Cop says gun sales legitimate
According to court documents, a police officer who Montgomery County has accused of misusing taxpayer money to sell cheap guns to hundreds of public safety officers said he has done nothing wrong and was only acting as a good businessman, the Washington Examiner reports.
The county is suing Det. Aaron Bailey, a member of the county's police firearms unit, saying he ran a training company that improperly sold guns at steep discounts to the public safety officials who took the classes through the county's publicly funded tuition assistance program.
But Bailey, through his lawyer in a recent court filing, said he has committed no fraud, and that the "incentives" he sold at large discounts or gave away, such as semiautomatic handguns or rifles, were a legitimate business practice to increase the number of customers.
