Anti-gun activist arrested

for possession of illegal machine gun:

Hector “Big Weasel” Marroquin, 51, was arrested at his home in the 8000 block of 6th Street in Downey, said Susan Raichel, a spokeswoman for the federal Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms.

He was charged with the sale of an assault rifle, a machine gun, two pistols and two silencers, Raichel said.

As part of the same investigation, Sylvia Arrellano, 25, was also arrested at a home on Elizabeth Street in Cudahy, and faces the same charges, Raichel said.

Agents raided a junkyard Marroquin owns in the 4000 block of Mason Street in South Gate, and his restaurant, Marroking Seafood and Bar, in the 7000 block of Atlantic Avenue in Cudahy, Raichel said.

At each location, agents found gang photos and writings, she said.

Raichel said the arrests came as part of a nine-month investigation into weapons sales by the 18th Street gang, believed to be the largest in California.

A onetime member of the gang, Marroquin founded the group No Guns in 1996, which purported to work against gang and gun violence in inner-city communities.

    Let’s not be forgetting the $1,500,000 grant the smart libs inthe LA government gave this guy. I bet that bought a lot of MG and suppressors…

    Hey, give him his due. He was serving his constituents. Unlike our elected assholes do. He did what he could to make life safer for criminals and was paid by the FVA (Future Victims Association) to do it.

    If there is a clearer reason against citizen disarmament or California style totalitarian denial of citizen rights, I don’t know what it could be.

    Hey Californicators, wise up. The people on his side are not on your side, quit voting for them.

    Was his anti-gun activism court-ordered community service or an attempt to put some “character references” in place before he got caught?
