    No wonder Glocks were so scarce in some parts of the country.

    Let me get this straight. A distributor defrauded Glock by selling LEO/Mil discounted weapons at retail discounts. Right? DOJ is charging them with several counts of various crimes. They face years of prison time and millions of dollars in fines. Right?

    Holder and the BATF force gun stores to sell guns to the drug cartels, American and Mexican citizens(including federal LEO) are killed. Right? DOJ talks about prosecuting the gun shops. Right?

    Did I get that right????

    Disgusting!

    Well, the conspirators methods appear amateurish, and they will hopefully get their due rewards. Hopefully the DOJ is nailing some bad apples, and not just hunting witches. With this DOJ one never knows.

    Isn't this big business as usual? What's the problem? This stuff usually involves the gov't.

    I'm sorry it went down like this,
    And someone had to lose,
    It's the nature of the business,

    You've got to carry weapons
    Cause you always carry cash.
    There's lots of shady characters,
    Lots of dirty deals.
    Ev'ry name's an alias
    In case somebody squeals.
    It's the lure of easy money,
    It's gotta very strong appeal.


    Perhaps you'd understand it better
    Standin' in my shoes,
    It's the ultimate enticement,
    It's the smuggler's blues,

    What some will do for money, will never surprise me.

    OV,
    That's the real issue here. They didn't pay the right baksheesh! Much like Gibson Guitars, they did not donate to the right party! Though Gibson did not actually do anything even remotely illegal.

    I think there is collusion between Glock people and the distributor.
    The Glock folks knew what was going on.

    Fraud is when one party doesn't know they are being taken to the cleaners.

    But still white collar crime at worst. No deaths of innocents or arming of the enemy. Right?

    The way I read this they were provided with "Glock" software to print new labels, and appear to be legitimate. in order to pay Millions in bribes they had to be making many more millions themselves. lets say they made an extra 3 million on 14000 guns, That would only be a markup of $214.50 on each gun. The numbers don't add up! It had to be many more guns, and was probably Glock themselves asking that they be prosecuted. The theft was from Glock and their legitimate distributors. DR
