    Really hard to understand the full story, but if the victim was truly a victim, seizing both his weapons is BS.

    Don't ever get into a shoot out, live, and not expect the investigation to include the seazing of weapons during the investigation. Always have a BUG at home. If their are no charges to Mr. Carswell, he should be able to carry a different gun or purchase for that matter.

    I am not a lawyer nor play one on tv....
    "Laws that forbid the carrying of arms...disarm only those who are neither inclined nor determined to commit crimes...Such laws make things worse for the assaulted and better for the assailants; they serve rather to encourage than to prevent homicides, for an unarmed man may be attacked with greater confidence than an armed man."

    "The tenant then told deputies that London was out of bullets"

    What a goof. Coming expecting a gunfight and not bringing any extra rounds. Surprised he's lived 66 years.

    Regardless, sounds like a good charge to me.

    Why did the tenant ditch the gun in the briar patch? It was clearly self-defense. Stolen gun? Prohibited from possessing?

    Landlord told the officer he ditched the gun in briar patch, while the tenant told the officer the landlord gave the weapon to a relative. Tenant got his gun confiscated by popo
