Thank God that the judge saw through the bullshit and granted him bail.
He was so fucking dangerous that he was denied bail at first but now a Federal Judge granted him his freedom for only $100,000?
Let's see, that's $10,000 cash bond and the deed to his house or business.
Fuck, I could even bail out for that.......
Yeah. I'm thinking these charges will either be dropped or seriously reduced.
Fuck you, Mikey.
A federal judge Wednesday granted bail for a Modesto gun shop owner arrested last week on suspicion of selling guns illegally to undercover agents.
Robert John Ronning, 42, of Salida was being held at the Sacramento County Jail. His attorney, Adam Stewart, said Ronning was expected to post $100,000 bail by Wednesday night.
Stewart said one of the conditions of his release is Ronning cannot be near guns, so he won't be returning to the gun shop for now.
Ronning's wife is expected to take the reins of the business and reopen the gun shop at some point, Stewart said.
Ronning is scheduled to appear in federal court again Sept. 17 for a preliminary hearing.
Ronning was arrested on suspicion of illegal gun sales, including the unlawful transfers of unregistered gun silencers and a machine gun, according to the U.S. attorney's office in Sacramento.
He is a federal firearms licensee and owner of Ronning Arms Inc. in the 2000 block of Yosemite Boulevard, just west of El Vista Avenue in east Modesto.
Federal prosecutors said Ronning sold two gun silencers, seven assault weapons and a machine gun to undercover ATF agents and others posing as Mexican citizens without identification at the Yosemite Boulevard business.
The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives is leading the investigation.
