    Well, what do you expect from the upper eastern seaboard?

    Folks can blat on all they want about free country and all that, but regions vary. If you like guns but find yourself on the west coast or upper east coast, you are in the minority by far.

    "Quoting a police report filed in Lawrence District Court, the Eagle-Tribune reports Mokdad purchased a WASR-10 rifle from North Shore Firearms in Middleton about a month ago. An investigation was launched after the store's owner contacted police after speaking with Mokdad's father.

    The store's owner advised Mokdad's father that the high-capacity magazine and silencers are not legal in Massachusetts, and then notified police and the ATF about the inquiry, according to the Eagle-Tribune."



    Just goes to show you that even the gun shops in the crazy states are brainwashed.

    I wonder if the ATF learned that the shop owner was aware of the mags and the suppressor if they would yank his FFL. Could be why he called.

    There's nothing that will change someone's moral outlook quicker than cash in large sums.

    Majority rule only works if you're also considering individual rights. Because you can't have five wolves and one sheep voting on what to have for supper.

    Hearing of the customer’s questions, authorities assembled a task force from the Department of Homeland Security, the BATFE, the FBI, and the Methuen Police Department. They evidently tracked the call back to the Mokad residence and performed a search of their home.
    I’ll bet everyone was in full combat gear with at least one or two assault vehicles in order to take down such dangerous terrorists.

    Nah, just need to go to NH, ME, or VT. Solid pro gun states. Frankly, better than some of the southern states, ie can carry in church, restaurants, hospitals, etc.

    NH is our next stop. Can't wait! 👍 In my opinion New Hampshire is as solid as any state in terms of across the board freedom.

    I have to think the name, combined with the nature of the father's questioning, is what caused the store owner
    to call the police. It could well be that the dad said something to indicate he knew the mags were post date-- just speculating.
    Or the dad may have said something indicating that he didn't understand why his son had these things, and given recent history he was concerned about their legality.

    I don't see a basis for the search, the arrest on the storage issue seems can't stand unless they speculated and put that
    in the warrant, or the dad gave that info to the LGS and it got on the warrant. I can easily imagine that the dad might have seen those things in the house, become concerned about what his son had them for given recent history and maybe family stuff we know nothing of, called the LGS to ask some questions, and things snowballed from there.

    And of course we haven't a clue, nor would such info be made public, about what else the police may know or be concerned with
    regarding this fellow.

    As for the penalty for having post ban high caps, that issue exists in several states and is as odd as the 7 year penalty in NJ
    for having a hollow point.

    On the surface it looks like highly improper anti-Islamic profiling, but we don't know what is under the surface.

    I really wonder why the dad was making the inquiries. That seems odd.

    the father was inquiring about the suppressor, neither him nor the son actually owns a suppressor.

    why would the dealer lose his FFL? the story did not indicate that they were the ones who sold the mags. and if they did then they did so illegally, reporting or not.

    When I worked at a gun shop, we'd get calls that were basically "bait calls". I usually just said "Have a nice night OFFICER." and then hung up.

    My gut thought here. Son was talking about getting a suppressor. Father got to wondering what son was up to with those
    weapons and why he wanted a suppressor-- the recent events in Boston no doubt were on the father's mind, especially in
    light of the family name.

    So dad thought he'd make some quiet inquiries before deciding if he needed to kick the kid out of the house; my guess of course and pure speculation.

    Without seeing the warrant there is no way for any of us to know what the dad said to the dealer, what else the police might
    have been aware of besides this phone call from the dealer, and whether or not there was abuse of power and office or
    a sensible raid necessitated by what was actually known.

    As for the suppressor and high cap, and storage issue, the law is what it is in MA. Apparently that's what people there
    want. Let me know if The Supremes ever overturn it.

    Heller overturned the storage issue. True it was just in DC, but given McDonald, it is hard to see how it will not be applied across the board. This may be the case to do that.

    Interesting observation and possibly right, provided everything else is clean with the guy. Me thinks not, but that's just
    my gut talking.
