When will anti-government types learn.alleging they purchased machine guns and grenades from a paid police informant
Anytime someone offers you an NFA item without a legal transfer (tax stamp), then it's a frigg'n TRAP!
Machine gun, check.
Hand-grenade, check. Huh! Wait a second...
Pen gun, check.
It's their go-to tactic to get an easier conviction on the charges, and stiffer penalties (or at least a pretty sure fire conviction on the NFA charge). Plus it demonizes the suspects in the media (ohhhhh, machine guns!).
Sure, terrorists are bad, terrorism is bad. I'm just pointing out the obvious.
