So – we have a Tariq 9mm, a Glock 9mm, a 12 ga. Benelli shotgun and a Škorpion (which they describe as a submachine gun, but there is a semi-automatic version and at least 2 news stories refer to a “semi-automatic sub-machine gun” (gotta love the use of the Journalists Guide to Firearms). I know people whose EDC is more of an arsenal than this.
Lethal hollow-point and soft-tip bullets – terminology aside, all bullets are potentially lethal.
A 12-bore shotgun for use in combat – puhleeze.
Very high-caliber weapons – see above.
Thank goodness Great Britain outlawed personal possession of firearms, so this sort of thing couldn’t actually happen…um…oh, wait – it did.
Don’t get me wrong – I’m glad they caught these two and were able to get guns out of the hands of criminals. But clearly if this could happen then their gun control regimen isn’t working. I think we already knew that.
EDIT: Weerd informs me that the Skorpion is in fact the full-auto 7.65x17mm variant.
