    "...pleaded guilty in U.S. District Court in Hartford to a single felony count of possession of a machine gun not registered to the company"

    Sounds like one fell off the truck :D

    "The company specifically pleaded guilty to possession of 62 machine guns and machine gun receivers that were registered to another entity or not registered at all. ATF agents found the automatic rifles and receivers at the New Britain factory during an inspection July 15, 2014."

    It sounds like they got sloppy in their paper work and/or the BATF caught them on a technicality. I doubt they were trying to pull a fast one.

    There might also be a political aspect to it, Connecticut not being the friendliest state to that kind of business - they should have move the company.

    That has to suck, Didn't Stag arms build and supply parts and receivers to just about every body in the AR world before making complete rifles and other arms under there own name? If that is the case, that has to be a ton of money down the drain!

    But look at the bright side. With all the liquidated estates and assets seized they'll be able to contribute more to the Hillary fund!..
    and speaking of paperwork and questionable technicalities, that yields a big fat questionable lolz

    But did they register it to the retailer, you may never know and by the way they don't knock.

    You'd have to move it to a gun friendly country.

    Actually, the US is a gun friendly country. With a gun hostile government. I'm sure glad ATF is looking out for us peons though.

    if you read (watch) between the lines in that Fox news video it seems clear that what likely happened was not what they reported. 200 guns missing yet that had guns with "altered" serial numbers. Suppose they had a run of receivers with screwed up roll marks that should have been destroyed but where set aside for later? seems like that could account for both issues.

    That black haired broad from the state clearly was happy to say bad things about the evil gun maker.

    I am not saying they are blameless, but it would be interesting to hear from someone inside what the real deal was. Plainly CT didn't want them and the FED's found reason enough to make a stink.
