    Usual bullshit after a raid, none of the weapons were fully automatic, none were illegal on their own and none show an actual escalation of violence.

    As to the Desert Eagle , so what It has what 5 shots? And kicks like a mule. It is a pistol that is LEGAL to own.

    In fact if these weapons are so sobering and so dangerous, how come we are not reading of heavy shoot outs when they raided these people?

    Every time the cops seize weapons they parade them out and act like some great crime was committed and imply we have a problem with weapons. NONE of those weapons listed are even illegal, you can go down to your local gun store in most States and BUY them.

    Further 31 people were arrested yet only 23 weapons seized. Hardly startling numbers compared to the number of people arrested.

    What's "new" about it? Sounds like some sensationalist journalism to me. I packed two .45s back in the 70s. Miami was not a nice place. Probably still isn't.

    "Dangerous new factor." LMFAO. Pansies. If you can't man up, get off the field.

    I agree 100%. If that was the big gun stash...One friggin .50 pistol and a few rifles? Big whoop!

    I've met some of the dorks in the Seattle DEA office. They are totally full of themselves. Fucking assholes. From what I've seen they are nothing but grandstanding pussys.

    The story does NOT say they are illegals at ALL. That would be an assumption on YOUR part. And again, 31 arrested and only 23 weapons seized, not even one weapon per person. And none of the weapons were illegal weapons at all.

    I wonder who the bigger idiot is, the person who designed a .50 cal. pistol, or the one who bought it.

    I made the mistake one time of being on deck directly below a .50 cal. machine gun being fired. My ears rang for an hour. I don't think my hearing was ever quite the same after that.
