Man Arrested With Semi-Automatic Rifle and Ammo Outside Oswego Walmart

Mason K. Dunne, 21, of Pennsylvania was charged with two felony counts for weapons and one misdemeanor.

A Pennsylvania man is being held on weapons charges Wednesday morning after Oswego police stopped him in the parking lot of the Route 34 Walmart with an AR-15 style rifle, 12-gauge shotgun and ammunition.

Oswego Police responded to Walmart at about 8:07 p.m. Tuesday for a report of a man with a weapon in his vehicle. Upon arrival, police met with a witness and were informed that Mason K. Dunne, 21, of Pennsylvania, allegedly had an AR-15 style rifle in car.

Police located the vehicle in the parking lot and found Dunne in the car. Dunne was removed from the vehicle without incident and during a search of the vehicle the AR-15, 12-gauge shotgun and ammunition were located.

Captain Jeff Burgner said they had not counted the ammunition yet, but there was a "significant amount" found. 

During the course of the investigation it was determined the weapons allegedly had been reported stolen during a burglary in Upper Allen Township Pennsylvania, said Oswego Police. It was also determined that Oswego was simply a stop during Dunne's travels to another state and there was no indication that there was a plan to cause violence in Oswego.

Police also determined that Dunne had a no bond warrant for his arrest out of Pennsylvania for possession of a stolen firearm.

Dunne was charged with one count of unlawful use of a weapon by a felon (Class 3 Felony), one count of aggravated unlawful use of a weapon (Class 2 Felony) and one count of unlawful use of a weapon (Class A Misdemeanor).

Dunne was transported to the Kendall County Jail and bond is set at $75,000.

The author had to correct calling it an assault weapon, and did. Read the top. She stated she corrected it.

That is why the permit restricts exposing it. In Texas it allows stopping someone stealing your property. Too bad the fruit cakes on here won't like that.

No. The .223 caliber is too light to use on larger game effectively unless you get perfectly placed shots. A higher caliber Bushmaster is designed for deer, elk and moose hunting. The CT murderer used a lightweight caliber rifle. Wood stocks are heavier. BTW. NO ONE. Uses rifles to shoot birds.

Stay the h..ll out of the second amendment and I'll be nice. I never post on these fruity forums. BUT the gross ignorance is pathetic here. Women are the worst. Get some brains on the topic instead of "gee it's scary". The worst mass killing in a school in the US was done with home made explosives. About double the fatalities and were little children.

Oh a nice little quote from Mrs Marxist Clintonista. It takes a village. No, it takes one person able to defend themselves to stop a criminal.
resolutely john doe December 27, 2012 at 03:36 AM
We know that. We also know that it is a rifle with adequate power for small game hunting. A shotgun with certain loads could be more deadly.
resolutely john doe December 27, 2012 at 03:47 AM
Thank you for your service and your sane remarks. You are exactly right. The no gun zones attract all the illegal mass shootings. People that don't make an effort to learn and keep some self defense for their home are dumber than dirt, and that is a fact. The posters here are ignorant and call things assault weapons. A knife is an assault weapon. A 20 year old in Japan killed nearly 50 people in a village in the night, with a knife and a machete, be headed his grandmother. He didnt want to be heard committing murder.

The only true liberty is the right to defend yourself with words or a weapon. Your illness is a willingness to strip that liberty in the name of the hitlerite in the White House. No one is suggesting insane people be licensed to do anything. The rest of us have a right to defend ourselves from burglars rapists and the tyranny you are suggesting.
resolutely john doe December 27, 2012 at 03:56 AM
YOU are wrong. YOU have no idea what this gun is designed for. You think citizens do not have right to defend themselves? This rifle is a Rifle. Not a machine gun.
resolutely john doe December 27, 2012 at 04:00 AM
They are so incredibly ignorant they make me ashamed and embarrassed a. To be a woman. B. to be an American. Totally ignorant thinking and willingness to destroy the Constitution protection of our rights.
resolutely john doe December 27, 2012 at 04:03 AM
He didnt. His passenger went into the store and reported him.
resolutely john doe December 27, 2012 at 04:06 AM
These posters are arrogant condescending know it alls that will willingly become the brown shirts for their master. FEAR THEM. They have no respect for the Constitution. They have zero knowledge of guns or the mass murders committed in other countries without guns.
resolutely john doe December 27, 2012 at 04:07 AM
Good luck. These posters let their kids use pacifiers when they are old enough to walk and talk.
resolutely john doe December 27, 2012 at 04:09 AM
Who said we did or ever will? Keeping a tyrannical government at bay that wishes to ban bullets is the best reason for gun ownership. This crowd here is definitely in that tyrannical category.
resolutely john doe December 27, 2012 at 04:11 AM
A hummer is designed to go at convoy speed. The brown shirts here would still ban them.
resolutely john doe December 27, 2012 at 04:17 AM
What is wrong with you? When I was a little girl we all played cowboys and Indians with cap guns. My high school had rifle club as a PE elective. It was once a week at an indoor range. I loved it. The program was in place for years. NO ONE before during or after became a murderer. I think people who fear guns are absurd. I won't have anything to do with them. This is one of the key items that guarantees liberty, freedom, and civility. FACT.
resolutely john doe December 27, 2012 at 04:23 AM
If you know ANYTHING you know that high powered assault rifles are already illegal. This item of discussion IS NOT high power or an assault weapon: it is a varmint .223 caliber rifle. Not appropriate in caliber for deer hunting.
resolutely john doe December 27, 2012 at 04:28 AM
Wrong. The intent is to be protected from a tyrannical government. Hand guns won't do that. If the founders thought so they would have specifically said right to bear pistols. I don't have to succumb to any other version, unless you sickos manage to legally amend the constitution.
resolutely john doe December 27, 2012 at 04:31 AM
Liberals always use character assassination because they don't have intellect or logic to make credible points. That would be you. No snide intended. Just the facts mam.
resolutely john doe December 27, 2012 at 04:34 AM
So, amend the constitution.
resolutely john doe December 27, 2012 at 04:36 AM
There is an asinine assumption that the murderers mother did not have a locked gun safe. I will be surprised if that turns out to be the case.
resolutely john doe December 27, 2012 at 04:37 AM
The stupid CNN reports use the terms interchangeably in the same article. They are the problem.
resolutely john doe December 27, 2012 at 04:42 AM
Thank you for your service and relevant comments. These people are jerks.
resolutely john doe December 27, 2012 at 04:48 AM
Lets stop with the attempts to make all of us feel guilty for something we didn't do or agree with. You are exploiting and insulting.
resolutely john doe December 27, 2012 at 04:49 AM
Because we are in the midst of a very tyrannical movement from the whitehouse down to people like you who don't get it. HISTORY.
resolutely john doe December 27, 2012 at 05:07 AM
No question they miss the point. Intentionally and ignorantly.
Tom Adamski January 02, 2013 at 05:18 AM
Statistically, more people are killed by drunk drivers every year than those killed with guns... Yet anytime something happens with a gun, whatever the style or caliber, all the liberal bed wetters want to reign in gun control on the lawful citizens that have them. Stop crying and figure out a way to get them out of the hands of the criminals. Impossible? Maybe, but disarming and regulating the lawful people is sure spinning your wheels in the wrong direction.

I Am a Peaceful AR-15 Assault Rifle Owner I am an American. As such, none of my rights depend on a showing of need. I am a free man who has the right to define and pursue my happiness in any peaceful way I see fit. The government does not grant me rights. I was born free. The legitimate role of government is to act as my agent to protect my rights; which exist independent of government. Americans do not beg the government for rights nor are they required to demonstrate a "need" for rights... http://attorneyforfreedom.com/index.cfm/g/articles-by-marc-victor/f/peaceful-ar15-owner.htm

It amazes me that some people expect others to give credence to their opinions yet they can't even write simple English correctly especially since there is such a strong nexus between language and cognition; "perinoid"?! "warrent"?! "hunt...birds with"...Holy dangling prepositions, Batman! WTF?! Just wait until the Rothschilds, Schiffs, Rockefellers, DuPonts, Goldmans, Sachs, Morgans and the rest of the Bilderbergers, CFR, Federal Reserve, Trilateralists , etal implement the rest of their plans for a so-called NWO (refer to the back of a 1 dollar bill and read the Latin, if by some miracle you're up to it). You'll wish you hadn't traded so much freedom for what you mistakenly believed to be security (see Churchill, Winston). Yes, continue to "freak out" and cry for abolition of guns every time some whacked-out a-hole does something stupid. Real criminals will not surrender their weapons and guns lend themselves to prohibition about as well as alcohol did. Unfortunately for those who think it's fine that no one have a gun except for our "government", guns can be made with cheap plastic and a 3D printer and ammo is commonly homemade as well. Still, keep trusting our "leaders" and the others who "run the show". They've proven themselves over the centuries (heh). "Hope" and "Change": 2 disconnected buzzwords that are just about all tat's required to keep most sheeple mollified for at least 8 years or so.

"...just about all THAT'S required to keep most sheeple mollified..." Now they've got me doing it....
