“A college student from Lebanon has been arrested on weapons charges after local and federal authorities discovered two assault rifles, high capacity ammunition clips and a handgun in his bedroom in this Boston suburb,” eagletribune.com reminds us. “Authorities said they were tipped to the weapons cache when the student’s father called a gun store to ask how to modify an assault rifle to fire a 30-round clip. They said the father also inquired about purchasing a silencer for the rifle. Detective Charles Dejesus of the Methuen Police Department said the person who took the call at North Shore Firearms in Middleton, Mass., advised the caller the ‘items he was inquiring about were illegal’ and promptly notified authorities.” Should the LGS have dropped the dime on Jad Ali Mokad’s Dad [son shown above]? One more [unreported] factor you should consider . . .

The BATF was investigating us for an unrelated incident at the same time this event occurred. That means that they were present, standing right there. Do you understand? Is that too much to comprehend at one time? North East Shooters, think before you post, we don’t take false accusations lightly. For all you people out there, we do sell high cap. magazines, have been since we opened. You trouble makers…stay out of our store.
So, make the call or no?
