This is not Mr. Hernandez’ first IGOTD rodeo. Last time out we cited him for carrying his firearm in an unsafe manner. This time we’re calling him out for improper firearms storage. “New court records say that an associate of Aaron Hernandez told police the former New England Patriot put guns in a box in his basement after returning from the industrial park where his friend was fatally shot,” the AP reports. “An affidavit released by Attleboro District Court says Carlos Ortiz told investigators Hernandez put firearms in the black box after Odin Lloyd’s killing. The document indicates one was a small gun Ortiz handed Hernandez after they returned home with another associate, Ernest Wallace. Ortiz said he earlier saw Hernandez with an additional ‘’large handgun.’'” That last piece could well be the .45 caliber Glock 21 that the po-po would like to find in connection with the crime, to the point where they’re dredging a lake in Hernandez’ former hometown. And now . . . the gun’s disappeared! Although we don’t support mandatory safe storage laws (leading as they might to “safety inspections”), TTAG once again advises all gun owners to safely store their firearms. A gun belongs on your hip or in a safe. That is all.
