Look closely at the headline: it says “Idiot” gun owner of the day, not “Irresponsible.” I’ve created the new category – however temporarily – because there’s a difference between being an idiot and being irresponsible. It’s hard to describe, but you’ll know it when you read it. “Police said a man caught last month using a law-enforcement shooting range at 1 a.m. was rearrested Monday when officers seized more guns and narcotics at his northwest Fresno home,” fresnobee.com reports. Get my drift? If not, the Bee and TTAG reader FTA lay it out for us along with a couple of TTAG exclusive photos of the gun haul . . .
Sgt. Jerardo Chamalbide said Jason Adams, 23, was first arrested on gun and drug charges April 24 after officers got a call about an unauthorized person shooting at the Fresno County Peace Officers Range near Herndon Avenue and Highway 99.
Police said Adams, who was shooting an AK-47 at the range, also had a shotgun and possessed hashish and methamphetamine.
In a follow-up investigation, officers from the Street Violence Tactical Team served a warrant Monday at a home in the 1500 block of West Sierra Avenue, where Adams lived, Chamalbide said. Seized were a 7.62 mm rifle, a sawed-off shotgun, a .38 caliber revolver, a 9 mm handgun, ecstasy and methamphetamine.
Take it away FTA:
And that’s why you don’t go to the PoPo range in the middle of the night to shoot an AK while possessing meth and hash, in California no less. To be fair, the article calls his AK a rifle which is not correct. Looks like a pistol with a bullet button to me which is legal in California, until a magazine over 10 rounds is inserted (stupid ass laws in our state). Even worse, after being booked and released, this guy got raided a few weeks later where police found a sawed off shotgun and more meth. You would think that he would have done some serious housekeeping after the initial arrest.
