It's unnerving to know that scenarios like this are playing out in South Jersey neighborhoods. There are certainly more. David Bibler and Francis Hillsee are just the latest to get caught. Kudos go to federal and local law enforcement for getting these illegally manufactured and distributed guns off the street.
