STOCKTON (CBS13) – Two people were arrested after officers conducting a traffic stop overnight located a handgun and nearly 3,000 rounds of ammunition inside a vehicle, the Stockton Police Department said on Wednesday.

Reason Reason, 34, and Lanisha Gansah, 35, face charges of resisting arrest and other weapons-related charges.

Just after 2:30 a.m., officers pulled a vehicle over in the area of Wilson Way and Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Boulevard.

Stockton police said the pair exited the car and consented to a search of the vehicle, but noticed the passenger reenter the car and reach toward the center console.

    It isn’t illegal to have ammunition unless you are a prohibited person (felon, found by a court to be mentally unfit etc. etc.). Is the lack of any mention of their status simply because the reported incorrectly assumes that anyone having ammunition is a criminal, or are they trying create the impression that a person having ammunition is a villian simply because they have ammunition.

    I’m a competitive shooter. Have, at my most recent inventory, 12000 rounds of ammunition. That’s about 9 months worth of practice and competition. I can just see the headlines if the Sacramento Bee ever found how much ammunition I have. Clearly I must be preparing to overthrow the government, or maybe I’m just working on making it to the next competitive classifiction.
