A Manassas man accused of being a white supremacist was arrested Wednesday by members of the FBI's Joint Terrorism Task Force after allegedly receiving a fully automatic AK-47 from an undercover agent.
Court records show Douglas Howard Story, 48, of the Manassas area, allegedly provided a semi-automatic AK-47, along with $120, to an undercover law enforcement agent with the intent that it be modified to become fully automatic. He then allegedly received the modified weapon from an undercover agent and was subsequently arrested, according to the U.S. Department of Justice.
U.S. Attorney for the Eastern District of Virginia Neil H. MacBride and FBI Assistant Director for the Washington Field Office announced Story's arrest Wednesday. He has been charged with a violation of the National Firearms Act – a charge that carries a maximum penalty of 10 years in prison.

Douglas Story made the news back in 2010 after the license plate on his truck (pictured above) was recalled following a complaint by CAIR. Story laughably claimed that the 14 and 88 on the plate had no Nazi or white supremacist implications but were merely a homage to his favourite stock car drivers. You might think that nobody would be stupid enough to swallow this nonsense, but you'd be wrong. Robert Spencer of Jihad Watch indignantly defended Story in a piece headlined "Hamas-linked CAIR smears anti-jihad Virginia driver as neo-Nazi", before being forced to back off when Story's actual political beliefs were exposed.
