It kind of amazes me the number of people in the anti-gun movement that get charged with firearms crimes.  You’d kind of expect it to happen to us more often, but I think most of us know the law and try to stay out of trouble.   Dave Hardy links to the latest case of gun-control activists getting charged with gun crimes.

The founder of an anti-gang organization known as No Guns, once funded by the city of Los Angeles, was arrested Thursday and charged with selling firearms to federal undercover officers.

Hector “Big Weasel” Marroquin, 51, was arrested at his home in the 8000 block of 6th Street in Downey, said Susan Raichel, a spokeswoman for the federal Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms.

He was charged with the sale of an assault rifle, a machine gun, two pistols and two silencers, Raichel said.

So you kind of  wonder if  this guy favors gun control just like any other business owner favors laws that help his business.  If you’re an illegal arms dealer, you have to love the idea of the government sending more business your way.   Getting 1.5 million from the City of Los Angeles to hand out to your relatives doesn’t hurt either.

I’m not prepared to shout hypocrite.  It seems to be “Big Weasel” is just a very smart black marketeer.   Certainly smarter than the idiots who apparently run Los Angeles.
