Jersey City police say man had illegal rifle, handguns, prohibited bullets in home

jccopcar.jpgA Jersey City man was arrested after police found an assault rifle in his home similar to the one used in the massacre of 20 students and six teachers in Newtown, Conn., on Dec. 14, officials said.

Bail for Keith Pantaleon, 33, of Tuers Avenue, was set at $75,000 when he appeared in court yesterday on charges related to the Bushmaster assault rifle model XM15-E2S and other weapons.

The assault rifle had a bayonet mount and its barrel was threaded to accept a muzzle flash suppresser, making it illegal in New Jersey, Deputy Police Chief Peter Nalbach said.

Pantaleon was also charged with unlawfully transporting a large-capacity ammunition magazine when three, 30-round magazines were found at his home Friday, the complaint says. Police did not say what led them to Pantaleon’s residence.

Update (comment from the above article):

Keith is a very good friend of mine, a law abiding citizen, a professional IT Specialist, educated, talented, friendly, kind, and fun. He is also a staunch supported of the gun rights, the 2nd amendment, and a citizen activist. He would be very happy if could see all of your supportive comments because what has happened to him is totally unfair and a complete violation of his civil rights and his constitutional rights as well. I am in the process raising money to help him fight this case. A win for him will mean a win every law abiding gun owner. If you will like to support or be kept in the loop about his case, or even send messages of support, you can send that to stand4keith@gmail.com.  He can use all the support he can get right now. Thank you!

    Please note the violent propagation of THE LIE that an “assault rifle” was used at Sandy Hook, more than two weeks after this false claim was totally and finally debeunked -- From the first paragraph; “similar to the one used in the massacre of 20 students and six teachers in Newtown, Conn. ” But it has clearly been established, by the corroner and the state police in Connecticut, that the “assault rifle” was never used (it never even removed from the trunk of the car), and that all of the deaths were inflicted by the “four hand guns” found inside the school.

    LIE, LIE, LIE. DAMNED LIARS WILL NEVER STOP LYING ‘TIL THEY DIE…

    I’m curious to know how he could be charged with transporting a “large capacity ammunition device”, when said devices were discovered in his home. Does he live in a mobile home?…Was Jersey undergoing an earthquake with magma displacement when the Stasi found the evil large capacity ammunition device”? (Chris Christie is SUCH a RINO!)
