Boston Police report officers responding to call about a person with a gun on Brenton Street this morning spotted a guy running away:

Upon arrival, officers observed the suspect, later identified as Rahjah Guillaume, 22, of Dorchester, run from the scene in the direction of Glenway Street. As Guillaume was running, officers observed a firearm fall from his person, onto the ground.

On catching up with him, officers arrested him on charges of unlawful possession of a firearm and unlawful possession of ammunition, police say, adding the Smith & Wesson revolver was loaded with two bullets.

Innocent, etc.

Check for a time machine at the young offender's domicile, Deputy Barney Fife might have some explaining to do.

who brought him to justice, Wyatt Earp?

Lucky for everyone involved, the gun did not go off — its flintlock was jammed.

One with more safety and security features than a floppy or elastic waistband.

Inflation it out of control, guy couldn’t even afford all 6 rounds.

To the town of Agua Fria rode a stranger one fine day
Hardly spoke to folks around him, didn't have too much to say
No one dared to ask his business, no one dared to make a slip
For the stranger there among them had a big iron on his hip
Big iron on his hip
It was early in the morning when he rode into the town
He came riding from the south side slowly lookin' all around
He's an outlaw loose and running, came the whisper from each lip
And he's here to do some business with the big iron on his hip
Big iron on his hip
In this town there lived an outlaw by the name of Texas Red
Many men had tried to take him and that many men were dead
He was vicious and a killer though a youth of 24
And the notches on his pistol numbered one and 19 more
One and 19 more
Now the stranger started talking, made it plain to folks around
Was an Arizona ranger, wouldn't be too long in town
He came here to take an outlaw back alive or maybe dead
And he said it didn't matter he was after Texas Red
After Texas Red
Wasn't long before the story was relayed to Texas Red
But the outlaw didn't worry men that tried before were dead
20 men had tried to take him, 20 men had made a slip
21 would be the ranger with the big iron on his hip
Big iron on his hip
The morning passed so quickly, it was time for them to meet
It was 20 past 11 when they walked out in the street
Folks were watching from the windows, everybody held their breath
They knew this handsome ranger was about to meet his death
About to meet his death
There was 40 feet between them when they stopped to make their play
And the swiftness of the ranger is still talked about today
Texas Red had not cleared leather 'fore a bullet fairly ripped
And the ranger's aim was deadly with the big iron on his hip
Big iron on his hip
It was over in a moment and the folks had gathered round
There before them lay the body of the outlaw on the ground
Oh, he might have went on living but he made one fatal slip
When he tried to match the ranger with the big iron on his hip
Big iron on his hip
Big iron, big iron
When he tried to match the ranger with the big iron on his hip
Big iron on his hip

Where's the change? Guns EVERYWHERE in our neighborhoods where Google generally advises the college students not to go.

Does it date from before 1898? He might not have even needed a permit!

Revolvers were in service with USAF Military Police from the early 1950s to the early 1990s. Remember, it's not the number of rounds a pistol carries that makes a handgun effective it's the training of the shooter. Specifically, it was the Smith & Wesson K-38 Combat Masterpiece, Revolver Model 15.
