  • Don’t believe everything that you read. In my defense I wasn’t in pin possesion of any of those weapons that police found in a apartment above my apartment on high St. How can u charge a man for something that u find in a 36 unit apartment complex especialy when his is clean with nothing illegal in it. Not one bubullet or bud.

  • I would be much more afraid of the AK than the sawed off shotgun. Not that either one should be illegal, but in a gang type fight in a residential area, an automatic AK can kill people blocks away inside homes, the shotgun is only going to kill within 10 feet or so.

  • LOL @ the newspaper hyping up the “illegal assault weapon” thing- which is a California only law – when no one mentions the sawed-off shotgun with a barrel shorter than 18 inches- a Federal offense illegal in all 50 states- sitting right there at the top of the picture.
