Apparently some knucklehead in Manassas was unlawfully converting rifles into automatic weapons and short-barreled rifles, and making silencers, according to WTOP. If there’s one body of federal law that is consistently and vigorously enforced, it’s federal firearms laws, and any idiot that doesn’t understand that and decides to flout these laws deserves the stiff punishment he gets.
Undercover agents with the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives say they purchased four unregistered machine guns from Compton in April at his previous home in Ashburn. Compton allegedly told the undercover agents he had manufactured and converted the weapons.
Again this month, undercover agents say they met Compton at his home in Manassas and purchased two unregistered machine guns, an unregistered short barrel rifle and an unregistered silencer.
The person arrested was Christopher Compton. No information regarding this person’s address was reported.
