UK to Jail Shooting Champ for “Huge” Ammo Cache

 

Quick! How much ammo do you have? How much would you have if you were a world-class shooter? thesun.co.uk reports that “Sergeant Major Morgan Cook, 39, admitted possessing up to 40,000 rounds of .22 ammunition at his home on the Defence Intelligence Security Centre at Chicksands, Beds.” But wait! There’s more! “The world pistol shooting champ also pleaded guilty to having 600 rounds of 9mm ammo, 3,750 of 5.56mm ammo and seven rounds of 5.56 tracer bullets.” That’s illegal! “Judge Advocate Emma Peters told Cook at the Military Court Centre, Colchester, Essex, yesterday that ‘all options are open’ when he is sentenced on November 9.” Whipping? Branding? The pillory? Will they have Sgt. Cook drawn and quartered? Imagine what the court would have done if they’d had proof that Sgt. Cook intended to commit a crime with the ammo . . .
