    It seems that an upstate NY man was arrested yesterday in a massive raid incorporating local and NYS police SWAT teams at his home. He apparently was building illegal AK-47's at his home and selling them. They say he had over 70 firearms in the house as well as multiple cases of ammo - including weapons stuffed in the walls. He is a registered FFL owner. For all those who poo-poo NYS draconian gun laws, not everyone rolls in this state. Granted, some one who has an FFL shouldn't be stupid enough to be making illegal weapons as they already have your address at a finger tips distance. Of course, local news paints this guy as some type of domestic terrorist. My bet is he was selling them at the local indian reservation. NYS police have shoot outs with smugglers from time to time up there. :celebrate

    So, I fail to see what he did wrong here... Was he actually cold-forging weapons himself? Or was he purchasing from manufacturers, assembling, and then selling? Was he selling to people without NICS checks?

    Or was it just that AK-47s are illegal in New York?

    It looks like New York officials arrested the wrong guy yesterday...

    I had to start a thread in the "News and Political Alerts" sub-forum. The rest of the country needs to hear about this. I'm not buying it. Sounds like a load of garbage to me. I don't believe any media reports any more until there is a burden of proof. Especially a media report that uses law-enforcement as their sole source.

    I can't believe that NYS would endanger the children by having guns
    and ammo boxes laying about the floor insted of properly stored out of the way
    in the walls.

    That is the safest place unless they are crooks stealing the coper pipes in the walls.

    Any update on this? Is he out on bail? Why no more coverage?

    Maybe it is CYA time. Now that the MO. terrorist definition memo is voided,
    they have no case.
