ALEXANDRIA, Va. (WUSA) - An alleged white supremacist who has expressed hatred and support for violence toward a number of political figures was arrested Wednesday, accused of illegally obtaining a fully automatic AK-47, according to Neil H. MacBride, U.S. Attorney for the Eastern District of Virginia.
Douglas Howard Story, 48, of Manassas, was charged with making a firearm in violation of the National Firearms Act, which carries a maximum penalty of 10 years in prison.
According to court records, Story came to the attention of law enforcement through a confidential source who saw information Story had posted on an Aryan Nation website indicating that he was about to buy an AK-47 and have it modified to become fully automatic. Story allegedly said that he is planning on ambushing and murdering any law enforcement officer who stops him on the street if and when martial law is enacted in the United States.
Story has also allegedly made numerous statements on various white supremacy online forums, using the screen name "Confederate Brother." In these online forums, he continually ranted about his hatred of minorities, including his desire that President Obama and Attorney General Eric Holder be removed from office "with a 30.06."
Court records allege that Story provided a semi-automatic AK-47, along with $120, to undercover law enforcement with the intent that it be modified to become fully automatic. He was arrested Wednesday afternoon by members of FBI Washington Field Office's Joint Terrorism Task Force after allegedly receiving the modified weapon from an undercover agent.
