    Exclamation Philadelphia man arrested for trafficking 36 firearms in 8 counties: DA

    This really got buried. So what charges will actually be brought in court?

    The guy's just trying to make an honest buck and you bust him? Always trying to keep the brothers down.

    Who made the arrest? PA police or feds? Who is making hte charges PA or Feds? If they have proof of straw purchases and/or sales to prohibited persons those are violations of Federal law and Feds can prosecute him without idiocy from PA DAs.

    Found It! Montgomery County DA is pressing the charges. Maybe he should refer it to the US attorney's office.

    Maybe it was the gun shops who tip off the Police of suspicious buying patterns of the defendant?

    I wonder what is considered an "Alarming" amount of firearms? In the past two months I've bought 6 guns and plan on buying more before January.

    I'd say that four or more a week for someone who looks like that should meet the threshold.

    Dunno what he "looks like that". I ain't watching a long-winded ad.
    There are only two kinds of guns. Those I have and those I want.

    He looks just a little better than you'd expect. That should provide you with a good mental picture.

    A criminal mastermind, to be sure. His business plan was a bit weak in the risk/reward area. So assume he cleared $500 on the resale of each of the 36 firearms he bought, since the buyers were prohibited. Grossed $18,000 for five months work and over 1700 miles driven, among other expenses. The risk? Eventually be caught and sent away for a long time. Could have done better working Mickey Dees.
