A Pennsylvania couple were busted after investigators found six fully assembled ghost guns, Nazi paraphernalia and nearly $1 million in methamphetamine in their apartment, authorities said.

The collection was allegedly found Wednesday in the Northampton residence of Christopher Weikert and Tara Gallucci as narcotics agents from the Pennsylvania Attorney General’s Office and state police executed a search warrant.

In addition to the assembled ghost guns, investigators found three kits to build the firearms — which allow people to bypass background checks and don’t have serial numbers — various ghost gun parts, four assault rifles, three handguns, and “Nazi paraphernalia,” Pennsylvania Attorney General Josh Shapiro said.

These people are not that far away from being my neighbors which kind of gives me the creeps.

These folks trafficked in both ghost guns & meth in bulk. Why wouldn't you believe the prosecutor reporting what he was told by the police: they were assault rifles? Those are probably in demand considering all the recent press where they were used in mass shootings.

because democrats constantly call things "assault rifles" that are not. the rifle pictured in that article appears to be a Garand, which is not an assault rifle. No mass shooting in US history has been perpetrated by a legally owned (private citizen) assault rifle. NOT ONE

people who traffic in a banned substance, will have no issue trafficking in banned firearms
I was more commenting on the fact that they look like pretty much anyone you would see behind the counter at a gas station, including the bad dye job.

Very scary, especially when you start wondering which of your neighbors might be doing something similar in their houses.

No kidding, last year the cops came to my house & told us to evacuate immediately. There was a random shooter in a house across the street.

Their mouths were closed-tweakers' teeth tend to look like shit

There are a lot of labs in Ohio. Do you know any? Cops usually find the meth cookers when they respond to a house fire/hazmat call.

And because of the possession of firearms while in the commission of a felony, they can each count on 5 years added to their sentences. It doesn't matter what kind of gun they had.

I wonder how much MAGA crap they found laying around? :(

Yes, because if we didn't we could have been killed or injured by random gun fire. A kid had gone off his meds.

TIL that a million dollars worth of meth can fit in an apartment.

I am no longer in the DOJ but I knew of many such locations over the years. One of the main ways of busting labs-or grow operations, is when the power company finds a bypass at a building or when a home in an area is using far more electricity than others that are similarly sized. Sometimes neighbors complain of weird odors too. Three of the biggest real estate forfeitures I handled involved the power company contacting the police because the occupants had bypassed the meter

They were assault rifles as defined by the US congress AWB.
Its been defined for decades.
The silly semantic bologna was WAY stale...about 20 years ago.

We just had a whole admin full of ‘em.
cute but stupid. the vast majority of violent felons are more likely to vote Democrat than Republican. Who says so? Look at every group trying to get felons voting again
