yeah, I'm totally not surprised: the stronger the gun control, the stronger the weapons...

And if you think gun control is a failure in places like the UK and Australia, just wait and see if they pass a prohibition style ban on firearms in the US.  Those place might have illegal guns but they don't have a massive land border which is perfect for weapon smugglers, not to mention leading to corrupt and war torn nations.

Turns out, not quite:

http://wizbangblog.com/2013/01/08/fake-news-l-a-copsmedia-tout-rocket-launcher-seizure-that-wasnt/

Quote
On December 27 L.A. Police Chief Charlie Beck displayed a pair of what he claimed were “weapons of war” turned in during his latest gun buyback program. Chief Beck told the media that a pair of “rocket launchers” turned up and he evidently wanted to scare his city and make waves in the media about his success in getting these “weapons of death” off the streets of L.A.

Of course, the “rocket launchers” Chief Beck showed the Old Media establishment were nothing of the kind. Instead, what Beck waved about during the December press conference were U.S. Army training devices that were dummy devices. They are essentially prop pieces made to show young soldiers what such anti-tank weapons look like and how they feel. These training devices have never been able to fire anything nor could they be made to do so.

But, details, details...

But upon looking into this story further, it appears that Chief Beck has played this misleading game at least once before and with the exact same device.

Back in May, Beck again paraded before the media with a “rocket launcher” he claimed his department had received during a gun buyback program. That piece, too, was clearly marked “trainer” and was incapable of ever firing any rockets.

So, no rocket launcher, just a lying bureaucrat trying to show off.

http://japandailypress.com/weapons-cache-seized-by-japanese-police-most-likely-yakuza-arsenal-2843180/

Quote
On Monday, Kanagawa Prefectural Police announced that it had seized pistols, a rifle and ammunition that is most likely a part of an arsenal of weapons owned by the Japanese mob – more popularly known as the yakuza.

The seizure of the weapons cache actually took place in December of 2013, and the prefectural police revealed that they had taken into their custody 18 hand guns which included Smith & Wesson revolvers and Colt automatic pistols, a military rifle and 670 rounds of ammunition – all found inside a home in an unidentified location in the prefecture. The police were able to locate the stash with the help of an anonymous tip, who informed them that the local yakuza were stockpiling weapons in the said house.

And if you thought is was hard to stop people making GUNS, think about how easily you can make a BOW:


A PVC pipe, a heat gun, and some paracord.
