Anti-gun advocates plead not guilty to gun crime

In a monument to both governmental and anti-gun stupidity, the city of LA gave Hector “Big Weasel” Marroquin $1.5M to fund an anti-gun group. Later, Big Weasel was arrested and charged with the sale of an assault rifle, a machine gun, two pistols and two silencers. The only people shocked that someone named Big Weasel would use his $1.5M to do something illegal seem to be the city of LA.

Well, turns out Mr. Big Weasel has plead not guilty:

The founder of an anti-violence group called No Guns pleaded not guilty Thursday to federal weapons charges.

Hector “Big Weasel” Marroquin is accused of selling an assault rifle, a machine gun, two pistols and two silencers to undercover federal agents last fall. He could face up to 50 years in prison if convicted. . . . .

In other news, I’ve seen this only on a blog and a blurb in the LA Times. I’m guessing if an NRA supporter of reasonable prominence were to go through the same thing, it’d be all over the news. Like that one time when one of their board members was all over the press for losing his Federal Firearm License for making clerical errors.

    Actually Weasel’s pled NOT guilty. He’s a pretty fascinating character, and the LA Weekly’s done a couple of big stories on him over the past couple of years. Apparently when he first got a city contract for his anti-gun group, he was facing charges of pointing a rifle at an officer. He’s got a history of arrests and no prosecutions, because family members have taken the fall for him.

    So, is the Big Weasel going to demand his right to arms under the 2nd Amendment?
