The gun wasn't loaded. The magazine did have 5 rounds in it but it wasn't in the gun and no round was in the chamber. This 'almost complies' with our STOO-PID™ Laws. The problem is the loaded magazine, that's a no-no. Otherwise it basically complies with transporting a weapon and its ammo and any lawyer would beat this charge.
I have no idea of what that's supposed to mean. I have more than enough firearms, and I can use them. Eev to protect property and I don't have to retreat.
What we the sheeple can't do is (cough) 'legally' carry a loaded weapon.
No he didn't. And there's no 'special permit' for anyone. What he had was a job for a security company licensed to have armed security guards. And he apparently went through the training (I guess -LOL) and passed the qualification test to be an Armed Guard (ok stop laughing). But anyone can transport their firearm(s) to 'their job' (like at a Gun Shop) or to anywhere - just not loaded and ammo separate.
We do not have any Assault Weapon Ban -- period. So I don't know where this came from. (either he was drunk ;-) or the source was wrong.
The boyz in da hoodz fave handgun is the 'Glock 40' - as in Glock .40cal S&W (don't know that model number sorry). But a S&W .40cal is okay too, or any expensive handgun in .40cal S&W. The days of 'cheap handguns' is looong gone. The fricken 16yo gang-bangers make more in a week than a union plumber. (YouTube Vids can be found of these mutts waving those pretty guns and wads of cash around)
Excellent point about the cheap handguns, there's no such thing any longer that I'm aware of. I remember many years ago the term “Saturday Night Special” and those were truly cheap handguns, nothing but junk but they'd fire a round most of the time.
If it was up to Obummer there’d be no hand guns in the country and probably no long guns but fortunately it's not up to him and he'll have a dang hard time trying to take them.
