If there’s one thing the internet’s got in spades, it’s jokes about fools who got caught lookin’ silly. These days, you might just be one fail away from being the subject of your own viral social media thread.
The latest victim? A self-proclaimed gangster called Amador Carlos Martinez, who was recently pulled over by Fresno Police and was subsequently arrested for possession of a firearm.
What makes the case unique, however, is the TYPE of gun that Martinez had on him. Specifically, a Remington Model 1858 Black Powder Revolver.
According to the Fresno Police Department’s Facebook page:
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.
Martinez admitted to Officer Biggs he had a loaded 44 Magnum revolver under the driver seat. Martinez said he possessed the firearm for his protection against other gang members. Martinez was arrested and booked into the Fresno County Jail for being a felon in possession of a firearm.

Naturally, people had jokes.
So many jokes.
Seriously, the comments thread on this is a goldmine.
I’d feel bad for the guy, but he is a convicted felon, so… I’ma keep laughing!
