A Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Deputy has admitted he lied about an incident in which he claimed to have been shot from an open window in an apartment complex.
Angel Reinosa totally fabricated the shooting. He admitted to investigators that the claim was a hoax on Saturday, concocted because he had recently received unfavorable performance reviews related to his performance as a law enforcement officer.
Reinosa claimed he was fired at from an apartment building while standing in a Lancaster parking lot on Wednesday. First responders became suspicious of his story when he arrived at an emergency without any visible gunshot wound. He later admitted to investigators that he poked a hole in his uniform with a knife.
In a Saturday night news conference, Captain Kent Wegener made it clear that “there was no sniper, no shots fired and no gunshot injuries sustained to his shoulder — completely fabricated.”
Reinosa’s hoax set off a lengthy and complicated law enforcement operation hoping to catch the window shooter, who never even existed. The residents of a four-story apartment building were hassled and treated as criminals as cops searched for a supposed sniper.
In an embarrassing development for the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department, they tweeted about detaining two individuals for “being uncooperative” during the search for the fake shooter.
Cops also seized someone’s pellet rifle in a laughable attempt to find the “sniper’s” rifle.
*UPD* 2 adults detained re uncoop during operation, active search concluded, investigation ongoing & scene still active.

The agency now owes a sincere apology to the individuals it placed in custody, all on the basis of an elaborate hoax created by a deputy seeking to play the victim.
Reinosa has given law enforcement officers who obey their oath to serve the public a bad name. He’s been relieved of his duties, and it’s likely he’ll soon face criminal charges for his hoax.
Should gun control and “red flag” gun confiscation measures be enacted by the state of California, corrupt hoaxsters like Angel Reinosa will be given arbitrary power to unlawfully seize the legally owned firearms of American patriots.

Massachusetts Gun Store Remaining Open in Defiance of Governor’s “Non-Essential” Declaration
The Gunrunner isn’t closing its doors.
A Massachusetts gun store is remaining open even after Governor Charlie Baker labeled firearm retail establishments “non-essential” and directive them to close under the commonwealth’s state of emergency declaration.
John Costa, owner of The Gunrunner in Middleboro, believes that the Second Amendment provides his gun store with authorization to remain open.
Costa explained that “under the second amendment we have every right to defend ourselves,” justifying the operations of The Gunrunner. Business has been booming at the store according to Costa, with unprecedented amounts of gun purchasers patronizing the establishment despite Baker’s command that they stay away.
Baker expressed discontent at a Wednesday press conference upon learning that some gun stores in the commonwealth were remaining open.
“They shouldn’t have been open last week. The only folks on the firearm side that have been essential been in Massachusetts since we issued the initial order are manufacturers.”
Costa is practicing social distancing measures, as well. He’s not even letting customers to enter the physical space of his store. Instead, potential gun buyers are describing the kind of gun they want for Costa to bring it out to them curbside. It’s hard to imagine more stringent social distancing measures being utilized by any business, but it’s not good enough for the commonwealth of Massachusetts.
The store has received a cease-and-desist order from town officials after declining to close in accordance with state directives. Gun stores aren’t included as essential retailers in the proclamation issued by Massachusetts’ nominally Republican governor, and he’s going to greater lengths to close them than progressive Democrats in states such as New Jersey and California. Governors and sheriffs in both states caved when the Trump administration declared firearms retailers to be essential businesses under updated DHS guidelines, but Baker is steadfast in insisting that gun retailers close.
Americans have shattered previous monthly records for firearms purchases during the month of March, showing a desire to lawfully acquire arms that correlates sharply with the coronavirus epidemic. With an unprecedented demand for guns among the public, policy makers should think twice about arbitrarily demanding the industry shut down.
