Airmont, NY: You really know how to pick ’em.

The town’s “deputy mayor has been sentenced to eight months in federal prison,” onaccounta LOOK AT THEM PICTURES. Vast unregistered arsenal stashed in his basement.

[He] admitted before Rockland Judge Larry Schwartz to two counts each of third-degree criminal possession of a weapon: silencers, assault weapons, and high-capacity magazines...

The District Attorney’s Office said Downey admitted possessing a Colt Carbine semi-automatic rifle and an Aero Precision semi-automatic rifle; Surefire LLC and an Advanced Aramet Coro M4-2000 silencers; and two large-capacity feeding devices: Magpul magazines that could hold more than 10 rounds of ammunition.


His comment to the authorities had a nice Dr Strangelove spin:

[He] told … agents he believed he was permitted to modify short-barrel rifles. His reasoning was he was a peace officer…

You know… that scene where President Merkin Muffley says “Gentlemen, you can’t fight in here! This is the War Room!”
