Ummm, that looks like a modern Auto-Ordnance replica. Barrel length gives it away, unless it was converted to a full auto form.

Another one of those "oooo, scary gun!" moments. Not supporting the parolee in this matter, but no need for ignorant propaganda from a sheriff's office.

Sure looks like it has a Bullet-Button plate on the right side, forward of the trigger guard (where the left side than has an additional plate, where the machine screws go through to the other side). That's even the modern Doskocil case they came in.

So let's get this straight... you have a guy with a couple of Uberti Single-Action Army replicas, a Henry or Uberti Lever Action...

...and then he just happens to have what is clearly a semi-auto Kahr/Thompson modern .45ACP Carbine, converted to full-auto - and he kept the bullet-button device on it?

Now he might be in trouble for having not registered it if that's the case, and it's still sporting a pistol-grip, forward grip, with bullet-button, but I highly suspect that thing is not full auto.

Should change title to:

"Dumb LASD Finds Bullet-Buttoned Semi-Auto Thompson - Thinks it's Full Auto".

Ah, AM radio tells me that Twitter had a fail today - turns out it was about as big as LASD's description of this collection.

They left out a key detail, was this the parolees residence? Not ever being on parole or closely knowing anyone who was, what are the rules on that? I assume if you are that you cannot have weapons in your residence, but if you own firearms does that bar you from having family/ acquaintances on parole in your home? Unless this is the parolees residence, they are very likely not even their weapons. In that case this would be extremely misleading.

Truly fully auto weapons are so rare - especially in CA, that whenever the press talks about a "machine gun" or "full auto" being found, I just translate that in my head as "scary black rifle" was found.

I didn’t see full article (uninformed “information” unsettles my gut), but to your point, if it’s listed as, or Big Sister has “reason” to believe it’s a residence of the dude in question, the residence is subject to a no warrant search, which would then, at a minimum, make it “fair” game for whatever they wish to throw against the wall in their quest for control...strike that...”common sense enforcement.”

If Trump can’t block people on twitter then why can government organizations delete comments?

Stupid cops. If they knew what they were doing it would take three seconds to determine if it was full auto or not.

It is easy to determine if it is full auto by handling the weapon. You can not determine if it is full auto by looking at pictures. There are too many "Experts" that can make that decision by looking at a picture!

Yes, I was looking at older threads of bullet buttons on Thompson’s, and all the pics show something on the other side from what we’re looking at.

But that vertical piece,above the front of the trigger guard, whatever it is, doesn’t belong there. So most likely some sort of bullet button contraption.

I mean yes there are some dumb crooks,but one dumb enough to leave the bullet button while converting to full auto? Possible , I suppose, but not likely.
That’s not even to mention the goofy long *** semi automatic barrel still on it.


And while we in fact may not know if it is actually full auto by looking at the pictures, the gun certainly doesn’t need to be fired to test that.

Unless someone did a lot of fancy reengineering, if it still closed bolt it’s semi auto.

What the right side of a semi automatic Thompson is actually supposed to look like:

Maybe he is a cowboy action shooter with Al Capone tendencies?

The LASD should focus on cleaning up their little internal gang and corruption problem. The twit BS statement leaves out a lot of details, but the guns and ammo likely belonged to someone other than the parolee, which is why you should never allow a felon on your property, especially one on parole. Also no mention of high capacity magazines, so the Thompson mags are probably blocked at 10 rounds.
