postheadericon CA Gunman Was “Known Felon” Who Left Neighbors Uneasy

The gunman is Tuesday’s shootings was known to neighbors as a problem, and would often harass them. Furthermore, the gunman was said to have been shooting a lot lately, which raises some questions…

Brian Flint said he got a call in the morning that his roommate was injured and that his truck had been stolen. It turned out his neighbor was the gunman, Flint said.

“The crazy thing is that the neighbor has been shooting a lot of bullets lately, hundreds of rounds, large magazines,” Flint said. “We made it aware that this guy is crazy and he’s been threatening us.”

Living near the gunman was “hell,” Flint said, and the man was a known felon who often harassed him and his neighbors.

If a known felon is out shooting guns, that’s a red flag to anyone with half a brain, because it is illegal for a convicted felon to own firearms.

According to KHSLTV and neighbors, the gunman was out on bond for stabbing a female neighbor. Neighbors also say that they alerted law enforcement for weeks about the gunman’s behavior and his apparent shooting guns late at night.

The “known felon” comment could have come from the charges that the gunman was out on bond for, which wouldn’t make him a felon yet, because he was not convicted of any crimes. Whether his past shows any felony convictions is still unknown.

Witnesses said one man died in his driveway as a result of the first round of bullets. Neighbors there say they had been complaining for weeks about the gunman, who lived on the street, firing his gun late at night and early in the morning.

This story is developing and we will update this article as information becomes available.

postheadericon Bringing Your Firearms During An Evacuation: Does Anything Get Left Behind?

In the very real danger of Hurricane Irma for Floridians, many are –or have already– fleeing the most dangerous areas. Some of those people are under mandatory evacuation orders, while many others are heading north just to be on the safe side.

With it being legal to carry concealed for a 48-hour period during an emergency evacuation, what about other firearms that someone may have? Do they leave them at home, or take the whole cache with them?

Staying in possession of your firearms is important, and that means taking them along with you. There are numerous factors at play here, and we’ll just name a few things that could go wrong if you choose to leave them behind:

  • Your firearms could get damaged by water/wind/flying debris
  • Your firearms could (most likely) get stolen by looters who look to take advantage of disasters such as this one
  • You’ll be sad not knowing if they’re safe or not

Looting is a serious problem, both during and after hurricanes. These thugs will seize the opportunity to seize your firearms and ammo, because they know with great certainty that they’re left unattended.

If you absolutely must leave your firearms behind, make sure to have them hidden and as secure as possible. If it’s a built-like-fort-knox safe, the looters will likely not take the time to try and break into it and simply move onto the next house. If you are keeping them in a safe, make sure it’s one that is both water and fire proof.

And, bolt that mofo to the ground. Assuming the walls are still around to contain the safe, it’s better than someone(s) simply walking out of your house with everything.

We decided not to leave our area, but we’re also not in the current direct path of the storm. If we were leaving, or are leaving, all the firearms will be coming with us. It’s just safer that way.
