  • Isn’t their something missing from that shotgun?and we’re those guns registered?we’re still looking for our stolen gun

    • The grip is missing. G-ma: Did you report the stolen gun? I discovered that the cops are really efficient in recovering legal stolen guns, registered or not. af

      • How would they recover a stolen legal not registered gun?

        • Lost Croat Outburst

          They would pick the gun up at the crime scene, regardless of legal status, and figure out the legal status from the serial number or lack of one, plus other evidence on scene.

      • I’m going to take a shot at this and say….it was found on their persons or at the location? Just a shot.

      • was my grandpas,handed down.and I understand back then they didn’t register them like now.the cop said we’d never see it again.bummer.i keep hoping.thanks AF

  • Honeydew Bridge Chump

    The eyebrows gave them away, in my opinion….

  • Mexican Familia would like to know what the eye brows have to do with anything ?good job pop I wonder if they are undocumented .ship them back as soon as they do all there time .hope they didn’t release them already if so they are already headed to mexico .

  • Gotta laugh at those who believe the 2nd, 4th, 9th, amendments are still being protected & secured by those we’ve empowered to secure it.
    If it were secured, they would face nuisance charges and have to clean up homeless camps or preppy parks for 3 months.
