According to the Journal-News of Middletown, Ohio, police found an arsenal of weapons inside the home of a Middletown man after he was arrested during an altercation with officers. WCPO.com said “He kept safes full of guns at his home that he inherited from his father.” [What did he inherit? The home? The safes? The guns? All of it?] Police found 20 weapons inside the home of William Jefferys [epic mugshot above], including “high-powered rifles, sniper rifles with scopes [not much good without them], night vision equipment and hundreds of rounds of ammunition.” Hundreds? <Gasp!> According to Det. Tim Meehan, there was a 100-round drum . . .
just inside the front door that contained .223 ammo, “which is for the high powered rifle.” Mhm. High-powered. Ok. Jefferys was arrested on charges including assault on a corrections officer, two counts of aggravated menacing, drug paraphernalia, loud noise violation [Ha!] and obstructing official business.
A 7-year-old student in Perry County, Pennsylvania was found with two rounds of ammunition at school recently. In a perfectly reasonable and sane reaction, the boy’s life was not ruined over the event. According to Cpl. Kenneth Tallman of the state police, the case would be closed and no charges would be filed, due to the child’s age and that the ammunition did not fall under the definition of a weapon on school property under state law. School officials could not be reached for comment, but hopefully their reaction was similarly measured. When good examples like this are seen, they need to be noted, and those involved held up as good examples to those who would overreact.
USA Brass in Bozeman, Montana was under investigation last week for possible violations of environmental laws. Jeff Martinez, special agent in charge of the U.S. EPA’s Criminal Investigation Division in Denver, confirmed that agents were searching the business after reports of violations of environmental laws, but would not comment on specifics. The company was fined in September of last year for exposing employees to lead. In October, some 22 employees were found to have elevated levels of lead. OSHA also found several other serious violations at that time, including failure to prohibit food and beverages from areas with excessive accumulations of lead, failure to perform required medical examinations, and failure to post required signs in hazardous areas. After the OSHA inspection last year, the company complied with federal agency’s requirements for several months, according to USA Brass CEO Zach Flanagan.
A man was arrested in Lancaster, Pennsylvania last week after he got “unruly” at a bar and threatened other patrons with a gun, and tried to attack responding officers with a knife. Employees and patrons managed to subdue Jason Bissell, 33, including removing and securing his SIG Sauer 9mm. While he was resisting arrest, proned out on the ground, officers saw him try to reach toward his waist. After managing to handcuff him, they found he’d been lying on top of a folding knife approximately 6″ long. Before placing Bissell in the paddy wagon, he was searched again, and that search turned up three more knives (so he’s like the edged weapon version of our Rabbi) and a box of 9mm ammunition. Police said that between gun magazines and the box of ammo, Bissell was carrying more than 100 rounds on him. He did have a valid permit to carry a concealed firearm, and to the best of my knowledge, there’s no restriction on bar carry in Pennsylvania.
MattV2099 tests a Red Hot Muzzle Brake in a bowl of Hoppe’s No. 9. That’s a spicy meatball. Haters, save it, please.
A couple weeks ago I featured Part A of Carnik Con’s AK-47s comprehensive showcase of AK variants. Tonight we’ve got the second and final installment in the series, including the music video for his song, Hold an AK.
