If all of the allegations are true, I can't imagine doing something like that for any amount of money. :(


Tyler Carlson, 28, of Austin; Michael Fox, 69, of Georgetown; and Tracy Garwood, 62, of Scottsdale, Arizona, were each charged with one count of conspiracy to violate multiple federal laws, including possessing and transferring unregistered machine guns and unlawfully exporting firearms to Mexico, the release said. Each of them is facing up to five years in federal prison on that charge.

Carlson was also charged with one count of possession of an unregistered machine gun, for which he faces up to 10 years in prison.
Carlson worked with others to acquire and unlawfully smuggle 200 firearms including .50-caliber rifles, plus hundreds of rounds of ammunition to Mexico, the release said.
It said he worked with Fox – who is a former law enforcement officer and federal firearms licensee – to illegally acquire multiple M-134G Minigun machine guns.
The M-134G has six barrels and can fire between 2,000 and 6,000 rounds of ammunition per minute, according to the release. As part of the scheme, Fox contacted Garwood – the owner of Garwood Industries in Scottsdale – who agreed to help build the guns and supply Fox with M-134G parts, according to the release.

I wonder IF maybe they got the idea from the Obama /Holder concept of doing this and nothing being done legally to those involved?
HMM/ wouldn't it be interesting IF a reporter asked about that?

I thought mini guns were illegal to own? How is it POSSIBLE one could be smuggled to Mexico? I mean, they're illegal, right? They tell us everything the drug cartels have was purchased legally at a gun shop in Arizona and smuggled south. :rofl:

So, what are they going to do about the other 5,387 people smuggling guns into Mexico?

Wait a minute. Are you two somehow implying that government employees with badges and politicians should be held to the same standard as ordinary people? What's wrong with you?

Obviously I must be a rabble rouser, general trouble maker, and radical to have these kinds of thoughts!
I am so ashamed of myself!!

According to the history books I read when I was young, the laws of the United States were to SUPPOSED to be enforced on EVERYONE in the United States.
I guess those old books were wrong.
Then again, there is a reason it's called the criminal justice system. Many times, it is downright criminal what justice is given out.

I'd like to know where you can get a mini-gun. I smell a sting. Bet the guy who supplied him with them let the fed's know someone was looking to buy them and they greenlighted the transactions

That seems like a lot of trouble. If a cartel wanted some miniguns all they would have to do is go to a military armoury and make a offer to the soldiers they couldn't refuse. They could probably work out a deal that included some class instruction time.

We musta’ gone to the same school system. I was taught that - along with the concept that ignorance of the law (not knowing that what you were doing was illegal) is no/CANNOT BE excuse for breaking the law! Yet look at the 25+ felonies Hildabeast committed and the justice system just chalked her actions up as “poor judgement “!!

Tough to stop before the fact, when the owner of https://www.garwoodindustries.com/ goes crooked, along with a former LE / FFL holder. Not really on anybody's radar.
