I am not a felon, but not enough guns.
My thoughts only, don't bet the farm on them. KT

Notice that it is all rifles and shotguns but can't see an assult rifle in the picture.

Glad all of you don't think I'm for gun control, but actually I am. I want to control 1 of each model

I dunno Kenny...looks like there might be a few in this area:

A USAToday news article said he was charged:
Fernandez was arrested on charges including being a felon in possession of firearms, possession of an assault rifle, being a felon in possession of ammunition and possession of large capacity magazines,


Being Calif tho, there's no telling what their definition of an 'assault rifle" is nowadays. Might be just any .22 semiautomatic or 12 ga autoloader....

Wonder if he had a Taurus Judge .308/M16/Mini 14 combo automatic lever action revolver designed by Wilson?

I want one of those......the sad part is the guns were probably throw ed in the back of a truck, taken and destroyed. Like they did something wrong. Almost compared to catching a felon and loading every appliance up in their house and destroying them. :(

Don’t you know you have to me a mega rancher/farmer to afford one of those jtrent. Maybe one day. I’m with you on the guns. They should be auctioned with the proceeds helping to pay some of the expenses incurred from keeping prisoners incarcerated. It could all been done with appropriate licenses or background checks. I have no problem with either. Guns could quite possibly generate $500k or more. Instead someone will probably be paid to destroy them. Double whammy.

I think your right. But it's a wonder they didn't call them all assault rifles.

A couple years ago the local Sheriff's department advertised over 200 guns they had confiscated. But you had to be a dealer to bid. A local gun shop bought them. I bought 4 guns and gave them what they paid for all of them. A Colt Python alone brought more than the county sold all of them for.
