I wish I could find an AR-15 or two laying around


Student Finds Assault Rifle In School Parking Lot
Rifle Left By Police Officer After Training

POSTED: 7:24 am EST January 24, 2006
UPDATED: 7:36 am EST January 24, 2006


FAIRFIELD TOWNSHIP, Ohio -- Officials said students at Edgewood High School in Butler County did the right thing Monday when one of them found an assault rifle.

Students were out of school Monday, so the Fairfield Township Police Department used the school's parking lot for training.

But when police packed up, an officer left an AR-15 rifle behind.

A student arriving on campus for baseball practice found the gun and turned it over to his coach.


The Fairfield Township police chief said the officer who left the rifle has an excellent record.

There is no word on any possible disciplinary action.

umm had to fix that

edit: and just because the press called it an AR15 doesn't mean squat...I think everyone here is fully aware of how gun-ignorant the press is.

Leave the lower on little blocks with every removable part stripped!

Holy shnikeys dont find one of those everyday! I would have assumed the AR gods gave me a present.
I could imagine the shitstorm this would have created if the rifle was never found.

Well, they did say AR-15...not M-16, so i am assuming its a semi....

Hell, they'll probably give the LEO a medal, and arrest the kid for having a AW in his posession on school property

they also called it an "assault rifle" which obviously means it's only for assaulting.

you and subnet are a couple of buzzkills.

This goes way beyond the "people make mistakes" excuse that could possibly be used. That guys was just a dumb ass.

Take it all except the stripped lower reciever on blocks, as was said.....that would have been too funny....

I know plenty of people (even a few cops) who would've done just that. The stripped lower goes into the ocean and the rest gets some duracoat.

Talk about an AR chop shop!

Even though it was misplaced, it would be listed as stolen by the police. Nothing gets a JBT's hackles up more than a citizen with a nice EBR. When you got stopped with an AR listed as stolen from the police you would be screwed possession of firearm during commission of crime (if select-fire) + possession of stolen property all in one package.

I dont think I could ever forget my AR-15. Its like leaving your arm or leg. Thats how much they cost these days.

Very true....I was speaking tongue in cheek...although, an stripped lower only costs around $200...

Its a lot easier when you don't pay for it....
Link Posted: 1/24/2006 1:32:10 PM EDT
Could have been a select fire. What are the chances the PR person incharge of that statement would have eluded to it being a machinegun vs. an AR15? Not very big.

Very careless. :\

"Excecllent record"

That just means that the officer was never tasked with anything remotely challenging or complicated.

So I guess if somebody finds your wallet and takes the money out of it, it's not stealing? You have your driver's license in your wallet and it all can be traced back to you. Same thing with a gun. It has a serial # that can usually be traced through transactions.

If you lost a gun would you not want it returned?

Biggest bunch of BS I ever read....

stripped lowers can be had for around $100.

Here's how the story will go...


The rifle was left there as part of an undercover sting operation. The Evil assault weapon was left there as a trap, much like a robotic deer that game and fish use to catch poachers. If the kid had put the gun in his trunk we would have arrested him in a second.

Unfortunately, the kid did the right thing and reported it, gosh darn it.

Not anymore

I would have kept the upper and parts as a finders fee..returned the rest(lower) and still keep the badge of honor as an upstanding citizen
