Self-Proclaimed Gangster Arrested Carrying Ancient Gun From 1858





Usually, the arrest of a gang member brings a sense of relief to the surrounding community, who can finally breathe easily now the felon’s reign of terror has been cut short. However, when the Fresno Police Department announced the arrest of a self-proclaimed gangster, nobody was quaking in their boots at the sight of the bad boy in question.

Local police stopped an admitted member of the Ruthless Thug Life Fresno Bulldogs on March 11. Amador Carlos Martinez told officers that he had a .44 Magnum under the seat, and was promptly arrested and booked for being a felon in possession of a firearm.

The Fresno PD’s Facebook page posted:

“On Monday, March 11, 2019, at 5:00 P.M. Southeast Special Response Team Officer Dillon Biggs and Officer Sukhbir Chauhan were proactively patrolling the area of Third St and Madison Ave in an effort to reduce gang violence and shootings in the Southeast Policing District. They initiated a traffic stop for a vehicle code violation. They contacted the driver, 19-year-old Amador Carlos Martinez, a self-admitted Ruthless Thug Life Fresno Bulldog Criminal Street Gang Member.”

The post revealed that Martinez admitted to Officer Biggs that he had a loaded 44 Magnum revolver that was kept under the driver seat. The suspect explained that the gun was for his protection against other gang members.

There’s just one little problem with this scenario: the gun in question was not, in fact, a .44 Magnum. It was a replica of a Remington model 1858 black powder revolver.

The brass-framed guns, which typically sell for around $200, often by mail order, are not regulated by the ATF due to the fact they are black powder. Further, the image released by FPD shows that the gun was not capped when the photo was taken.

As expected, netizens quickly roasted the “gangster.”

Some of the comments read:

“Who tf he beefing with? Abraham Lincoln?”

“I bet he yelled ‘What in tarnation!!!’ Right before he pulled the trigger.”

“Surrender thine currency and goods procured by the sweat of thine brow, good sir, lest I create in thine chest a hole larger thine mother’s communal flower.”
