These weapons and hundreds of rounds of ammunition were seized during a search warrant served at the home of a suspected spousal abuser, now turned repeat weapons violator. The suspect has a very violent past, including many assaults with firearms, and had served prison time for voluntary manslaughter. He was also reported to have shot it out with police in the past! Needless to say, we were relieved to get these weapons out of his hands! #onemoreforthegoodguys
