Pro gun advocate

Post by RebStew on February 2nd 2011, 10:37 pm

Everyone knows how I feel about being able to have legal firearms. People like this in the story below is what makes it hard on us. Goverment has to deal with this crap and end up making laws that limit our use. Sad thing is we have to go by the laws written but the criminal will not. So we take the hit for it. Right before I read this I told someone they needed to watch buying so many gun because it would throw up a flag to the ATF. Even if they are legal buys. It's because of goofbals like this below.


According to the indictment from on or about November 2004 through May 2005, Tolliver, aUnited States citizen residing inCanada, received requests from marijuana traffickers inCanada for firearms. Tolliver would instruct co-defendant Lamarcus Jones to acquire specific types of handguns from gun dealers in northernKentucky through the use of "straw purchasers." Straw purchasers buy guns for other people while falsely representing that they are buying the guns for themselves. Once the guns were purchased, co defendants would remove the serial numbers inKentucky then transport the firearms throughDetroit and smuggle them intoOntario, Canada where they would be exchanged for marijuana.

The nine other defendants in this investigation who pleaded guilty and were sentenced include:

Lamarcus Terrance Jones, 29 ofCovington, Ky., pleaded guilty to two counts of use of a firearm during and in relation to a drug trafficking crime and received a sentence of 140 months in prison.

Anthony Deeago Lightfoot, 47 ofCovington, Ky., pleaded guilty to three felony counts including possession and transportation of firearm with obliterated serial number in interstate commerce, conspiracy to possess with intent to distribute controlled substances and use of a firearm during and in relation to a drug trafficking crime. Lightfoot received a sentence of 60 months in prison.
Phillip Walls, 47 ofCovington, Ky., pleaded guilty to two counts of use of a firearm during and in relation to a drug trafficking crime, aiding and abetting and received a sentence of 72 months in prison.
Michelle Walls, 45 ofCovington, Ky., pleaded guilty to possession and transportation of firearms with obliterated serial numbers in interstate and foreign commerce and use of a firearm during and in relation to a drug trafficking crime and received a sentence of 30 months in prison.
James Cramer, 53 ofCovington, Ky., pleaded guilty to one count of possession and transportation of firearms with obliterated serial numbers in interstate and foreign commerce. Cramer was sentenced to time served (25 months) and two years of supervised release.

Linda Mason, 54 ofFort Thomas, Ky., pleaded guilty to possession and transportation of firearms with obliterated serial numbers in interstate and foreign commerce and received 13 months in prison.

Tonya Sullivan, 27 ofNewport, Ky., pleaded guilty to possession and transportation of firearms with obliterated serial numbers in interstate and foreign commerce and received 12 months in prison.

Amanda Chambers, 27 ofNewport, Ky., pleaded guilty to possession and transportation of firearms in interstate ad foreign commerce and received a sentence of 20 months in prison.

Lisa Moeckel, 36 ofNewport, Ky., pleaded guilty to possession and transportation of firearms in interstate ad foreign commerce and received a sentence of two years probation.

Mr. Berg commended the agents from ATF, deputies of theMonroe County Sheriff's Department, the Canadian Provincial Weapons Enforcement Unit,Toronto Police Service, Peel Regional Police and U.S. Immigrations and Customs Enforcement as well as the Canadian Immigration and Customs Enforcement for conducting an exhaustive investigation which resulted in the convictions of this criminal organization and well as the Ontario Crown Attorney's Office for their cooperation and assistance in the prosecution of Mr. Tolliver.

SOURCE U.S. Department of JusticeDuring the course of the investigation it was discovered that some of the guns which Tolliver was responsible for smuggling intoCanada were recovered at crime scenes in the greaterToronto area. Specifically, one of the straw purchased guns was used in the shooting of a Canadian law enforcement officer and another was the primary weapon used in the killings of eight Bandito motorcycle gang members inOntario
