    It seems everyday a cop is getting busted for something down here. The corruption in south florida is unbelievable.

    For some LEOs there is a tendency to become brashly impertinent combined with the sentiment of invinciblity.

    Idiot. He obviously knew the law and had an FFL in the past he let expire. You would figure he would not be that stupid.

    And the real problem . . . we let the gov get involved in the buying and selling of consumer goods.

    You think that's confusing, prior to his stint as a cop he was in the US Army, reaching the rank of Captain.

    I'm wondering... Is it the heat or the humidty that caused his brain to fail? At least he sorta checked to see if the buyers were previously approved. Kinda. Still, Fail!

    And, I gotta ask myself, from where or who was he getting the guns to sell anyway? A distributor or was he moving used firearms? If it wasn't so serious, I'd also ask in my best GNG voice, "what was his profit margin?" Because I'm like others here, I tend to buy high and those I do sell or trade off, sell low.

    TBO, where DO you find all these wonderful articles? Drudge? :dunno:

    There's so many I trip over them (I read a lot of news sources on the web, and many of the articles I search to read have links on the bottom to other unrelated news articles that often turn out to be more interesting than the one I was searching or reading).

    First, as his FFL expired, he can argue that he was no longer a licensed dealer and no longer bound to do the required background checks.

    Second, if had ANY inclination that failing to do the background checks might get him in trouble, why did he even keep records?

    He was nailed for dealing if fireams w/o a license. The number of transactions over a given time period has a very low threshold for the ATF to consider you to be "dealing".

    Would you say that he blew past any reasonable threshold of activity?

    Also, Jose Antonio Quintana isn't his real name. His mother named him Moe, and her last name was Ronic.
