Lauren Tannehill, Who Forgot Her AR-15 in a Rental Car, Is No Stranger to Guns

Two hours.

That's how long Miami Dolphins First Lady Lauren Tannehill possessed a rented Nissan Rogue January 4. But within those two hours, she somehow found time to nestle her AR-15 -- which three states banned following the Sandy Hook massacre -- into a gray bag, plop it in the back seat, forget its existence, and return the Nissan to an E-Z Rent-A-Car.

According to the Broward County Sheriff's Office, a woman named Judith Fleissig rented the car immediately after Tannehill. Two days later, she found the bag, and totally freaked out when her daughter opened it. "Oh my God. It's a gun," the daughter said. "I think I'm going to throw up," Fleissig responded, the Sun Sentinel reports.

Though it's a surprise that Tannehill would forget one of the world's most dangerous assault rifles in the back of her rental car, it's no surprise she had it in the first place. Lauren Tannehill loves a good gun. "#Gunsblazzzinn," Tannehill writes. "Don't mess with me. #imfromtx."

And Tannehill, as you can see, is a pretty good shot.

But perhaps next time, she might want to keep better track of her high-powered rifles.
