    Father finds cache of weapons, ammunition in girl's treehouse

    Her very own militia?

    South Florida Sun-Sentinel 7:13 AM EDT, April 23, 2008

    ENGLEWOOD - A father on Florida's southwest coast made a surprising find in his daughter's tree house _ a cache of weapons and ammunition.

    Thomas O'Connell of Englewood called the Charlotte County Sheriff's Office on Monday when he found a bed sheet stuffed with guns, bullets and knives in the tree house. Investigators say the stockpile included a sawed-off shotgun, folding knives, ear plugs and more than 340 rounds of ammunition.

    A sheriff's office spokesman says O'Connell's 13-year-old daughter wasn't involved in stockpiling the weapons. One of the guns was reported stolen from a Port Charlotte home in December.

    Why does it say "guns" (plural), and then only mentions one firearm?

    Anyway, I don't believe there should be a lower age limit on the right to keep and bear arms anyway...

    And I thought I had it all when I carried my Red Ryder up in my treehouse

    Sooooooo your tree house was a girl free zone, eh? Did you ever get married/have a girlfriend? I wonder if there is an analogy here.

    Fort Pierce grandma gets loaded mystery gun away from grandson, 3

    FORT PIERCE A Fort Pierce woman driving around Sunday morning looked in the backseat to find her 3-year-old grandson playing with a loaded Smith & Wesson revolver, according to a Fort Pierce Police report.

    The 48-year-old woman managed to grab the gun from the boy before he was injured, and she drove home and called police, according to the report.

    An officer examined the .357 Magnum found it contained six bullets, according to the report.

    The woman suggested her son might have been responsible for leaving the gun in the backseat, but he denied any involvement, according to the report.

    The firearm was placed into police evidence as part of an ongoing investigation, according to the report.

    IIRC, there were two 9mm's as well. One pistol and one carbine.

    "Who?" "ME?" "Oh hail no officer, wouldn't have dreamed of it!"

    What do you bet Sonny will be replacing his .357 shortly?

    Boy, it's just raining guns over there. I wonder if someone reinforced that treehouse with steel as well?
    Gun control can be blamed in part for allowing 9/11 to happen.
