“Sheriff’s deputies seized several guns and about 1,000 rounds of ammunition from the Isla Vista apartment of a UC Santa Barbara student who was arrested after he said he accidentally fired one of his firearms at home….” Unfortunately, that wasn’t the home of vindictive virgin Elliot Rodger two weeks ago. Instead, it was the home of Kevin Tym on Tuesday. He’d just sent a round through his neighbor’s apartment. They say the key to comedy is timing. Given recent events in Isla Vista, you can probably understand why no one was laughing . . .
Deputies went next door and questioned 21-year-old Kevin Tym, who allegedly admitted that he was playing with his legally-owned Glock 17 and accidentally fired off a 9mm round.
During a search of his apartment, deputies found and seized seven firearms and hundreds of rounds of ammunition, including a high-capacity assault rifle magazine.
All of the firearms were legally owned by Tym, deputies said.
Emphasis on ‘were.’ Now that he’s facing a charge for his negligent discharge, Mr. Tym will have a helluva time getting them back. One thing he will be getting, though, is some IGOTD hardware, but we wouldn’t suggest relying solely on that to defend yourself, Kevin.
