According to the report, Jesse was a Jr. High School teacher. He was investigated to determine if he stole school property. It appears that the police got a search warrant and searched his home. They found
stolen school furniture and tools.
The headlines though, are not about a school teacher stealing from the taxpayers. Nope, he had
91 high-capacity magazines, with 48 fully loaded.
Now I don’t know how many magazines I currently have. They are not inventoried. I don’t know how much ammunition I currently have on hand. I do know that there are at least 7 30rd magazines for each AR and each AK style rifle. There are at least 6 magazines for the Glock and another 6 for the PC-9. But there are a boat load of magazines in and around the house.
I don’t know how much ammo I have. I measure ammo in “full cans” And there are more than a few “full cans”.
This doesn’t count the 100s if not 1000s of stripper clips that have rounds on them, nor the enbloc clips that have rounds in them.
All in all. More than zero.
This guy is in trouble for nine “illegal” assault rifles and 91 “high-capacity” magazines.
Normally I would just say to a person like that “Great start! Keep up the good work.” The stealing from the school sort of means I won’t.
Years ago one of my friends contacted me. The local school was disposing of dozens of old computers. They were being sent to the dump. He asked if we wanted any of them and we took a dozen or so, refurbished them, upgraded them and gave them to people that didn’t have computers.
I’m pretty sure we would have been accused of “stealing” if the admin had found out. It is actually the case, in many locations, that taking stuff out of somebody’s dumpster/trash can is theft.
