Virginia Man Linked To Aryan Group Pleads On Gun Charge

Play associated audio

A man from Manassas, Va., pleaded guilty to illegally possessing a machine gun following an undercover investigation in which he allegedly made racist comments on white-supremacist websites.

Douglas Story made headlines two years ago following a dispute over his license plate. In 2010, Virginia's Department of Motor Vehicles recalled Story's personalized license plate 14CV88.  The plate was an apparent coded reference glorifying Adolf Hitler, with 88 considered code for Heil Hitler since H is the eighth letter of the alphabet.

The charges against Story in federal court in Alexandria result from an investigation in which Story sought to have his AK-47 assault rifle modified to fully automatic. Story admitted today that he paid $125 to people working undercover to have his rifle modified.

The initial charges against Story allege he made comments wishing for President Obama's assassination.
