Fairlington Resident to Fisette: Major League Arms Dealer Operating Out of Fairlington


Hello,

AY attended last night's Fairlington monthly civic association meeting where County Board Chairman Jay Fisette was being grilled about the Pike Streetcar after doing his usual  civic association PR pitch promoting  the Pike streetcar.

Suddenly, out of the blue, a Fairlington resident asked Jay: "What can the County do about the arms dealer who is selling major league weapons out of his Fairlington townhouse/" Jay's response: "Oh we know about him, he tried to start a gun store in Nauck."

Jay then promised that he would definitely "do something" if the Fairlington resident contacted him. Consternation among the audience.

But of course County Government knows all about the arms dealer, since he has a business license from Commissioner of the Revenue Ingrid Morroy and has to pay personal property and business taxes to Ingrid and County Treasurer Carla de la Pava. Arlington Police are obviously good buds with the arms dealer, as is ATF which licenses him. An ATF Class III firearms license (machine guns) is pretty tough to get. If (as the Fairlington resident complained) the arms dealer is dealing with the Pentagon he may be dealing some serious artillery, above and beyond machine guns.

But what else could Jay say? County Board Member Libby Garvey, who despises guns, was in the audience.

Stay tuned to Saturday's County Board meeting for further developments.

Cindy

"Use Permit? What's a Use Permit? Mr. O'Leary and Ms. Morroy never told me I needed a Use Permit".

Jay blamed the usual suspects, Republicans in Richmond and the NRA.

You have to wonder how many urban hipsters are growing marijuana at home, selling it to their family friends, and operating as businesses licensed by Arlington County.

I am a consultant operating out of my home and no one from the County has ever asked me any questions about what I am doing...all they want is their business taxes and personal property taxes on the PCs and office equipment I use for consulting.

You have to wonder how many home escort services are operating in the B-R corridor licensed by the County.

Same Arlington Democratic Party / County Government Regime that lobbies Richmond to close the 'gun show loophole'?

Frank, Carla, Ingrid and Jay only care about taking as much as they can from businesses of all kinds to finance Jay's extravagant projects.

You gotta wonder what's going on in the basements of the 8,000 square foot McMansions.

County tolerates all kinds of 'stuff' in order to obtain the tax revenue for Jay's extravagances.

Can't get a use permit to pursue your business interests? No problem, just pay your business and personal property taxes and we'll ignore what you sell from home.

I am building a fully functional replica of a German WW2 88 millimeter antiaircraft gun, and the fully functional ammunition to go with it in the basement of my 8,000 square foot McMansion. So there.

Go you one better. I am building a fully functional replica of a Predator drone and the fully functional missiles that go with it in the basement of my 10,000 square foot McMansion.

The Democratic ward heelers who micromanage Fairlington for Jay pretended to be surprised.

Jay can't be picky when it comes to revenue from local business. How else is he going to come up with $150 million to build the Gerald J. Fisette Aquatics Center in time for the 2024 Olympics?

I am restoring a MIG 17 fighter in the basement of my 12,000 square foot McMansion. Homeland Security and FBI don't care as long as you are a U.S. Citizen.

A-Town use permit renewal...what a hoot. Yeah, Jay must really need the $$$ from sales tax and meals tax to fund his extravagant agenda.

I would like to know why A-Town hasn't been closed down for repeated violations of the fire code and ABC regulations.

Fisette to Fairlington: What can we do? Our hands are tied. The NRA and Republicans in Richmond can do as they please with guns in Arlington. Now back to micromanaging the renovation of McKinley Elementary School.

Democrat-controlled Fairlington civic association and Fairlington Villages condo association allow this to happen.

Democratic Party has controlled the Fairlington civic association and all the Fairlington condo associations for decades. It's no longer a political party, people, it's a Regime.

Why does anyone need firearms in this area of Arlington on the Alexandria border when the Arlingotn Police are 2 minutes away in Shirlington and the Alexandria Police are 2 minutes away in West Alexandria?

This activity could not have gone one, apparently for years, without the Fairlington civic association being aware, since it micromanages everything for the Democratic Party.

Meanwhile, construction workers from miles away show up at the Abingdon School playing field to play soccer on weekends and scare women and kids who live in the neighborhood away.

Just what we need -- a Fairlington Yuppie Daddy with a concealed permit pulling a .45 on a group of Latino males who are drinking beer and playing soccer.

A-town are A-holes. Latest antic is to tell anyone who isn't young and trendy that all tables have been reserved. So if you are a minority or disabled or even over about 45 don't bother with lunch or brunch at A-Town.

No, a Fairlington Yupster Daddy who has PTSD and major mental issues (Semper Fi) blowing a few inebriated Latino soccer players away with his .45

I made a reservation at A-Town for Sunday brunch at 11 AM..Arrived at 11 AM and they could not find a record of my reservation. I'm 55 with gray hair. That happened twice. I now have Sunday brunch at Uncle Julios across Fairfax Drive.
