We Have Some Bad Apples on Our Side

Sandy Abrams got 5 years for firearms trafficking.   The big difference between the anti-gun folks and us, is we’ll air our dirty laundry, where they prefer to sweep it under the rug:

In the Parkville case this year, Baltimore County police charged Abrams, saying in court papers that the sale was illegal because customer Keith J. Showalter had a criminal record that prevented him from owning a gun legally and because such gun sales are supposed to be reported to the Maryland State Police.

Police responding to a call from Showalter’s estranged girlfriend on Feb. 18, 2007, fatally shot him after he refused to surrender and fired seven rounds from a military-style rifle at the officers, according to police.

As part of their investigation, police say they also found an illegal machine gun in Abrams’ custody during a search of his property.

The Brady Campaign will no doubt be savoring this.

    But, but, but…I thought teenagers could legally buy machine guns from unlicensed dealers at gun shows for $200 with no background checks…isn’t what closing the “gun show loophole” and instituting the “assault weapons ban” is supposed to stop?
