The ATF has created a new class of crime. Profiting from gun sales.
A man was buying guns legally at gun shows, then selling them for a profit in a private local sales.
“These were not the type of guns you would generally see someone purchasing to commit a criminal act,” Mangan said, however some of them had been tied to crimes. He did not have specifics.
“Some would qualify as antiques,” Mangan said. “He was deriving a profit from the sales.”
While private two-party gun sales aren’t a crime, a six-month investigation found that Daly was replenishing his inventory and sold firearms at gun shows in Nevada and around Arizona, according to authorities.
So, what did the authorities do for the heinous crime of profiting?
About two dozen Maricopa County Sheriff’s deputies and Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives agents clad in bulletproof vests and assault rifles surrounded the home of Robert B. and Lois Daly before 6 a.m. Monday.
God forbid the man makes a profit.
In the Communist USSA, profiting is verboten.
