Brits Throw Hissy Fit Over Auction of Al Capone’s Gun by Robert Farago | Jun 22, 2011 | 5 comments facebook twitter linkedin email Folks this is from The Telegraph, the most Conservative of UK newspapers. Is there any hope for The Land of Hope and Glory? comments Res Publica Americana says: June 23, 2011 at 03:37 You and I know better, but in places with such mentalities, logic and reason aren’t actually applied at all to the thinking – they’re just imagining it’s there, and always manage to convince themselves that it is. I don’t remember the last time they complained about a Ferrari commercial “glamorizing speeding, dangerous driving, and crimes committed with cars/car accidents!” Frankly, I don’t care what the Europeans do – let them burn and wallow in ignorance.

The question is, why? Reply CUJO THE DOG OF WAR says: June 23, 2011 at 12:02 As Capone was a crime boss, wouldn’t it be assumed that he never used this revolver to shoot anybody anyway? Personally, I’d rather have a revolver that Wild Bill Hickock carried. Reply Hunter S. says: June 23, 2011 at 13:09 Anybody surprised at how ordinary that Colt looks… I would have expected a BA looking 1911 or something exotic with grips made from the horn of a unicorn. Anybody else thinking that? Not to say that I don’t think that Al Capone’s gun is a valuable piece of history. I’d pay $2 for it.
