Oops! Dolphins quarterback's wife Lauren Tannehill leaves rifle in rental car
South Florida Sun-Sentinel ^ | January 15, 2014 | Lisa J. Huriash and Omar Kelly

Posted on 01/15/2014 8:32:12 PM PST by ConservativeStatement

A New York mom vacationing in South Florida was expecting a healthy dose of sun, surf and fun. Imagine her surprise when her daughter unzipped a bag in their rental Nissan Rogue and found a rifle — a big rifle. Looking just like the ones real soldiers use.

Horrified, she immediately called E-Z Rent-A-Car and then drove to the nearest police station.

Geez, I think I’d just have me a new rifle. You can bet the real owner ain’t gonna get it back anyway.

Can we have a list of FReepers who called BS when the story of the found weapon was posted?

‘Oh my God, it’s a gun.’ I said, ‘I think I’m going to throw up,’” Fleissig said. Fleissig said she and her daughter jumped out of the car to get away from the gun.

This is sad.

They jumped out of the car and ran away?? That is like running away from a rock because cave men used to kill each other. Do they think the rocks are going to jump up and grab them or hit them too? Pure and complete stupidity. Stupid people think guns can kill without human involvement, ignorant stupid people.

Don’t know why she put her daughter in an evil machine that kills 34,000 people per year. She should have let her keep the gun instead.

Looks like 8 or so, since the triple post seemed inadvertent.

LOL! Thanks G Larry. I may have been the first to post it the other day and it looked like there was a lot of flak flyin’ in the responses. I never implied true or false just weird. If my wife had a better AR than me..........then I’d be pissed. Especially if she left it in a rental. I feel so vindicated. :>)

Justin Lampert, an owner of National Armory, a gun store and gun range in Pompano Beach, said because there are “much better guns for defensive purposes,” this rifle is used mostly for collectors, gun-range enthusiasts and hunting, especially of boars.

This is just about as bad. It seems that Justin thinks that all branches of the U.S. Armed Forces have made the wrong choice on weaponry for our troups.

I would rather face intruders in our home with an AR-15 than almost any other weapon I can think of, including Joe Biden's shotgun.

Are they all retarded in New York? It was just a rifle, an inanimate object.

Hard to believe ANY newspaper would waste ink on a story like this.
But the fact is, all of them would.
I guess the operating principle is “If it shoots,it leads.”

That sounds like something that Johnny Manziel’s girlfriend might do.

How can a starting NFL QB let his pretty wife rent from anyone less than Hertz?

Absolutely pathetic. A gun can’t jump up and shoot you any more than a hammer left next to a box of nails and pile of plywood will just up and make a bookcase for you.

On the other hand, I suppose that’s a better reaction than “ooo! Hey, look what I can do! [bang]” But that doesn’t excuse acting like you found the ghost of Adolph Hitler in your rental car...
