Battle Creek man arrested with assault rifle trying to get onto a bus


BATTLE CREEK (WKZO) -- The Calhoun County prosecutor is trying to determine if a man who was arrested at the bus station in Battle Creek with an operational SKS-assault rifle in a carry-on bag should be charged.

The butt of the gun was sticking out of the bag, prompting several calls to 9-1-1.

The gun owner claims he was trying to transport it to Lansing so he could sell it.

The City’s Gang Suppression Unit responded and took the 25-year-old into custody seizing the gun and a fully loaded magazine.

He has not yet been charged. It wasn’t exactly a concealed weapon and it wasn’t loaded but it quickly could have been.

But there is also the 2nd Amendment which gives American’s the right to carry guns.
