ATF: Profiting From Private Gun Sales Is A Crime

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.

AzCentral reports:

“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.

The horror.

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.

    why didn’t you include the part of the original article that would have made the story clear instead of leading on about something that is actually not true?

    the man didn’t have a license to sell firearms, but he was doing so, using a store-front.

    the ATF didn’t act outside of the law.

    and i’m no fan of authority. however, i am a fan of truth and clarity.

    The article is clear.

    He was selling firearms he purchased as a private citizen at guns shows in two party sales.

    The ATF came and raided his house and didn’t find anything.

    “Daly has not been arrested, but the investigation is ongoing and could involve additional associates, Mangan said. He declined to say who else may be involved.”

    Daly wasn’t arrested because he didn’t do anything wrong.

    This would be the SAME BATFE that LOST THE PAPERWORK on a gun I legally purchased and paid sales tax on here in Washington so that when I was arrested and jailed for it being a stolen firearm some 12 YEARS LATER by the GUN SHOW BANDIT-President John Rodabaugh of Washington Arms Collectors, Prosecutor in the City of Fife, Washington. It only took 4 YEARS for Honest Sgt. Currier of the Adams County, Colorado Sheriff’s office to return it to me, it’s rightful legal owner after GSB did his best to NOT LET ME GET IT BACK. President/Prosecutor Rodabaugh DID STEAL some other guns of mine as well as 32lbs. of gun powder, several high grade custom knives, not to mention holding my property (100’s of guns) for over a year until the U.S. Observer intervened and got some of my property returned. The only gun thieves I have ever met work for the government and are paid by you an I! PAPERWORK MY ASS! PRY IT FROM MY COLD DEAD HANDS BUT BE CAREFUL-IT’S GONNA BE REALLY “HOT!”
