Bet he gets between 2 weeks to 1 month in jail.



Those 2 illegal mexicans that were caught with 147 rifles heading into Mexico near Laredo only got 10 days and 45 days.



Lindsay Lohan's 90 day sentence is longer than what those illegal mexican gun runners got. Enforcement of immigration, firearms trafficking and ITAR laws is a fucking joke.

This is the kind of guy they should be looking to catch, but I agree, that's hardly a buying spree. Normal media bullshit fed by asshole LE to me.

Any chance the guns were going to plain citizens of Mexico looking to even out their odds of survival?

We have many members that are happy with theirs.  Check out the AK-47 Pistol sub-forum.

But if you got caught for something like this, you would get several years.

That's an interesting question.  No idea what you have to do in mexico to buy a gun as an average citizen.  My impression is that the cartels have access to any kind of weaponry they want due to their influence in government and the army.  This bust is chump change.

I bought two of those ak's at the last George r Brown show in Houston, Haven't had a chance to shoot them yet but now I am nervous I was on a spree and didn't even know it.

Is there a certain amount of guns you can buy at once before you get slapped with an 'intent to distribute' charge?

So how did the stores deny him was it the background check or did they feel uneasy about the guy? Also did one of the gun stores call the ATF on him or did the ATF automatically send someone out? This is kinda weird for only buying a few handguns...

Unless your one of those evil bastards that makes a clerical mistake. They throw those sons of bit*hes in prison like they should.

Then there was coordinated action with local LE:
McAllen police pulled him over for an alleged traffic violation near North 5th Street and Business 83 where he was questioned by ATF agents.

Sure... he just happened to be pulled over by local LE with ATF in tow. There has to be more to this story.

I want to get a Saddle scabbard for my golden retriever so that she can carry two of them when we are afield!  They would look so good against the red fur.

Well, I guess you would have lost a customer here.

He should have told them he was a Mexican.  He would have been deported and be back in McAllen later that afternoon.
