oregonlive.com – The machine gun, the prosecutor said, is “capable of killing a person from over a mile away, taking out the engine block of a vehicle, shooting through a brick wall.”
And Michael R. Emry’s intent, he said, was to get the stolen .50-caliber gun to the Malheur National Wildlife Refuge occupation.
“He couldn’t because of the law enforcement presence,” said Assistant U.S. Attorney Nathan Lichvarcik.
The prosecutor made the disclosures but provided few details during a federal court hearing this week in Eugene. Emry is being held on federal weapons charges.
