Police in Florida said three teenage boys were arrested after they entered U.S. President Donald Trump’s Mar-a-Lago resort with an AK-47 in a backpack.

Palm Beach Police Spokesman Michael Ogrodnick said the three 15-year-old boys jumped a wall at Mar-a-Lago while fleeing a police officer late last Friday.

The officer had approached the boys as they sat in a car a few miles north of the resort. The boys sped off in the car, trying to escape. They abandoned the car near Mar-a-Lago when they saw another police cruiser and escaped onto the grounds of the resort, Ogrodnick said.

. . .

The teens, who were not identified, are being held in a juvenile facility while prosecutors decide if they should be charged as adults. The teens have denied they owned the AK-47, saying they had found it.

but then Trump is cheap.

4. I don't see a problem with this. If they can carry an AK-47 at the grocery store, why can't

they visit their lord and savior Donald J. Trump with them slung over their shoulders?

7. They are too young to be in possession of a firearm without adult supervision.

They can't legally carry a firearm period.

I hear folks are more accepting of people roaming around those heavily armed.

12. Absolutely correct,

however, I think it's safe to say that these teens didn't have permission from their parent or legal guardian, and, I don't think for one second that these teens "found" an AK-47 just lying on the ground, I think they either stole it from one of their parents, or just plain stole it.
