Police: S.C. Man Arrested After Carrying Loaded Guns Into Times Square Subway Station

NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — A police officer made a shocking discovery Sunday night after confronting a man he saw skipping a subway fare in Times Square, authorities said.

Allen Reggie, 33, of Columbia, S.C., was arrested after the officer recovered not only a fully loaded Smith & Wesson .45-caliber handgun but also a loaded Intratec Luger Tec-9 machine gun in his bag, police said.

The officer stopped Reggie after observing him entering the 42nd Street subway station around 5:25 p.m. without paying the fare, police said.

    what is done about 7 million mooslime terrorists living in usa?

  2. pete says:

    If the gun that they had is a tek9, its a semiautomatic luger, not a machine gun.

    1. The Facts says:

      You are correct. All too often, some reporters sensationalize the “news” to demonize guns and gun owners at the expense of the truth.

      1. Angelica says:

        Does it really matter what gun he had? This has nothing to do with demonizing anyone, you conspiracy theorists are getting out of hand.

        1. Amtracmarine says:

          You are kinda right,it shouldn’t matter what kind of gun he had, which is why the reporter had no need to call it a machine gun,which it isn’t. The fact the the gun is banned in NYC and most if not all Northen states would have had the same dramatic effect while being more accurate.

    2. Amtracmarine says:

      Wrong, The Tek 9 is not a Luger,Designed by Intratec,The Intratec TEC-DC9 (TEC-9) is a blowback-operated, semi-automatic firearm, chambered in 9×19mm Parabellum, an American offshoot of Interdynamic AB

    That’s why I live in suburbia.

  5. Love NYC says:

    Fully loaded? Thank goodness the officer is not a casualty. Scary. Never know who is right next to you, where they are from, or what they are capable of, weapon or not. No matter how strict the gun laws, there will always be vermin that ignore the law.

  6. Charles Ton says:

    There are no subways in South Carolina. Therefore, South Carolina residents are exempt from paying the fare.

      Hey . . .do not get the fool started.
      Not only is he hollering now (from his jail cell) about how the NYPD violated his 2nd amendment rights, but maybe he’ll also start that “unlikeable Southern drivel” about States’ rights.

    good work by the officer. another village celebrates the loss of its idiot. all these confiscated weapons should be melted down. guns & people kill people. a new jersey native, national park ranger and mother of 2 young children is murdered by a lone wolf, and yes, ex-military. machine gun?! and smith & wesson. c’mon man. can’t wait to hear if this clown has a record in the carolinas. another example of stupid is as stupid does. time to stop too many chances (i.e. anything more than 1). there is no reason or excuse for whatthis idiot was doing/packing. put him away for a long time without any perks.

    1. Amtracmarine says:

      Damn Thor,there’s so much going on in your post. Isn’t it kinda early to be drinking ??

      1. Randall says:

        Amtracmarine –
        Are you on drugs?

        Thor’s hammer is right – another useless GIFT for NYC from clueless NRA members (hailing largely from south of the Mason Dixon line).
        Y’ALL GO BACK HOME NOW, YA HEAR?

        1. Amtracmarine says:

          Hey Randall,it’s good to see thor’s AA sponsor back him up. Your post makes as little sense as his does.
