ALBANY, Ga. -- An Albany man was jailed Friday on drug and possession of guns by a felon charges.

Demarcus Price, 26, was arrested by Albany-Dougherty Drug Unit agents after they served a search warrant on his 1628 Gardner Ave., Apt. A, about 1:30 p.m., Maj. Bill Berry, commander of the drug unit, said.

"We had information on him," Berry said, "and after surveillance, we executed a search warrant."

During the search, agents confiscated two pistols and a pistol-grip shotgun, $9,000 in cash and nearly one pound of marijuana. According to thepriceofweed.com, a pound of high-quality marijuana has a value of about $5,600 in Georgia.

Because Price is a felon, Berry said, he was charged with possession of guns by a felon, along with possession of drugs with intent to distribute.

The agents displayed the confiscated goods on a table at their office. Two beaten-up revolvers with duct-taped handles -- a .22-caliber and a .38-caliber gun -- had plenty of ammunition with them. The more formidable-looking black shotgun had more than 10 rounds ready to load.

The continuing investigation uncovered pills, which have yet to be identified, Berry said.

I know there are only a few people here who think we need more gun laws. It is now against the law for a felon to posses a gun. What would more laws do? The only people more gun laws would affect are law abiding citizens. What legitimate reason would you have for doing that? Do you think this guy would give up his guns? He didn't have a background check,so write up all the restrictive background checks you want, he doesn't care. He doesn't need a 30 round magazine. All he needs is a sawed off shotgun. Which is also illegal. Gun control is increased control of the people, or as Washington feels, the little people.

When guns are outlawed, only outlaws will have guns.
