Dallas Weapon Cache Appears Legal

Or at least not illegal, from what is known. The automatic-style weapons are semi-automatic conversions, and the tenant isn't a felon and so isn't barred from owning them.

"They were legal, which means they were not fully automatic, and he was not prohibited from owning them, meaning he was not a convicted felon," Mr. Crowley said.

The grenades were hollowed out and thus inert.

Mr. Crowley did not have further details on the possible child pornography.

Chief Golbeck said, "Our child exploitation unit will follow up on that end of it."

It appeared Wednesday that the tenant may not face any charges for the weapons. Mr. Crowley said possession of the rocket tube might be a federal crime, but he wasn't sure.

"It still raises the suspicion: Why does a person have these types of weapons?" Chief Golbeck said.

Um, a Texan?

Eh. If he's clean, he's clean. If he's not, he's not.

Thanks to Snapped Shot.
