About 6 months ago there were a couple of threads on the orignal KT Ordnance raid. Here's the one with the most info. A couple of days ago Rick notified some folks that he got word he was being officially charged. I've been keeping track of the progress on this thread over at The Claire Files board. According to that thread Rick has been informed of the following (his words): On the first charge, illegal posession of a machine gun, I cannot help but mention that it would be quite easy for the BATFE to come up with a charge of "constructive posession" given Rick's machinery and supplies on hand. On the second, illegal manufacture, if this is related to the two 1911 pattern .45s he made for himself I'm really confused. In my dealings with Rick he seems to be a stickler for the law. If making those pistols was illegal I really doubt he would have put them front and center on the "Showcase" page of his website. He's never made any bones about making them himself. In fact they were the only two guns he mentioned missing when the BATFE took his property during the raid. Just my thoughts. Figured some of y'all might be intersted. The original threads on the KT Ordnance raid garnered a bit of attention.
