The homeowner learned from his credit card companies, the cards were used to buy $20,000 worth of guns online which were due to be shipped to a local gun show for pickup. Investigators say when Hudson arrived at the store, the orders had already been canceled. The AFT says in the past, Hudson has been linked to guns found during criminal investigations.
