Okay, so he is a felon, it is illegal for him to own a gun, but, like everyone else he would hate to have his car stolen while he is away on a JOG.

This is a serious story!

The P-I says that the man cocked the hammer on the gun and put it below his steering wheel as an “anti-theft device” while he went for a jog.
When he returned and attempted to de-booby his ride the gun went off.
