off-roadA parolee barricaded himself in a motor home at the Pismo Sands RV Park in Oceano on Thursday.

Responding to reports of shots fired, San Luis Obispo Sheriff’s deputies arrived at the park and heard additional gun shots. Deputies then evacuated part of the park and surrounded the motor home.

Deputies contacted Dennis Ray Barnes, Jr., 43, at 9:30 p.m. and talked him out of the motor home.

    Interesting that as we relax gun control laws our multiple shootings have greatly expanded…

    I’m sorry to be “that guy” but isn’t it funny how great the gun control laws work? It was illegal for the man to be in possession of a firearm but guess what, he still had one.

      Isn’t it funny how great the speed limit law’s work, it is illegal to speed on my street but guess what some people still do it.

      The concept that when someone breaks the law, the law has failed is a logical fallacy.

      calguns is that way>>>>>>

    This surely doesn’t matter but, CCN reports him to be in a mobile home while KSBY said it was a trailer while showing the cops swarming a huge RV bus in the background.

    Wonder what he was really in and why the different versions?
