    The Feds jumping on this case is their attempt to raise a smokescreen to hide Fast & Furious by saying, “It can’t be us, see, we are working hard to stop illegal gun traffic”.

    Other point: so far, in that narrative, I don’t see any violation of Federal law, only (maybe) Californica laws which are likely unconstitutional.

    Also, no arrests pursuant to the warrants: very unusual: when a search warrant is served, someone had to swear a violation of criminal law, which imputes there is probable cause to arrest. If no one was arrested, it likely means the Feds were on a “fishing expedition”, using a judge who winked at the constitutional requirements for a search warrant.

    Funny how all the “crimes” mentioned that will ruin these guys lives would otherwise be considered, Tuesday, in Oklahoma.

    The task force charged with investigating any possible criminal activity carried out by Deputy William Pot will be headed up by ATF Special Agent Ron Kettle.

    Based on the little bit of info in the article, I’d say that it’s all about guns that aren’t on the CA “Safe Handgun” list, which cannot be sold by a dealer in their original condition (the same guns are perfectly legal to purchase from a dealer under the single-shot exemption, where the purchaser subsequently converts the gun back to semi-auto after taking possession.)

    The rumor is that these officers were buying Ruger LCP’s (legally) then selling them to private parties (which is legal) through CA’s DROS/registration process (legal.) However, ATF and DOJ think they created two 4473’s and two background checks for each gun too many times…
