U.S. v. Jennings (9th Cir. - Feb. 4, 2008)

Assume you're a convicted felon, and hence precluded from owning a firearm. Which of the following would be a bad idea:

(1) Taking a picture of yourself with a firearm.
(2) Leave the picture in an impounded vehicle for the police to find.
(3) When the police pick you up, initiate a conversation, sua sponte, in which you say "If this is about the missing serial number, I didn't know it was missing."

Right. All of 'em. Just ask Devin Jennings.
