A Tec-9 is a semi-automatic pistol, not a "submachine gun", unless it's somehow been converted. I would want confirmation of that before reporting it as such.

Yeah, but calling it a "Sub-Machine Gun" will get the anti-gun lobby stirred up. You know the drill, "More Gun Control Laws!".

Dino,

You got that right, and this is an excellent illustration of why more laws is not the answer. There are already plenty of laws on the books re felons not being able to own guns, and this guy's house is full of them. Criminals do not obey rules and laws, that's why they're criminals, they do what they want, how and why they want. They're not interested in society's overriding concerns. Gun control laws only affect law-abiding citizens who would not commit crimes with the guns anyway.

Why was this guy offered bail if he is a parole violator?

The Tec-9 is NOT a submachine gun. The Tec-9 is based on the pattern MG-9 which was a full auto submachine gun. The first model was called the KG-9. In the 80's the BATF forced Intratec to make the Tec-9 semi-auto. The closed bolt model is the KG-99, and is NOT a submachine gun. The one this man had was most likely the KG-99, NOT a KG-9.
