Too Many Assault Weapons in… Knoxville?

We’ve seen stories like this from the land of John Timony in Florida. Maybe he has a relative working in the Knoxville PD, or perhaps the anti-gun people are hard at work there too.

“We have traffic stops and find rounds or magazines or weapons in cars where there is a group of people in the car.”

In the past, he says police would find someone with a handgun that might hold 8 to 10 rounds, now they are facing assault weapons capable of holding 100 rounds in a single magazine.

“The guys that shoot these high capacity weapons just spray them in all directions and that is obviously an extreme danger wherever this happens,” said Hoskins.

Hoskins says people who carry such weapons are a major threat to police and the public.

Geez, I hope Hoskins doesn’t intercept any of the gun bloggers headed to Coal Creek today. He’ll crap his pants.

  1. Notice they didn’t say they actually found one of these 100rd magazines. Beta-C’s run about $200 or so? A little expensive for your average gangbanger. And if they actually pulled someone over that had a Calico M-900, I’d eat my shorts.

    Any weapon used in an assault (see WEAPON and ASSAULT).

    A crime of violence against another person. Assault refers to the threat of violence caused by an immediate show of force. Assault is often defined to include not only violence, but any physical contact with another person without their consent (i.e. Pushing, Slapping, Hitting, and Spitting)

    Webster defines it as “an instrument of offensive or defensive combat.” Thus an automobile, baseball bat, bottle, chair, firearm, fist, pen knife or shovel is a “weapon,” if so used.

  3. i was comming home late from work the other night (after midnight)… drove through the taco bell drive through, then through the parking lot of the store next to it so that i could get to the road to go home… in the parkin lot was a GPD (greensboro PD) officer, changing his tire on his patrol car with one of those crank jacks… so i stopped and offered him my hydraulic jack…

    about 3 mins into it all, i realized that the ammo can full of .22 and 12ga shells in my trunk meant that i had more ammo on me than the cop did… i was giddy for the next week

    imagine the horror if the news knew…
