How to attract the "alphabet agencies" in a way you won't like:
Ammoland reports this local luminary's ballistic enterprise was shut down by the ATF and Boston police. Ex-Winchester resident Tyrone Morris-Janey, 30, was sentenced to time served, three years of supervised release, and one year of home confinement for making false statements during the acquisition of a firearm. That's the straw purchase part. He also gave a false address.
He peddled a half-dozen guns, that the ATF knows of, including at least one with an obliterated serial number. That is illegal under both MA and Federal law. This is a rather insignificant sentence for someone who put at least a half-dozen illegal guns (and guns w/obliterated serial numbers ARE illegal) "on the street."
Note that the penalty for mere possession of a "post-ban," Large Capacity Feeding Device - read: magazine - is, for a first offense, by a fine of not less than $1,000 nor more than $10,000 or by imprisonment for not less than one year nor more than ten years, or by both such fine and imprisonment. For a second offense, by a fine of not less than $5,000 nor more than $15,000 or by imprisonment for not less than five years nor more than 15 years, or by both such fine and imprisonment.
That is for having a box with a spring in it.
Meanwhile, politicians and lobby groups are working to further restrict the rights of law-abiding citizens.
