The founder of an antiviolence group called No Guns pleaded not guilty Thursday to federal weapons charges.
Hector “Big Weasel” Marroquin is accused of selling an assault rifle, a machine gun, two pistols and two silencers to undercover federal agents last fall. He could face up to 50 years in prison if convicted.
It’s wasn’t a one-time offer, either. Apparently, he sold illegal weapons to ATF agents on at least three separate occasions. The irony is so delicious you could eat it.
Mark Steyn adds: If you outlaw guns, only anti-gun groups will have guns. Also noted on Wizbang.
