This is going on in Tampa within 200 feet of an Elementary School by convicted felons:

HILLSBOROUGH COUNTY --

Hillsborough County detectives have arrested 10 people for allegedly using a consignment shop as a storefront to sell assault weapons and drugs.

According to detectives, the suspects conducted the illegal transactions directly across the street from Gibsonton Elementary School.

After getting a tip about drugs at the shop, undercover detectives launched Operation Ceasefire.

They brought in hidden cameras as they made gun and drug buys at a consignment shop off of Gibsonton Drive. Over a six-month period, authorities say they were able to buy 34 firearms, 49 silencers and a variety of illegal drugs.

Parents and neighbors near Gibsonton Elementary school were caught off guard by the news.

"It's actually extremely surprising," said Rob Fernandez, a parent. "Thank goodness they caught it before it got any more serious."

Detectives say most of the transactions were happening when children had already gone home.

Some residents say they knew something weird was going on around the consignment shop because the store was so busy at odd hours of the day.

Several of those arrested in Operation Ceasefire are convicted felons.

Sheriff David Gee said with the national debate on gun control, the undercover operation is critical.

"With this national gun debate that's going on, I think this proves the point," Sheriff Gee said. "The real problem is the convicted felons that are out there."

Hillsborough detectives are still searching for three others who they say were involved in the illegal sales.

Arrest warrants are out for 49-year-old Michael Allen Fox, 53-year-old Edwina Hampton, and 23-year-old Amberlie Jones.

Hey Washington D.C., here is evidence to support GUN CONTROL ONLY EFFECTS LAW ABIDING CITIZENS.

I like the sheriffs statement "With this national gun debate that's going on, I think this proves the point," Sheriff Gee said. "The real problem is the convicted felons that are out there."

...LEO arrests them and Liberal Judges release them...the cycle continues until someone dies, usually an innocent citizen or an LEO. Felons with a history of violent crimes should never be let back on the street, ever! Locked up every day and made to work manual labor every day. Chain gangs, hard labor, cleaning federal lands, test dummies for whatever needs test dummies for.

I agree, my Dad was a LEO for Hillsborough County...that was his biggest frustration, he arrested the thugs and the lawyers and judges would just let them out. He had multiple death threats against him and our family and we ended up moving several times because of it.

You'll never hear this presented in a debate by a lefty. Let's see, how would it go. Oh how about this. "We should make more laws because the criminals aren't obeying the ones we have." Makes perfect sense to me.

You have to wonder why it takes 6 months to shut something like that down.

It took awhile for all their buddies to get in on the cheap guns.

for some, lawyers and the legal system that has been created with so many loopholes it nuts another is sometimes they have to ensure they get all the players and tracking this can be time consuming. I know of several that played out for years.

Exactly, the LEO's have to have a solid case with all bases covered to minimize the risk of dismissal.

Yes you will. They think that if all the guns are removed, there will be no guns to sell illegally. They will conviently forget that once law abiding citizens have turned in their guns that orgainized crime and gangs will still have guns...And if they cant get the guns they want here, fully automatic and more dangerous weapons will come back across the borders with the drugs.
