Only 24 guns? The POTUS illegally exported hundreds of firearms, some tied to drug cartel murders. Where's the outrage????

Clearly, this 25-year old is a brainwashed conservative Republican. He is under the delusion that the laws do not apply to him and that he can profit from illegal money laundering. So typical of Republicans.

Great news that the Israeli police stopped him. But why is he walking around free in Wheeling??

I knew Michael several years ago and can honestly say he was a good kid who apparently screwed up in a big way. He probably deserves a stiff punishment, however I do think 25 years is a little harsh. Punishment for murderes and rapists are more lenient. I do wish him the very best.

I doubt hes a brainwashed Republican. He prob had someone approach him to do this, and in his mind it was to good to pass up. He sent these weapons to Israel, our government does the same thing every day.

when given a 25 year sentence you rarely do more than 2 years in this state and you'll be out.get a job and start paying the $750.000 fine.murderers,rapist and child molesters should just be taken out and shot.

So this guy sends a few guns to FRIENDLY countries and gets 25 YEARS while the TERRORIST in the Whitehouse sends fully armed F-16s, and M-16s to TERRORISTS and NOTHING is done!!!

Obama sold enough weapons to kill over 300 men women and children in Mexico and he is still POTUS.

His drone attacks in the Mideast have allegedly killed over 200 women and children as collateral damage and he STILL is the POTUS!

FAIL!

I PREDICT THE SENTENCE WILL BE DEATH.

HOWEVER, A GUILTY PLEA MAY SAVE HIS LIFE BUT HE WILL NEVER GET OUT OF PRISON UNLESS HE BREAKS OUT WITH OUTSIDE HELP OR A MISTAKE IS MADE.
