    Story on Yahoo

    So, Coffee gets arrested for speeding without a license or registration and they find a loaded automatic pistol in the car cocked and ready to rock.

    Guy's got issues. Glad we didn't draft him.

    ...what the hell happened? I thought this guy quit the NFL to become a pastor? Almost feel bad that the 9ers waisted a draft pick on him...almost.

    C'mon guys, cut him a little slack. He must have been running late to a tent revival and dinner on the ground. :kitten:

    It's not an automatic pistol, and as scary as they make it sound, I and damn near everyone I know carry more firepower around with me daily.

    Nothing about that pistol is automatic. Locked and loaded is the way to carry anyway, and that's not even illegal, if you've gone through the paperwork (which he appears not to, I guess). He basically did nothing illegal, insofar as the gun is concerned, except for perhaps not getting his CHL (which makes him a dumbass, but hey ...).

    I'm not really that up on gun laws but I believe the way he was carrying it in the car was illegal under Florida law. IIRC, in Florida in a car, the gun must be encased or not readily accessible for immediate use or something like that.

    If he had a CHL, that wouldn't be an issue. Here in TX, you don't need a CHL to carry locked and loaded in your vehicle.

    Moral of the story: Know the firearms laws of the state you are in.

    That's it right there. I just love how they sensationalize the reporting. It's a "black", "automatic" pistol, LOL. It's a freakin' .380. My cousin just bought a pink one to replace her .38 revolver. So if this was a pink pistol, I wonder how they would have reported it? And they obviously don't know the difference from automatic and semi-auto.

    Having an automatic pistol might be fun, though. Inaccurate, but fun.

    Didn't beretta make a model 92 with a fold down lip under the frame and a skeleton stock that had a full auto option?

    *edit - it was the M93. It had 3 round burst.....

    To be fair I've heard semi-automatic pistols referred to (granted erroneously) as "automatics" my entire life.

    We can add :

    1)Don't speed if you don't have the registration for the vehicle you are driving.

    2) Don't speed if you don't have proof of insurance.

    3) Don't speed if you're illegally carrying a firearm.

    4) Get a radar detector

    I've heard of a story where a guy thought it was safe to play russian roulette with a gun because it was a semi-auto. He went first.
