Gilbert Arenas -- More Trouble Over Guns

4/29/2010 4:39 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Gilbert Arenas -- the Washington Wizards basketball player who pled guilty to felony gun charges in January -- has more gun problems ... TMZ has learned.

We've obtained a lawsuit filed against Arenas by Tactical Operations -- a company that sells high-end guns. 

According to the lawsuit, filed today in L.A. County Superior Court, Arenas bought five custom Beretta pistols with five silencers in February of 2006.  Arenas paid for the guns, BUT....

Tactical Operations claims Arenas never took possession of the weapons -- and owes the company over $70,000 in storage fees and interest.

Storage fees! Tactical Operations must be a co. run by pricks. I store signs for my customers for nothing.

as usual on populist sites, the gun morons -- having watched too many crime movies -- ooze. could there be a more proper companion to target shooting, for one example, than a noise suppressor? of course not. the projecting psycho children see murder at every turn, except when it's the state doing the murdering.

What a crock of sh*t. They are asking him to pay $70,000 for guns that are worth, at best, $12,000. I don't think I want any of that sh*t these people are smoking.

You can take the basketball player out of the hood, but you can't take the hood out of the basketballplayer.

Silencers are illegal for Gilbert to own because of where he lives.

Diversity is a wonderful thing. Ghetto culture is running rampant in America. I love to watch M-TV Cribs and see a wealthy Rapper or Ball Player buy a house in an affluent suburb...then put in pitbull kennels and a fully lit basketball court so his posse can party all night.

This is bull. I doubt the guns cost that much. But he was a loser for getting in with this anyway so he deserves what he gets

In case none of you silly people have ever heard a gun fired indoors at a range... they have to wear ear protection for a reason. GUNS ARE LOUD WHEN FIRED. But yeah he's black so what other reason could he need a silencer for? Obviously he's a gangsta who's planning on assassinating his homies with them! *rolls eyes* The $1,400+/mo. for storage+interest is the real crime here!

#21 The proper companion for target shooting is legal ear protection, not a silencer.

Per federal laws it is illegal to own Silencers, and that is probably the reason why he didn't pick it up, someone probably told him the feds are waiting for you to take possession. And what this company wants for storage of guns it outrageous. Maybe they should just sell them and double the profit by 100%.
