BALTIMORE (WJZ) — A man who police say is a member of the Dead Man Incorporated gang is now behind bars after he was arrested for trafficking guns in Maryland.

Dana A. Lank II has been charged with the illegal possession/sale of an assault weapon, being a prohibited person in possession of a rifle/shotgun, and illegal possession of ammunition. He could also face additional charges.

The Maryland State Police Gang Enforcement Unit and the Maryland State Apprehension Team began their investigation into Lank earlier this month after learning that he was involved in the illegal sale of guns.

Authorities later found that he was converting semi-automatic rifles to fully-automatic, and illegally selling regulated assault rifles.

Lank was stopped for a traffic violation in Wicomico County, and during a search of his vehicle, authorities report finding an SKS assault rifle.

That led investigators to serve search warrants at Lank’s home and a home in Berlin that was connected to Lank.

During their search, authorities report finding a modified, fully-automatic Heckler & Koch assault rifle, a sawed off shotgun, a .357 magnum revolver, a Grendle assault rifle with no serial number, various rifle and shotgun parts and five ammunition cans filled with rifle and shotgun rounds.

He is being held without bond in the Wicomico County Detention Center.

    Obviously this cannot be true. He is a gang member and it is illegal for him to even possess firearms so how could he be trafficking them? According to the left if guns are illegal then gun crimes will end so it cannot be possible for this man to have guns when he is banned form owning them. /s
    This is a perfect example of why a gun ban would not stop people from illegally owning guns. It will only stop law abiding citizens from being able to protect themselves. Clearly a complete gun ban against this individual didn’t stop him from obtaining and selling illegal guns. It amazes me that these people believe that banning certain guns would solve the issue of gun violence. These folks either cannot accepting the self-evident reality that gun bans don’t stop gun crimes or their motives are more nefarious. Since I don’t believe that they are idiots, then I’m left with wondering what their nefarious intentions really are.
