"A man identified by authorities as a West Philadelphia imam has been convicted of selling numerous handguns and assault rifles from a clothing stand he operated at 52nd and Chestnut streets.
A spokesman for the U.S. attorney's office here said a federal jury yesterday convicted Wayne Hogue, 47, also known as "Imam Wadir" and Shahdeed Bay, of selling the weapons and ammunition, including hollow-point bullets, between May 9, 2003, and March 23, 2004.
Authorities identified Hogue as "an imam of the 52nd Street Mosque," for which an exact address was not provided, as well as a convicted felon, which prohibits him from possessing firearms.
The nature of Hogue's previous conviction was not disclosed.
Hogue could not immediately be reached.
"Evidence at trial included numerous audiotapes of Hogue selling firearms to a confidential informant," according to Richard Manieri, spokesman for the U.S. attorney's office. Sentencing is set for December.
The weapons included two Norinko 7.62 mm assault rifles - one loaded with 30 rounds; three Berettas; a disassembled 12- gauge shotgun with a 28-inch barrel; a Colt .45-caliber semi-automatic handgun with the serial numbers obliterated; a Phoenix Arms .25-caliber semi-automatic handgun Raven model with three live hollow-point rounds in the magazine, and an AR-15 .223-caliber rifle with sawed-off barrel, serial number removed."
Wayne Hogue? THAT'S a moslem name? Well now. Anyhoot, Norinko 7.62's cannot be fed a 30 round magazine unless so modified, and but of course they are NOT assault rifles, just bad Chinese made longarms that are a cross between an SKS and an AK. The other weapons are a potpourri of what's available for anyone with some cash to burn, but aside from the Colt 45 ACP, not exactly what the professional criminal pines for. These are bottom-tier, petty thug guns, and that tells me Mr. Hogue is nothing more than a penny ante hoodlum.
How shocking. It becomes more and more obvious that there's no such a thing as a moderate moslem, just the one's that do the killing, the one's that do the instigating, and the one's who quietly finance the killing and the instigating.
I found the link over at LGF, and since Charles is a gun-hater extraordinairre, if there's more to come of this I am sure he'll bring it to our attention.

Can't find a picture of the Shadee Lady of Philly, but am on the case. Any bets on what part of the world originally sired this traitorous scum...
