It’s not just anti-gun liberals who suffer from firearms ignorance, it’s also the police in Ramsay County, MN. A man was arrested and charged with 2 felonies for being in possession of short-barreled shotgun and a machine gun. The only problem for the prosecutor in this case is that the machine gun is just an ordinary semi-automatic rifle and the shotgun is actually a pistol. Even crazier, it took authorities almost 3 months to figure this out.
The Twin Cities Pioneer Press reports that this ridiculous story began last March when Christopher and Lisa Stowe’s 13-year-old son allegedly threatened to kill a classmate at school. The police interview the son and he said he didn’t mean to make a threat and would chose his words more carefully next time. The cops decided and a judge agreed that this was grounds to get search warrant to raid the Stowe’s home. Police found several firearms including two they were sure were illegal.
