Chester gave up his handgun dealer's license, years ago, as a result of what I understood to be a paperwork snafu and/or some unaccounted for handguns. It was required that he have a handgun dealer's license, to legally possess "assault" rifles, "assault" shotguns and "high capacity" magazines, as an FFL. That, from what I understand, is the crux of the situation.

 

He had this stuff on his dealer's books, after the implementation of the SAFE Act, without the proper license. I don't know if he simply forgot they were on his books, from long ago but, once the SAFE Act became effective, he also could not legally sell or otherwise legally transfer them, even out of state, since he didn't any longer possess the proper dealer's license.

Hey all,
 This might be old news.
 I drove past the his place today and noticed that The Gunshop portion   has been gutted.... I can only hope that he's going to take the WHOLE building back  like the good ol days.   was getting kinda cramped in there.

Tim Sinai had a huge news conference on his indictment today, look on news 12 facebook it is probably the first post from today. Chester is screwed, I think he said like 69 counts , Surprised no one on here mentioned it on here

Chester had a huge inventory of firearms, Suffolk investors tracked down 13 Assault Weapons sold to non law enforcement individuals. Chester didn’t have a NY dealer license to sell handguns or keep high capacity magazines.
The DA took a long time, He wanted the numbers of illegal guns sold to prove his cause.

And in 40+ other states it would have been just another day for a regular trying to make a buck in the legal firearms trade.

Unfortunately, he had a few missing handguns from inventory that led to him losing the NY dealer license. The sale of an Assault Weapon used in connection with a kidnapping murder suicide was on display for the news.
His defense will have to prove he sold New York compliant rifles to the individuals caught with these firearms. He apparently was on the radar a while. If he takes this to trial. The DA will subpoena customers who bought firearms or miscellaneous items the defendant wasn’t allowed to have in the store.

Problem is, he allegedly sold a firearm that was used in the murder of a child. Very sad. Then the murderer took his own life. Good. But as usual, the tool gets blamed instead of the lunatic using it for illegal purposes. So the rest of us must suffer.

The DA is no friend of the 2A. The entire state is suffering since the Safe Act started.

He got a free pass and was told to stop selling without the proper licenses. But he couldn't help himself and continued to violate the law even after he got away with a warning. The guy did it to himself.

How many car dealers sold cars used in killing people by drunk drivers ? Name one dealer that was arrested. It is just a typical POS DA and cops looking for publicity. Remember T&T....

It was never said or posted that the rifle used in the kidnapping was an assault weapon..

They also kept it in a box so you couldn't see what it actually is.

If you look back when this happened it was reported as a HUNTING RIFLE in many news outlets and even by the guys wife.

DON'T ASSUME there was anything at all wrong with the sale of that rifle as SINI wants us to believe..

Case in point is the 50cal BOLT ACTION RIFLE that he paraded around as an assault weapon when it is not.

MUCHO BULLSHIT IN THAT PRESS CONFERENCE

News 12 interviewed the ex wife , she was unaware that rifle was an illegal firearm. News12 said it had two parts that made it illegal.
The DA kept the rifle closed because he said it had blood on it. The defense attorney can use that interview and pick it apart if necessary. If that firearm inside the box isn’t an AW, and his defense attorney can prove his client only sold them before losing his NY dealer license might change the jury’s decision.
I understand that was all smoke and mirrors yesterday with the DA.

If that "Hunting rifle" as it was called when the murder suicide happened is NOT an assault weapon then Chester never needed a NYS dealers license to sell it!!!!
