This is ridiculous, I am glad that the federal Government has nothing better to due with our money then waste it busting individuals who have a passion for firearms and nothing else. The feds totally blew their case and came up with nothing so that had to pick on a couple nobodies so they did not look as stupid as they are.

Passion for firearms? What about the chemicals? "Pat on the back" for the Government doing their job.......

The chemical reported in the article is a tent sealant? Sounds like a job for the EPA rather than the FBI.

I grew up about 2 miles from Morgie Jones, and I went to school with two of his kids. He may be a nut, but I seriously doubt he's a danger to the community. Danger to himself, maybe...

Morgie has never harmed anyone. He also has done a lot of work to preserve the second amendment.He worked with the local officials in promoting firearms safety training for children and was supporting the local sheriffs departments bid to wrestle some of its authority back from the state.
All the local politicians including state representative used to speak very highly of morgie. Now these same filthy politicains are scurrying for the shadows.They don't want to be associated with federal governments latest incarnation of Osoma Bin Laden

what a joke... anyone who thinks the government did the right thing here, apparently does not know what they are talking about and are just following the media like a lost puppy... and when the government comes to take our firearms, like nazis, you will wish there were more people like morgie...

Oh heck I would let Morgie baby sit my kids. If he seriously wanted to harm any one he could or would have done it by now.

I say free Morgie!! He is very well liked around here.I think the FBI and government need to get a grip of themselves.

Morgie has been in parades and other social activities and has never once in his life bothered the residents around here.

I mean come on Morgie has lived in this area in like forever. He's a great guy!!

I have know Morgan for over 20 years, he is a danger to no one. Of course anybody who remembers me knows I went through my own problems with the silly law enforcement in our area. Anybody who dares to be differnt in our area is open to this kind of harrassment. Day by day the rich and powerful in our country take away our freedom, think about this when you vote

Today Morgie plead guilty to selling illegal firearms. The DA is recommending 18 to 24 months prison term. Sentencing is on October... by that time Morgie will have spent about 14 months in jail already, so hopefully they just sentence him to time served. The bigger punishment for him, will be the felony conviction and the prohibition on ever owning firearms again. The government at its finest... They caught their evil militia ringleader, now America is safe.

Mr. Jones is the type of personality that thrives thrives on ignorance ...his own and those who buy into his actions because he is a "nice guy" etc. I'm embarassed that the area was once my home ... I really believe it deserves people who have the intellect to see how dangerous he is and the total drain he's having on the area and the good folks who reside there.
