    What the OP is conspiring to do is to manufacture an illegal firearm. His asking for help is nothing more than looking for accomplices.

    My guess would be that the pizza shop guy was building and selling guns for a while. One of those guns most likely ended up in police custody along with it's owner. When asked where the gun came from...
