Aurora IL Police Kidnap, Then Rob Gun Merchant

31-year-old Joel Romero, of Aurora, IL, was tired of his .44 handgun and wanted to be rid of it. What better way to do that than an online sale? After all, the Internet is the new home of the merchant.
Shortly after he listed the pistol on his favorite online marketplace, the Orwellian Community Oriented Policing Unit (individuals who have completed the Citizen Police Academy) became aware that a slave was selling his weapon. This is a no-no in the occupied state of Illinois. So the arrogant busybodies took it upon themselves to notify “the authorities,” agents of Aurora’s Special Operations Group (violent psychopaths who prey on free people engaging in voluntary exchanges), who quickly conspired to kidnap this innocent merchant.
damnit kenny 2The violent thieves lied to Joel, convinced him they were interested in a voluntary exchange of value, and arranged a meeting to view the product. Instead of having a non-violent interaction, they assaulted and kidnapped Joel. He is now being held captive inside a state-sponsored rape cage. When the criminal gang ransacked Joel’s home, following his kidnapping and incarceration, they also stole two of his other weapons.Arbitrary Edict Enforcers claim that Joel told them he purchased the weapon from Sergio Godoy in a previous voluntary exchange. So what action did the violent bureaucrats take? They issued an arrest warrant, you know, what they call men with guns coming to your home – of course. Armed agents were dispatched to Mr. Godoy’s home around 7:30 the following Tuesday. He is now also being held in a state-sponsored rape cage.
In today’s climate of fear, when the Lamestream media would have you terrified and shaking under your collective blankets, afraid of boogeymen hiding around every corner, one would think that individuals being responsible for their own safety would be paramount. Will there once again be a day when one can freely trade his goods and services with others, free from state mandated violence? Is a free and independent humanity, unified by a deep respect for property rights and acceptance of others, a figment of my imagination?
I suppose it all depends on YOU. Are you willing to continue to accept the arbitrary authority of corrupt and immoral individuals? Do you like being stolen from, kidnapped, and treated like cattle? If so, embrace the status quo. If not, question authority and refuse obedience.

    On the real world this guy tried to sell his pistol in an illegal way and got busted.

    Ok then.

  • PiggleWiggleGiggle

    In the real world private sales of guns is not illegal unless you are a gun dealer or a transfer agreement and background check are needed by administrative law.

    You should brush up on gun law before making an ass of yourself as you just did.

    Indiana has no law requiring a background check on the purchaser of a firearm when the seller is not a licensed dealer.

    Although a background check is not required, Indiana law expressly
    provides that the state’s handgun sales restrictions (i.e., the
    prohibited purchaser provisions) apply equally to an occasional sale,
    trade, or transfer between individual persons and to retail transactions
    between dealers and individual persons.1

    In addition, a person may not sell, give, or in any other manner
    transfer the ownership or possession of a handgun or assault weapon to
    any person under age 18, except an individual acting within a
    parent-minor child or guardian-minor protected person relationship, or
    any other individual who is also acting in compliance with provisions
    relating to children and firearms.2

    Indiana prohibits any person from selling, giving, or in any manner
    transferring the ownership or possession of a handgun to another
    individual the transferor has reasonable cause to believe:

    Has been convicted of a felony or adjudicated a delinquent child for
    an act that would be a felony if committed by an adult, if the person
    seeking to obtain ownership or possession of the handgun is less than 23
    years of age;

    Is a drug abuser;

    Is an alcohol abuser; or

    Is mentally incompetent.3

    A person is criminally liable for a Class D felony if he or she purchases a handgun with the intent to:

    Resell or otherwise transfer the handgun to another person who the
    transferor knows or has reason to believe is ineligible for any reason
    to purchase or otherwise receive a handgun; or

    Transport the handgun out of the state to be resold or otherwise
    provided to another person who the transferor knows is ineligible to
    purchase or otherwise receive a firearm.4

    Any person who sells, barters, gives, or delivers any deadly weapon
    to any person in a state of intoxication, knowing him or her to be in a
    state of intoxication, or to any person who is in the habit of becoming
    intoxicated, and knowing him or her to be a person who is in the habit
    of becoming intoxicated, commits a Class B misdemeanor.5

    Although Indiana law specifically excludes Indiana residents licensed
    to carry handguns from Indiana’s handgun sales requirements,6
    the Indiana State Police have stated that this statute became
    inoperative on October 1, 2003, when Indiana licenses to carry a handgun
    ceased being an alternative to background checks under the federal Brady Act. See the Indiana Concealed Weapons Permitting section.

    The Indiana Code does not address the private sale of rifles or shotguns.

    See our Private Sales policy summary for a comprehensive discussion of this issue.

  • JC

    He sold a gun to an undercover police officer. It’s illegal to sell fire arms on line. If he were responsible, he would have checked out all the laws first. He did it too himself.

  • Common Sense

    See, when you make your argument this way, no one listens.

    “…The undercover officer allegedly purchased the gun from Romero around 12:30 p.m., and subsequently Romero was charged with felony unlawful sale of a firearm and unlawful possession of a firearm. A search of Romero’s home turned up two additional weapons — a .32-caliber gun and a sawed-off, 20-gauge shotgun, police said. Through talking to Romero, police learned he allegedly purchased the .44-caliber weapon from Sergio Godoy, 46, 1700 block of Walnut Park Lane. Ferrelli said Godoy was also charged with unlawful sale of a weapon, and unlawful possession of a weapon. He was arrested around 7:30 p.m. Tuesday at his home, Ferrelli said….”

    Oh look, it does in fact seem to be a violation.

  • Josh Winky

    This is one of the worst written things I have ever read. I am a gun nut, rights enforcer and all around American but to twist the truth and use hyperbole kills your message.

    Please reconsider your wording. Please take this piece of trash down and replace it with facts.

  • JCthecocksucker

    You’re a fucking idiot!

  • Government is a Cult

    Where’s the twisting of truth or hyperbole? Maybe you just can’t handle the truth and want to downplay the significance of that truth so as to calm the your statist cognitive dissonance when your religious programming doesn’t match reality.

  • Josh Winky

    You don’t see twisting of truth or hyperbole? Perhaps you should read the article and try again.

    Nice try tying to assume things about me and attack those assumptions. I look forward to reading many more incoherent ramblings from you.

  • Government is a Cult

    What part is hyperbole?

  • JC is a thing from the sewers

    it’s one of his favorite things

  • t

    That might mean something if you knew any of those things

  • Rogue cops cost us money

    Illinois gun laws don’t work except to fuck private citizens, But gang bangers get a free ride. This guy 2 fries short of a Happy Meal tried to sell it on line. This the first arrest like this that actually hit the papers.

  • PiggleWiggleGiggle

    It’s called the internet for a reason and you just proved my point. You don’t read and don’t research. So I’ll post the actual code explanations up so you can look like a further ass:

    Private Sales in Illinois

    Posted on October 9, 2014

    See our Private Sales policy summary for a comprehensive discussion of this issue.

    Any private (unlicensed) seller of a firearm who seeks to transfer a
    firearm to any unlicensed purchaser must, prior to transfer, contact the
    Department of State Police (DSP) with the transferee’s Firearm Owner’s
    Identification (FOID) Card number to determine the validity of the
    transferee’s FOID Card.1
    The seller must await approval by DSP before transferring the firearm.
    Approvals issued by DSP for the purchase of a firearm are valid for 30

    Exceptions to this requirement include: 1) transfers as a bona fide
    gift to the transferor’s husband, wife, son, daughter, stepson,
    stepdaughter, father, mother, stepfather, stepmother, brother, sister,
    nephew, niece, uncle, aunt, grandfather, grandmother, grandson,
    granddaughter, father-in-law, mother-in-law, son-in-law, or
    and 2) transfers that occur at a federally licensed firearm dealer’s
    place of business, if the licensed dealer conducts a background check on
    the prospective recipient of the firearm and follows all other
    applicable federal, state, and local laws as if he or she were the
    transferor of the firearm.4

    A private seller or transferor who complies with the law by
    determining the validity of a purchaser’s FOID card, will not be liable
    for damages in any civil action arising from the use or misuse by the
    transferee of the firearm transferred, except for willful or wanton
    conduct on the part of the seller or transferor.5

    DSP is tasked with developing an Internet-based system for private
    sellers to determine the validity of a FOID Card prior to transferring a
    firearm to an unlicensed purchaser.6 DSP is required to have this system operable by July 1, 2015.7

    Illinois has a separate private sales background check requirement at gun shows. See the Gun Shows in Illinois section for further information.

    The following Illinois laws apply to all firearm sales, regardless of whether the seller is a licensed dealer:

    Illinois law prohibits any person from knowingly selling firearms or
    ammunition to individuals who are ineligible to possess a firearm or
    who do not hold a Firearm Owner’s Identification (“FOID”) card. It is a
    Class 3 felony, for example, for any person to knowingly sell or give
    any firearm to any person who has been convicted of a felony.8 See the Licensing of Gun Owners & Purchasers section for information about FOID cards.

    Any person who transfers a firearm must keep records of all such transfers for a period of 10 years.9 See the Retention of Sales & Background Checks Records section for more information.

    All firearms sellers must abide by statutory waiting periods.10 See the Waiting Periods section for more details.

    Actually, as usual with Illinois law, it is contradictory, and MUST be taken in interpreted in light most favorable for the defendant. While one part of the Illinois code does allude to the requirement for private-to-private transactions to be first vetted through them, it also appears to allow the private seller to verify and document an Illinois gun permit license on their own. And criminal degree specifications and penalties appear limited against those that “knowingly” sell to another that are already prohibited by the state of Illinois to possess firearms (felons, etc). So, as usual, shut trap always talk to lawyer. Also, the interstate private sell (as long as the other state’s laws are not a fracked up as Illinois), is usually beyond any restrictions by Illinois, so leave the state to do it (but document the sale and the purchaser’s ID, to ensure you don’t get screwed by said purchaser for their mistakes). (Will look into Illinois state code later this week, curious….).

  • Excalibur

    Little t and JC don’t know how to do that thing called RESEARCH….they never have, and they more than likely never will. Sad, actually, that they try to be so knowledgeable when in fact all they do is show their incompetence…as you have just shown them to be in a most profound way!

  • Darthbiggles

    I clicked this link to read about how this man was entrapped, and all I got was inane ramblings. I have no doubt that the cops got up to some foul shit, as they are wont to do, but this is just opinionated, unreadable garbage.

    If you intend to be taken seriously as any sort of journalist, a certain degree of detachment is required so you don’t look like a raving lunatic, as you will look EXTREMELY willing to bend the facts to suit your agenda. Not saying that’s what’s been done here, but anyone who’s not entirely convinced of the evil police get up to, would not continue reading this for more than 15 seconds.

  • Darthbiggles

    You know, he could be wrong. But coming off like that is not a reasoned way to engage in any sort of argument, if you’ve any intention of actually convincing him to maybe change his mind on the matter.

  • adam

    terribly written
