BREAKING: CRIMINALS GET GUNS ILLEGALLY!!!http://nypost.com/2017/03/08/massive-gun-bust-is-biggest-in-brooklyn-history-authorities
Brooklyn cops broke up a huge, Virginia-based weapons-smuggling outfit and seized 217 weapons — the biggest firearms bust in the borough’s history, authorities said Wednesday.
Gun runners were caught on tape boasting about the commonwealth’s weaker gun laws that allowed them to easily assemble their cache of weapons, which they sold up north, according to police and prosecutors.
All the weapons seized were purchased legally by suspects or their straw buyers in Virginia, officials said.
“We’re going to go after anyone who brings illegal firearms into our city and into our borough,” acting Brooklyn DA Eric Gonzalez told reporters, standing behind a podium and displaying some of the seized guns.
The weapons included AK-47s, AR-15s, Tommy guns, Mossberg 715Ts and MAC-10s, officials said.
Handguns seized included .45-caliber Desert Eagle 1911s, Glocks with extended ammunition magazines and various other .45-caliber, .40-caliber, .380-caliber and 9mm weapons.
All 217 weapons were purchased through one NYPD cop, working undercover and making multiple buys.
