    Dolphins QB Ryan Tannehill’s wife leaves her AR-15 in rental car

    "The wife of Miami Dolphins quarterback Ryan Tannehill returned a rental car in South Florida with her AR-15 rifle in the back seat, police said. [ ... ] Hours later, the car was rented to Judith Fleissig of New York, who discovered the $2,000 weapon a couple days later. “We got out of the car, we were kind of freaked out,” she told the newspaper. “I didn’t want to touch it. I took a picture, zipped it back up and went to the police station. They came out and took it.”

    Yep, the rental car company thoroughly cleaned the car before renting it again

    AND all involved were so very aware (several days later) of what was around them/in the vehicle....Not.

    Wonder if she will get her rifle back or face some obscure charge.

    I love it when people "freak out" at the sight of an inanimate object. I wonder if they also worship at the feet of idols.

    If you are not responsible enough to remember to take your firearm out of the car. Then you are not responsible enough to have it. That's just stupid.

    Perhaps she wanted to make it a gift for the next renters ! Enjoy your new AR ... I would have.

    Begging your pardon, are you saying that you'd commit the crime of Theft of Lost or Mislaid Property?
    I know you must be just pulling our collective legs.

    Yeah, I fussy about ARs ... likely would not want that model.

    Likely did not have a compass in the stock.

    If this happened every now and then, I agree with you. But, we all make mistakes. Even though she forgot to remove her firearm from the car, that does not mean she is not responsible enough to have it.

    There is no requirement for someone to be smart to own a gun ... a firearm is just an object. Most folks that cannot own know that they cannot have it and should not take it.


    Stupid? Sure. Criminal? No. Lets not make it so.

    "lets see...I have my scope, my shooting gloves, my shooting glasses, my shooting earmuffs, my shooting ear plugs, my shooting skin cream, my shooting hat, my shooting shoes, my shooting ammo, my shooting brass catcher, my shooting scarf, my shooting face cream (its different), my shooting spotting scope, my shooting notebook, my shooting gun tool kit, my shooting video recorder (in case I want to tape my great shots), my paper targets, my shooting guidebook, my NRA tee-shirt, my shooting tape recorder, my shooting mirror (to put on my face cream properly), and my shooting all-purpose bag with a zillion other shooting products....so I am READY TO GO SHOOTING !"

    20 minutes later ... "oh crap"

    In some states mere possession would be criminal.

    Lets be serious here. Are you stating it was a crime or that a crime occurred?

    An AR? Lemme think... Maryland, California, Connecticut......
    Depending upon configuration, specific model, year produced/acquired... you could easily go to jail for having an AR.

    Didn't you follow the link? She's blonde and cute.
    Questions answered. That was her rental car OC gun. Sounds like it was in a softsided camo case - probably zebra stripe with hot pink piping - blends into any background.

    If not criminal its dam close.

    What about the person who rented the car after. Not that there any smarter, not noticing a rifle in the car for a couple days. But what if they were stopped by officer friendly. And they ended up getting arrested for the weapon in the car.

    I will say they have to share the blame for not checking the car before leaving in it. But a very real possibility depending on where they were.

    It was drilled into my head at a young age about being responsible with firearms. And even if you say its an honest mistake, its a mistake that you should know better than to do.

    If it is criminal, it shouldn't be. It is simple negligence. If anything bad happens, she should be held civilly liable.

    In the freedom loving, non-communist, State of Florida, it's perfectly legal to have a long gun anywhere in the car. Heck you can have it sitting in your lap if you want.

    That was my first thought that was unrelated to blue jeans.

    I'd give her free lessons.

    I too was mostly focused on the fine quality denim work of the blue jeans but did see the grip out of the corner of my eye. Sadly, i cant afford to give her lessons.
