“Border Police officers located a semi-automatic M-16 assault rifle on Monday in a home in the Arab Israeli village of Ain al-Sahla in the Wadi Ara region in the north,” israellnationalnews.com reports. “Making the finding of the M-16 all the more unusual was that the lethal weapon was inscribed with the logo of the US Navy SEALs [picture after the jump], likely indicating it was stolen. Adding another troubling aspect to the find is the fact that Wadi Ara was the hometown of the terrorist Nashat Milhem, who murdered three victims with an automatic weapon in Tel Aviv in early January.” And so the IDF is hyping — you guess it — gun control . . .
“This activity joins a long list of activities taken by the Israel police every day with a goal of reducing the phenomenon of possessing illegal weapons and using them for criminal purposes,” said the commander of the unit that seized the gun.
“We understand today that one of the most serious ramifications of the use of weapons by criminal sources is the harm to the lives of innocent and uninvolved civilians.”
Good luck with that.
