Suspect in drive-by killing appears in court | HeraldNet.com - Local news Some 27 year old Boeing Everett employee goes on a drive by shooting spree, killing a young girl in Lake Stevens. The more I read that and similar articles, as well as a link to the police report (sorry, couldn't find it, perhaps someone can help?) I learned the following things: The investigation found .30 carbine bullets at the scene, and the rifling suggested an M1, a Ruger Blackhawk (never even knew .30 Carbine was available in a revolver) and a few other firearms I don't remember. That's about the last caliber I would expect to be used at a drive by. Turns out that the weapon used was the Ruger. Does anyone else find that choice as odd as I do? The police go to the Cabelas store at Tulalip, north of Everett, and get a list of recent customers who purchased firearms that had rifling which matched the bullets found. This has me struggling with the legality of this, and I asked someone at a range pro shop about this very thing today. He said that all they are required to provide is a copy of the 4473 once a particular serial number is provided. Now I haven't purchased firearms at Cabelas because it looks like a royal pain and I don't feel like spending an afternoon sitting around in the crowd, so could someone who understands how Cabelas manages their gun sale progress explain to me how this is possible/legal and will stand up in court? After jumping through the usual investigative hoops, apparently this fellow's name on the list of customers was the key detail, and based on that they tracked him down. I'm troubled by the Cabelas connection. I don't imagine that it's required of Cabelas to provide this information, but apparently they felt confortable doing it, and since they have a more complex sales process, the listing information I suppose could be compelled by court order.
