PTC Teen Runaway Armed?

In the AJC yesterday it was reported in the police blotter that a teen was arrested on Monday.

Apparently he had been missing since Friday when he showed his mother a gun and then ranaway.

Does anyone have any more information on this? Is this worthless thug still in police custody?

How could an armed thug be running loose in this city without any citizens being notified of the danger?

Soooo....we really do need a license to carry be safe from the out of control kids here...greeeaaattt!

News flash, criminals do not follow the rules, that is what makes them criminals, they break the law.

This is one reason I have a concealed weapons permit.

Taurus Millenium 9mm, 11 rounds of jacketed hollowpoints!

God bless the 2nd ammendment.

Carry permit not needed in your home, car, or place of business. I do however have a permit.

I will need one to walk on the cart paths though. This kid was on the loose for a weekend. If ever there was a time when the chief should have been grandstanding in front of the camera's, this would have been it. To warn us all of the true danger it sounds like this kid presented. Back to Autrey's I go. More lessons and more guns, and 70(?) bucks for a permit.

Are you people serious? I've seen 10 or so posts with the word "kid" in it followed by words like "gun", "Glock", "danger", etc. I didn't realize this was a forum for tough talking gun nuts afraid of children. If you wanna have the right to talk as if you live in a dangerous place, move to South Central L.A. or Darfur. The only real danger us PTCers face is being shown up by our neighbors when they get a new car or swimming pool.

I'm not sure why you decided to comment on an old story.

These "children" are actually teenagers who have been born and bred by careless uninvolved bedwetting parents who never spanked them. Some of them do have guns that have been provided by their "parents" (using the term very loosely). These "parents" have completely abdicated their authority, because it is easier than enforcing rules, and handing out discipline. So the rest of us get to deal with the completely anti-social behavior, such as the new story of teen violence in the paper currently.

Hopefully they will find you and your home before they find mine.

Thanks for the reply. Even though we disagree I appreciate your response. Didn't expect to arouse such ire, however. You must have been the victim of a horrible assault from some grade-schoolers in the past...maybe when you were in school;) Seriously though, I just felt talk of guns was a bit over the top when talking about the state of affairs in our beloved PTC! I guess vigilent citizenry accounts for some of the blessing we do enjoy here! Oh, and by the way...teenagers already have found and destroyed my home but not in the way you meant Smiling

*laughing* it sure seems that way doesn't it?

Welcome to the wonderful world of the Citizen blogs, LordByron!

"Tough talking gun nuts afraid of children" is a wonderful summation of a substantial minority here. I figure there's a whole lotta overcompensatin' going on.

Don't begrudge these boys their weapons, though. Most of 'em don't seem like could last 30 seconds in a fistfight. Smiling

Thanks for the comments. It cheered me up to realize I wasn't the only one who thought these folks were a little excessive.!

I resent the term Firearms License. We do not need a license to own or carry a firearm in our homes, cars, or places of business. That terminology is misleading. You do however, have to have a permit to carry a firearm on your body in a public and on your body and anywhere else in your vehicle other than a glove box. Who is the twit that dubbed a carry permit a firearms license?

Thanks for the details on how to apply.

The only guns I presently own are my grandpa's shotgun that was given him when he was about 12 (1906?) and a Civil War replica smoothbore.

I've thought a lot about getting serious about gun ownership--to have something in my home for greeting uninvited guests.

But I don't know much about it.

My brother-in-law is the clean-cut type who might have gone into law enforcement. Instead, he works for the Florida Freshwater Fish and Game Commission. He has a friend--a straight arrow like himself--who has a carry permit. The guy was pulled over on a traffic violation not long ago. First thing out of his mouth was: "Officer, I am carrying a handgun in my car, and here is my permit."

The officer apparently freaked out, ordered him out of the car, searched him, and basically treated him as a potential cop-killer.

I do not recall the details of the story, as to hos things transpired beyond this.

But were I to buy a handgun, carry it in my vehicle, and have a carry permit, how should I reveal all of this to a police officer in the event that I am stopped?

In the VERY unlikely event that you are stopped in your vehicle by a leo (law enforcement officer) while transporting a weapon on your person or within arm's reach, here are the simple actions you should take which will put the officer at ease.
1. Before they reach your vehicle, roll down all tinted windows (even untinted is recommended), turn on all interior lights if at night or twilight, and then place your hands palms down on your dash. Make eye contact with the officer and tell them straight away that you have a weapon xxxxxx (xxxxx being the location). I have found officers to be very appreciative 100% of the time. I am convinced that these actions directly got me a verbal warning one night in Texas after "slightly" exceeding the posted speed limit.

I don't believe in GA you need any type of permit to have a gun in your vehicle. I'll say this, if I'm stopped, I wouldn't mention it. Smiling
