Los Angeles Police Seize 388 Guns from One Man

SAN FRANCISCO (Reuters) - Los Angeles police this week seized 388 guns from one man, more than were recovered in the city all last year, a police spokeswoman said on Saturday.

Police seized 11 guns on Thursday from the car of Wayne Wright, 56, along with another he had illegally sold to an undercover officer. After his arrest, police searched his home in the nearby suburb of Simi Valley and found 376 more firearms.

"Last year there were 348 firearms seized (in Los Angeles). This year there have been 411, including the 388 that were seized from Wayne Wright," Officer Sandra Escalante said.

"There were rifles, shotguns, handguns and assault weapons" recovered from Wright's home, Escalante said.

A silencer and thousands of rounds of ammunition, including armor-piercing rounds, were also recovered from Wright's home, Escalante said. Possession of a silencer and armor-piercing bullets are felonies in California, she noted.

Wright is not a licensed gun dealer and may have been engaged in illegal gun trafficking, the Los Angeles Police Department said.

As noted before, we are our own worst enemies.

Clearly he decided that the laws didn't apply to him. Bad sales, silencer, cripes, as long as we are here we have to be a LOT careful.

Armor piercing bullets are illegal?

What about the surplus black tipped 30.06 Garand stuff?

What is an armor piercing round, anything bigger than 9mm?

Years ago they banned the further sale of AP rounds, so if owned prior to the ban they were okay to have.
