Skip to comments.Shotgun executive taken into custody at Colo. gun show on cabbie terror tip
Posted on 05/20/2013 3:16:21 AM PDT by lowbridge
Daniele Perazzi, president of the Italian Perazzi Shotguns firm, was taken into custody yesterday by Adams County Deputies [see update, below] along with several prototype shotguns. The executive was picked up in the parking lot of the Denver Merchandise Mart, hosting the high-end Colorado Gun Collectors show this weekend, after a taxi driver, likely reacting to a suspicious activity reporting outreach program conducted by law enforcement, told authorities he thought he could be transporting an armed foreign speaking terror suspect.
He loaded prototype shotguns into the cab on the way to the Merchandise Mart, gun rights activist and newly-elected National Rifle Association Director Steve Schreiner, who is attending the event this weekend, told Gun Rights Examiner this morning. The cab driver notified law enforcement he suspected he had a terrorist in his cab, and they were waiting to intercept him, evidently oblivious to the fact that he was arriving at a highly-publicized area gun show.
He has two lawyers, Schreiner continued, one of whom went to the police station, and convinced the police that the owner of one of the most expensive shotgun companies in the world was not a terrorist.
Perazzi was released a short time later and his prototype shotguns were returned to him, but reports have emerged that he was ordered by law enforcement to leave the state by nightfall, and sources tell Gun Rights Examiner he has gone one step further and left the country. He is expected to be returning soon with an eye toward filing legal action.
Gun Rights Examiner also spoke this morning with one of the two attorneys involved with helping Perazzi straighten matters out to obtain his release.

Well, that’s what you get whenTotalitarian Statists win elections.
We understand that Colorado has been overrun with Big-Government loving refugees from the gulag that used to be the great state of California, but we all need to do a better job of explaining to them why their state became a soviet socialist prison that compelled them to leave in the first place.
Big Dollar Laws suit has a nice ring to it
This is Bull-&@it!! They knew what they were doing. Harassment of traditional values. State of Colorado getting back at gun owners-shooters for the bad press they have received for passing ass-h&le laws, forcing Mag-Pul to leave.
In Colorado? More likely an OWSie between unemployment gigs.
He should explain that becase just facilitating Joe Biden’s advice to everyone that they only need a shotgun.
Actually, the Denver and Boulder area are infested with Muslims. It is believed there is a pretty active terror cell in the Denver area. In recent years, a muslim was arrested from the area on his way to carry out an attack in NYC, I believe. He and his dad.
Why is anybody doing business in CO? Pack up and leave. Starve the beast.
great, when loony Rocky Mountain high hippies get to call in people who are of substance
I wish I lived in a free country.

I’d say there is a contract of carriage violation right there. Sue the cabbie and the cab company.....BIG TIME.

Colorado: The Maryland of the West.
Our son is a 2X All-American in Trap shooting, shoots Perazzi shotguns. I cannot tell you how good this family (and their American importer, Gaicamo) is and has been for shotgun shooting sports. Their guns are works of art. It is sad what America has become.
I don’t understand this.
How did the cab driver become aware that his passenger was transporting shotguns? Did the passenger announce this? High-end shotguns like Perazzis break down and can easily be placed in relatively small cases that would not give away their presence. Why would Mr. Perazzi announce the presence of such a valuable cargo? It just doesn’t make sense.
