    This is where the energy should be spent, on people who aren't following the laws. Although I'm sure that this will get turned around against legal gun owners some how....

    Wow, street price of $800 each? [roll] [?]

    I guess they weren't on the AG's approved list, eh?

    It'll probably just be used as "evidence" that Boston gun laws work 100%, but it's those terrible other states that ruin it. [roll]

    yup - tougher guns laws would fix that - right!


    Six guns - one count on the charges? Why isn't it six counts.? Does that mean if I kill six people, I'll get one count of murder laid on me?


    Something funny here, me thinks.

    Maybe when I think if Gun Running, I think of Crates of guns being smuggled into town.

    But then I think that I also watch too many movies. But I don't really think of 6 guns as running guns.

    By the way that story was written, it sounds like this is the first time that they have done this. And no really part of a larger group.

    But I do agree that this where the focus needs to be, not on legal owners.

    That's what I usually think of as well.

    At least this one can't be blamed on your neighbors to the north. :)

    Further evidence of Mumble's genius. See, if we HAD put up checkpoints and mandatory vehicle searches, we'd have found even MORE guns!

    And with the GPS systems, we'd even know where to find them!

    After all, sacrificing our rights is no real loss if it makes us feel safer........ [roll]

    WHat's the max sentence they could each get? 10 years per gun right? Sixty years each?

    I bet they get probation.

    I think that the only way that they could manage something like that with the advanced security and law enforcement technology in use today would be to hide them in a shipment of cocaine. [roll]

    That's what's (probation) been happening in NYC. There's been a big push to change that after the cops were shot recently.

    LOL!!

    Then to hide the cocane it needs to be in a huge shipment of Dunkin Donuts Coffee.

    THAT'S IT!!

    We need to be searching all Dunkie's Shipments. [shock] [roll]

    Don't be silly. That's the first place they'll head. It would be like trying to hide something from one of us by putting it in the middle of Four Seasons. [wink]

    Hats off to the investigators and the snitch.
    Now I hope the judicial system applies the law and sentences accordingly.

    I want to know how they got the guns in Alabama.

    If it was from a licensed gun dealer, I want his FFL pulled and his ass in jail.

    If it was a strawman purchase, get the person's name off the 4473 and nail their perjuring hide to the wall.

    Let's see... Six counts of perjury, six counts of strawman purchases. Each (IIRC) carries a penalty of five years in FEDERAL jail... That's at LEAST 30 years for whoever bought the guns.

    THEN... IIRC it's five years per gun per state line crossed. The LEAST # of state lines is 6. That's 30 years PER GUN. 150 years.

    How much does anyone want to bet that the sentences will be in the "months" time frame?

    What was it that Henry Bowman said? The first one is expensive, the rest are free.

    Frankly, I blame New Hampshire!!

    We should probably mobilize the Mass National Guard to stop this horrible threat that challenges our way of life!

    Arrrr

    -Weer'd Beard

    PS: I bet they get off with a slap on the wrist as well. No WAY this state can charge a criminal with a crime.

    for them to get into Mass, they had to drive thru RI, or Ct or NY.

    It's those states problems for letting them thru to us.

    I'd be shocked if they got more than a few months. I think they should consecutive terms on each count at the maximum for the crime. Start sending messages to criminals. Its the only way.

    If they get off easy it's only going to make others want to follow suit.

    whatever happened to Truth and Sentencing like New Hampshire has?


    p.s. truth and sentencing is where when the judge gives you a sentence, you MUST serve the sentence, no way of getting out on probabtion like in this state
