Gun Criminal Tahmooressi Released

The weapons and ammunition confiscated from Andrew's Tahmooressi's vehicle.


A jailed U.S. Marine veteran who spent eight months behind bars in Mexico for crossing the border with loaded guns arrived back in the U.S. Friday night.

A Mexican judge ordered the immediate release of retired Marine Sgt. Andrew Tahmooressi on Friday, according to family spokesman Jonathan Franks.


  1. Wonderful news! Tragically, I fear the guns will never be returned.

    Still, this outcome is probably the best that could realistically have been hoped for.

    1. Yup. And that display will probably, sadly, freak out a lot of the holopophobes here--It's an arsenal! Looks to me like an anemic trip to the range for the handgun and shotgun, and enough for a fun afternoon shooting the rifle.

    2. And since they are being kept by the Mexican government, there is decent chance they end up in cartel hands.

    3. "Looks to me like an anemic trip to the range"

      I agree. I didn't think it was an outrageous amount of guns and ammo. But, driving around California with that in your car is a bit no-no.

  2. A guy crosses an international border with a loaded weapons. What did he expect?
