“Ready for war”? When the most ammunition they had for any one weapon was a box of 50, plus a few scattered rounds?
From the New York Post:
Cops found an arsenal of guns, swords and ammo inside a Brooklyn apartment, officials said.
Cops recovered a 9 MM Highpoint Rifle with a defaced serial number, one 380 Cal loaded semi-automatic handgun, a 357 revolver, as well as a 38 caliber revolver.
Police also found 50 rounds of 45 caliber ammunition, 50 rounds of 9MM ammunition, 67 rounds of 347 caliber ammunition, 50 rounds of 38 caliber ammunition, 17 rounds of 380 caliber ammunition, and a 45 caliber magazine.
As if that wasn’t enough, cops also recovered eight swords, one machete, some nunchakus and eight Codeine tablets, cops said.
“It was enough to arm a small army or militia,” a police source said of the bust. “These guys were ready for war.”
Assorted knives and air pistols were also recovered, according to police.
They weren’t even ready for a short afternoon of target shooting, let alone war.
It’s bad enough when journalists have no sense of reality, but when a “police source” makes statements like the ones in this hysterical article, you know you’ve got a bunch of scared children running the show. I wonder if they had to change their underpants after finding this huge “arsenal” big enough for a “small army.”
By the way:
- A couple of friends asked me: What on earth is “347 caliber ammunition”? Is there no proofreader available who can recognize a typo for .357?
- How exactly is the city threatened by .45 caliber ammunition and a .45 caliber magazine without any .45 firearm?
This one from a CBS report is even better: “‘I’ve never seen that much stuff in one residence,’ Sgt. Jeremy Berson told 1010 WINS.” Sergeant, you really need to get out of the illusory world of New York sometime.
If Sergeant Berson really wants to see an arsenal—and a lot of ammunition–I’m sure all he needs to do is pay a visit to notoriously anti-gun Michael Bloomberg. No doubt you could come up with more weapons, and more rounds of ammo, being carried on their persons than were found in this entire apartment.
Such a non-funny joke, New York is. Can you imagine if the city were to experience an attack like Mumbai a few years back? They’re a bunch of sheep, awaiting the slaughter, and apparently even their police don’t have more than a few rounds of ammo.
New York is so doomed. What a bunch of drama queens.
