OK, so this is an arsenal… From Prince George, BC: RCMP officers (and others) seized a large quantity of guns and ammunition from a home after CBSA officers noticed a pair of suspicious packages coming to that address from Germany. The packages were inspected and were found to contain the lower receiver for a Colt-M16A1 and a trigger assembly and selector switch for the M16A1. At the residence, police located more than 31,000 rounds of ammunition, three handguns (two of which were loaded), seven rifles, a fully automatic M16, a fully automatic AK47, two morning stars (spiked metal balls on a chain and stick), two shotguns, five 100-round capacity drum magazines, 50 assault rifle magazines, and four bulletproof vests. . .
If you’re in the vicinity of STH 186 near Vesper, Wisconsin this evening, you may want to be on the lookout for an AR-15 on the lam. It seems a Wood County Deputy was replacing the rifle in his vehicle and mislaid it at about 3:00 p.m., leaving the cased rifle on his trunk lid and driving off. The cruiser traveled northbound on STH 186 to CTH HH, and the rifle is believed to be somewhere along STH 186. The Wood County Sheriff’s Department requests that you turn the rifle in should you find it. [h/t: MojoRonin]
A Northern Illinois University man was arrested Wednesday after university police found guns and body armor in his on-campus dorm room. He was done in by a worker sorting mail in the residence hall who found a package containing gun parts and called police. Officers searched the addressee’s dorm room and found a disassembled AR-15, a .40 cal GLOCK, ammunition, and body armor. When questioned, the man said he was unaware guns are banned from all Illinois school campuses.
I’m pretty sure I saw someone mention that the Arlington, Texas photo that MDA was screeching about seemed a little to good to be true (for MDA). Today I ran across this article about Obama coming to Texas last week, and it had this interesting part at the bottom:
Moms Demand Action took credit for the first photo [from the side], but has declined to take credit for the second [from the front], saying they got it from social media. Kory Watkins of Open Carry Texas, who organized the protest, told the National Review that a woman had come over and asked to get a picture. She appeared nervous and didn’t have a gun on her. “I tried to start talking to her about the Second Amendment but she didn’t really say much,” Watkins said. “We got in the formation to take a picture for her. I said to my friend, ‘This is probably Moms Demand Action taking a picture, I just want you to know.’ But we didn’t care. It’s not a big deal. We don’t mind the pictures no matter where they come from. She took a couple pictures.”
So, a setup? Sure looks like it, and I’m not even wearing my William Burke hat.
