    FBI arrests 2 men on firearms charges near Ferguson

    FBI arrests 2 men on firearms charges near Ferguson - CBS News
    Two with Black Panther connections charged in St. Louis in federal firearms case : News

    The FBI arrested two men earlier this week on firearms charges as part of increased law enforcement presence in Ferguson, Missouri, ahead of a grand jury decision in the shooting death of Michael Brown.

    Court documents show Brandon Orlando Baldwin and Olajuwon Davis face charges of making false written statements in connection with a firearms purchase and aiding and abetting. FBI spokeswoman Rebecca Wu told CBS News the suspects were arrested on outstanding warrants.

    A law enforcement source said the two men allegedly purchased explosive material during an FBI undercover operation to possibly use during Ferguson protests.

    Court documents show Baldwin and Davis were arrested and charged with the illegal purchase of two Hi-Point .45 ACP pistols.
    Listen to the video. Black Panther Party, interesting.

    Well, two less gun owners walking the streets is a start. Now when the rest of them are round up, we can live in a truly free society. Until then....Almost Black Friday!!!

    Just so we know what we're really talking about:

    (from the link in the OP)

    The indictment was handed up Wednesday and unsealed today accusing Brandon Orlando Baldwin and Olajuwon Davis of making false statements to obtain firearms. The defendants’ ages and addresses were not made public.

    According to the indictment, between Nov. 1 and 13, Baldwin, also known as Brandon Muhammad, and Olajuwon, also known as Olajuwon Ali and Brother Ali, acquired two Hi-Point .45 ACP pistols at the store, claiming that Baldwin was the buyer when, in fact, the weapons were intended for someone else.

    Notices of sealed search warrants suggest federal agents searched three locations during their investigation. Those warrants were not made public and did not identify the person for whom the guns were allegedly being purchased or for what purpose.

    It was not immediately known if the men were held or had posted bail.

    The police source, who spoke on the condition of anonymity, said their arrests were part of ongoing investigation that has spanned several months.

    Local and federal authorities executed search warrants at two residences, one in the 2500 block of Hampton in the city and the other in the 1500 block of Reale Avenue in north St. Louis County, the source said. The raids yielded information that both men had planned to obtain illegal weapons to do harm to law enforcement and the public.

    One can defend themselves with a broadsword and trashcan lid or silly string or running away. Without guns, there will be a lot less to defend yourself against so yes, it will effectively be a free country, at least more free than it is today.

    Awesome....seems like the system worked as it is supposed to, so no need for new laws. Now...if they hit them with mandatory minimum sentencing laws, that would be perfect. 30-40 years MINIMUM ought to do it.
