Founder of Anti-Gun Group Charged with Selling Illegal Assault Weapons

I saw this at Sister Toldjah's site and couldn't help but laugh out loud. The hypocrisy alone, should this be proven true, is priceless:

The founder of an antiviolence 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.

Marroquin, 51, of Downey, is a onetime member of the 18th Street gang who founded No Guns in 1996. No Guns received $1.5 million from the city as a subcontractor on anti-gang efforts, but its contract was canceled last year.

Marroquin is charged with three counts of manufacture, distribution and transport for sale of an unlawful assault weapon, along with one count each of machine gun conversion and possession of a silencer. He remains free on $260,000 bail.

Only criminals want guns. That's why he started a liberal organization such as "No Guns". He kept law abiding citizens from defending themselves. It worked too - for over 10 years. Stupid libs. Liberals are dumb as bricks.

I have said that all democrats are hyrpcrites but it seems to go futher than that. A local police chief gave a raging anti-drug speach (on TV) on Friday. On Sat at 2 PM he was arrested on numerous charges of distribution of Hard drugs including Meth. He said Friday that the drug dealers were done in his town and he was going after them. Seems the FBI had been after him for months. Hypocrite or Criminal, all the same in the democrat party.
