Hempfield Felon Arrested in Police Social Media Sting
More media support for universal background checks. Personally, I wouldn't sell a rifle to anyone face to face without a bill of sale and a current LTCF.

Quote: Authorities used a tip about a Facebook posting to set up a gun sale in a Greensburg parking lot and arrested an admitted convicted felon, according to court papers.

Matthew Scott Campbell, 26, of 150 Manchester Drive, Hempfield, on Monday posted on the social networking site, “Anybody have any guns for sale,” state police at Greensburg said.

Police used the tip to contact Campbell, then arranged to meet him on Wednesday afternoon in the Gander Mountain parking lot off Towne Square Drive.

Now he faces criminal charges.

“We're very fortunate that we did get the tip about something like this,” state police spokesman Trooper Steve Limani said on Friday.

A Reading from the Book of Armaments, Chapter 4, Verses 16 to 20:

Then did he raise on high the Holy Hand Grenade of Antioch, saying, "Bless this, O Lord, that with it thou mayst blow thine enemies to tiny bits, in thy mercy." And the people did rejoice and did feast upon the lambs and toads and tree-sloths and fruit-bats and orangutans and breakfast cereals ... Now did the Lord say, "First thou pullest the Holy Pin. Then thou must count to three. Three shall be the number of the counting and the number of the counting shall be three. Four shalt thou not count, neither shalt thou count two, excepting that thou then proceedeth to three. Five is right out. Once the number three, being the number of the counting, be reached, then lobbest thou the Holy Hand Grenade in the direction of thine foe, who, being naughty in my sight, shall snuff it."
