i'm beginning to wonder, are there more crazies with arms then actual real law abiding gun enthusiast.
How does a person convicted of manslaughter obtain 18 assault weapons and other firearms, along with 40,000 rounds of ammunition? Well, according to NBC News, a White Supremacist from Ohio who also happens to be a convicted felon did just that.
The arsenal was discovered during a completely separate arrest of 47-year old Richard Schmidt, who owns a sporting goods store called Spindletop Sports Zone where he was selling counterfeit jerseys and other sports goods from China. Initially, it was simply a check up on a thriving counterfeit goods market, but then search warrants were unveiled and Schmidt was indicted on charges of illegal possession of firearms.
Even more disturbing is what the search warrants unveiled, which was four trailers out back with automatic and semi-automatic weapons, bullet-proof body armor, high capacity magazines, and ammunition. Further, evidence of ties to the Neo-Nazi movement was discovered, as well as a “Jewish 500″ list, which is supposedly a roster of Jewish-owned businesses. Further, there was paraphernalia from “Waffen SS,” Adolph Hitler’s Nazi military force through World War II.
