanted one but for 500 bucks, why not? I left the house for some fresh air and accidentally came home with an AR.

As I said, it's entertaining to me to see some states working to ban guns while this state strongly supports them.

Our entire culture is built on liberty.

A critical part of that liberty is gun ownership.

Gun ownership is the only freedom granted to us in the constitution that requires a "permit". And yet that very same constitution is very clear that gun ownership shall not be infringed. Think about that for a few.

Whenever a politician says you don't need a gun, you need a gun.

Period.

I'm surprised S.F. even had a gun store.

Much money to be made from illegal gun sales. Like the Kennedy's did during probation. Wonder if this isn't part of what they want.

Hey in Chicago, they even steal weapons from the police:
Rifle stolen from Chicago police SUV

A rifle was stolen from a Chicago police SUV early Friday morning on the Northwest Side, police said.

Officers had responded to a call at Community First Medical Center, 5645 W. Addison St., and returned at about 5:15 a.m. to find their SUV had been broken into and a rifle missing, said Chicago police spokeswoman Officer Janel Sedevic.

No further information was immediately available.

At least the police did not get carjacked.

The mayor of Chicago recently released a speech in that he blamed police for not having the guts to stop the violence.

Ummmmm

The mayor is in charge of the entire police dept.

Australian Gun Law Update
Here's a thought to warm some of your hearts....
From: Ed Chenel, A police officer in Australia
Hi Yanks, I thought you all would like to see the real
figures from Down Under.
It has now been 12 months since gun owners in Australia were forced by a new law to
surrender 640,381 personal firearms to be destroyed by our own
government, a program costing Australia taxpayers
more than $500 million dollars.
The first year results are now in:
Australia-wide, homicides are up 6.2 percent,
Australia-wide, assaults are up 9.6 percent;
Australia-wide, armed robberies are up 44 percent (yes, 44 percent)!
In the state of Victoria.....
lone, homicides with firearms are now up 300 percent.(Note that
while the law-abiding citizens turned them in, the criminals did not
and criminals still possess their guns!)
While figures over the previous 25 years showed a steady
decrease in armed robbery with firearms, this has changed drastically upward in the past 12 months, since the criminals now are guaranteed that their prey is unarmed.There has also been a dramatic increase in break-ins and assaults of the elderly, while the resident is at home.
Australian politicians are at a loss to explain how public
safety has decreased, after such monumental effort and expense was expended in 'successfully ridding Australian society of guns....' You won't see this on the American evening news or hear your governor or members of the State Assembly disseminating this information.
The Australian experience speaks for itself. Guns in the
hands of honest citizens save lives and property and, yes, gun-control laws affect only the law-abiding citizens.
Take note Americans, before it's too late!
Will you be one of the sheep to turn yours in?
WHY? You will need it.
FORWARD TO EVERYONE ON YOUR EMAIL LIST.
DON'T BE A MEMBER OF THE SILENT MAJORITY.
BE ONE OF THE VOCAL MINORITY WHO WON 'T STAND FOR NONSENSE
AUSTRALIA: MORE VIOLENT CRIME DESPITE GUN BAN

I think about the hereafter. I go somewhere to get something, then wonder what I'm here after ?
