“The home of Godzilla actor Aaron Taylor-Johnson [not shown] and his wife, Fifty Shades of Grey director Sam Taylor-Johnson, was raided by police on Thursday evening (August 28) after a passerby saw a machine gun through the window in London, England,” justjared.com reports. Only it wasn’t a rock. It was a rock lobster! Sorry. I mean, it wasn’t a machine gun. It was a “fully decommissioned M16 assault rifle [not shown] that was provided to Mrs Taylor-Johnson by the international charity Peace One Day as part of an art project entitled ‘Peace One Day M16’.” Yeah, that so works on a post-modern level . . .
Anyway, anyone who’s lived in a police state (i.e., a state where the populace is disarmed) will tell you that it quickly gets to the point where everyone spies on everyone else, especially when it comes to privately held guns. For the public good. Or cash. Or privileges. Or protection from the State. Or something. True story.
