OMG! It’s a Rifle! In a Bag! In Canada! OMG! A Rifle!

“Volunteers at a thrift store in Didsbury, Alta., north of Calgary, were stunned to find a sawed-off rifle in a bag of donated clothing,” reports. “The .22-calibre gun was discovered at the bottom of a bag that had been left in a drop-off bin for the Knox United Church’s charity store. The gun was taken to the RCMP detachment, where officers said it constitutes a prohibited weapon because the barrel was was cut below the minimum prescribed length. RCMP are treating the incident as suspicious. The rifle will be sent to the RCMP forensic laboratory in Regina for ballistics testing to see if it can be linked to a crime, police said. Anyone with information about how the rifle wound up in the donation box is asked to call police.”

    Is that the rifle? Because if it is, that is a fail.

      Yes. Yes it is.

      1. avatar John says:

        Then that is an official fail.

    At least it was a .22, so it shouldn’t break your wrists. Still should make one heck of a bang though.

    How do you aim that thing? Spray fire from the hip (very slowly)?

    1. avatar Skyler says:

      It’s a very large single shot belly gun. You don’t aim it.

    2. avatar Pete says:

      I think a large ball-peen hammer would be a more effective weapon.

    Ballistics testing? If that has even 2″ of barrel (not counting the chamber), then I’m a hybrid between an elephant.

      “RCMP are treating the incident as suspicious.”

      What on earth could they be suspicious of?

      1. avatar Dennis says:

        Why, somebody out there might have had a gun (gasp!) WITHOUT THE GOVERNMENT’S PERMISSION (EEK!)! You really have no notion of the depths of asshattery that are plumbed by Canadian gun laws, do you?

        Just be glad you don’t live here. 🙁

    Pathetic something at stupid as this even makes the news. Apparently the innuendos of nothing happening in Canada seem to be true.

      I would have thought that innuendos regarding the length of Canadian barrels would have surfaced, as well.
