SACRAMENTO • Assemblyman Tim Donnelly took some friendly fire on Friday when he spoke with John and Ken, the radio duo who host a Burbank-based talk show.

The Republican candidate for governor appeared to violate his probation agreement last week by firing borrowed weapons at a gun range in Santa Cruz County. Donnelly was barred from using firearms that are not registered to him for three years after pleading no contest to two misdemeanors for bringing a loaded weapon to an airport in 2012.

One of the hosts greeted him on the show by saying, “This is one way to raise your name recognition, if you end up in the paper every few days for some gun violation.”

Donnelly laughed and said, “Someone at the L.A. Times is trying to sell some papers.”
