SACRAMENTO, Calif. (AP) — When police responded to a report of shots fired near San Francisco in February 2011, they wound up in a standoff with 29-year-old Joseph Camilleri and his girlfriend. The two were barricaded inside a home with as many as 20 guns, including 12 illegal assault weapons and thousands of rounds of ammunition.
On Friday, federal and state prosecutors alleged that two of the machine-pistol type weapons were sold to Camilleri by a Sacramento County sheriff’s deputy abusing an exemption in state law that lets peace officers buy weapons that are illegal for civilians to own.
I am shocked..shocked, I say!..to find that California’s amazing web of convoluted and ignorant gun laws are being evaded.
There is so much fail in this article I don’t knwo where to begin…okay, yes I do:
“…exotic weapons including .50 caliber handguns, semi-automatic versions of Uzi-style submachine guns, and pistols that shoot high-velocity ammunition used by the U.S. military.”
If I could do it, I would gather a couple million people to put on their heaviest boots, stand on the fault line, and jump up and down until that state slides into the ocean and Nevada becomes beachfront.
