Originally it was reported that he was being charged with possession of explosives (assuming destructive devices) and now this article says: "illegal transfer of a firearm and making a firearm." Whatever that means. The article did say he told cops he recently sold a Mossberg shotgun with a shot barrel that he purchased from Walmart sometime in the past. It said short barrel, but no indication if it was 'short', like 18 inches, or he cut it down and made an unlawful SBS.
From the article:
The ATF affidavit recommended Ramos face charges related to the illegal transfer of a firearm and making a firearm. Law enforcement did not say Monday evening if Ramos had been officially charged.
The whole story is setting off my BS detector. They guy is apparently in business with another guy, who along with his son went to his house to "Kick him out of the company." But discovered the pipe bombs. An argument ensued and the partner or son (the guy that turned him in, ) said he got scared cause there was an AK-47 nearby. So apparently the following day they turned him into the cops.
BTW, the partner was convicted back in 2002 for.....wait for it.....making pipe bombs!
