The story didn't have many details. Maybe he was carrying it without a LTCF.
And I don't think you can even have a gun while on parole.
http://www.pacode.com/secure/data/03...chap63toc.html§ 63.4. General conditions of parole.
If parole is granted, the parolee shall be subject to the following conditions:

(2) Live at the residence approved by the Board at release and not change residence without the written permission of the parole supervision staff.
(3) Maintain regular contact with the parole supervision staff by:
(i) Reporting regularly as instructed and following written instructions of the Board or the parole supervision staff.
(ii) Notifying the parole supervision staff within 72 hours of one of the following:

(iii) Refrain from an assaultive behavior.
(6) Pay fines, costs and restitution imposed by the sentencing court in accordance with the instructions contained in the Conditions Governing Parole/Reparole form.
This is not far from where I live. Crafton is generally a quiet community. I can't say I have ever seen the guy in the area. I was speaking to PD last night and they said he had quite a bit of gasoline stored on the property but did not mention any weapons...
It could be that they just flat plain got the story wrong and he got popped for possession of a firearm as a convicted felon and/or parolee.
Unlicensed firearms vs. illegal possession of firearms ... you and I may see a difference, but for the target audience that's just the same
So long and thanks for all the fish.
It was most likely a terminology error. That Lloyd guy was probably busted for carrying concealed or transporting in a vehicle without a license.
News stations, papers, and reporters are not very knowledgeable of legal terms, the laws themselves, or they wrongfully use such buzz words or terms to shock their readers to catch their attention.
We need to start an informative campaign to educate news outlets and reporters like we have with local governments and LE departments.

Acquitted of Murder, Neo-Nazi Killer Taunts Victim’s Family
Posted in Extremist Crime, skinheads, White Supremacist, Neo-Nazi, Hate Groups by David Holthouse on February 15, 2008
Even by the twisted standards of the neo-Nazi underworld, Hardy Lloyd is one sick individual. The 30-year-old skinhead, who describes himself as the “doctor of all hate,” was kicked out of the ultra-violent World Church of the Creator in 2003 after he was involuntarily committed to a mental hospital. “I do not believe killing is wrong,” Lloyd wrote in 2004. “Our new religion must be the worship of death and murder.”
Later that year, Lloyd (right) was arrested for murder after he killed his girlfriend. The victim, 41-year-old Lori Hann, was a divorced legal secretary who met Lloyd through an Internet dating service. Lloyd admitted shooting Hann in the face during an argument over another woman, but claimed that she’d threatened him with a handgun minutes earlier and that he fired in self-defense.
Prosecutors argued that Hann was gunned down in the street while running for help (she’d pulled over her car and gotten out in front of a stranger’s house with Lloyd in the passenger seat), and pointed out that Hann was unarmed when Lloyd shot her (Hann’s handgun was found in her vehicle). Nevertheless, a jury in November 2006 acquitted Lloyd of first-degree murder and voluntary manslaughter, finding him guilty only of carrying a firearm without a license.
This is the son of a very close family friend. I saw this on the news yesterday and my parents were saddened. I think he is off his meds so he was acting goofy. His parents are wonderful people so I don't know how he can be so screwed up.

He wasn't on parole, he was on probation. Two very differtent things.
Parole is what a felon gets after early releasde from prison.
Probation is what one gets instead of going to prison.
Not being around firearms is a restriction that can be applied to probation.
