  1. Was it the evil looking ar-15 that’s why ? Or was it a fully automatic rifle ? A handgun ? Firearms does not explain what type ? Unauthorized Possession how did he get them ? Did he have he PAL then it expired which would make it Unauthorized Possession ? The story has alot holes in it .

  2. A gun is a gun is a gun and waving one around in public is a recipe for an expensive lawyer to own your house. Unless of course you qualify for legal aid and then getting a good one is like finding a pin in a haystack.
