Man arrested for allegedly selling ghost guns in Paterson, authorities say


A man has been arrested for allegedly selling ghost guns, specifically AK-47s, in Paterson, according to Passaic County Sheriff Richard Berdnik.

Edward F. Austeri, 32-year-old, of Paterson, was arrested while traveling from New York City to New Jersey on Tuesday.

Detectives received information he was in New York City and enroute back to New Jersey. They set up surveillance at the Lincoln Tunnel in Weehawken and intercepted the vehicle that he was inside, authorities said.

Austeri was wanted for selling, manufacturing, and shipping ghost guns by the Passaic County Prosecutors Office.

    Bad part about all this is that it's not like you have an oppressed citizenry fabricating an arsenal to fight off an aggressive government. These are guns that are being put in the hands of sick people living in the depths of darkness, ending lives wastefully.

      or criminals unwittingly doing a society a favor by killing other criminals (unless when innocent bystanders get killed like that kid from HARP and that girl a few years back). Too bad hoods are terrible shots
