Guns Criminals actually use: 10AUG17 Edition


From the local PD’s facebook page:

On Tuesday, August 8, 2017, Detectives from the Fresno Police Department’s Career Criminal Auto Theft Team (CCATT) responded to a residence in the area of Thorne and Church regarding possible chop shop investigation. While at the location, they encountered Jerome White, 43, of Fresno. White was found to be a prior convicted felon and on CDC parole for robbery. During a subsequent search of the property, White was found to be in possession of a modified .22 caliber rifle. No evidence of chop shop activity was located.

White was booked into the Fresno County Jail for felony firearm possession charges and parole violation.

“Modified.” Specifically that is a Short Barrelled Rifle, possession of which is a felony in California, has been for decades. So lets see:

  • Felon in possession
  • SBR (felony)
  • Potential NFA manufacturing violation

But if we just had one more gun law…

I wonder if he bought this one from Leland Yee?
