Haverhill police say the arrests of two local men on weapons charges, reported early yesterday by WHAV, were the result of a joint investigation with federal Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms (ATF) agents into the illegal selling of an AK47 rifle.So they caught on knucklehead selling a AK47 to another knucklehead, big deal. In most states, that's called a private transaction and no big deal as long as both people are legal. Of course in some states, it is a big deal because the government has to control every aspect of your life.
As the late great Billy Mays used to say, "But wait, there's more".
Suddenly, the AK47 has magically transformed itself into a Norinco SKS. With a whole 10 rounds of ammunition. I'm mightily impressed.
A Norinco SKS Rifle was located in the trunk of the vehicle, along with 10 rounds of 7.62x39 ammunition and clips, according to Captain Robert P. Pistone, Haverhill police spokesperson.
The "clips" are a couple of stripper clips. Every one I know that has a SKS has a bunch of these.
The magic AK47 disguising it's self as a SKS.
It gets better. Remember Captain Robert Pistone? He had this to say.
“This was great work on the part of Haverhill Police Detectives and the ATF, as this particular rifle in the wrong hands is lethal and capable of penetrating ballistic vests and armor,” Pistone said.Really? Hell, in the right hands it's lethal, and of course it will penetrate body armor. The typical level III body armor the police use is designed to stop pistol rounds. With the exception of the 22 LR round, any rifle round will go right through it. How did this guy make Captain?
I think this is where you are supposed to put SMH.
Thanks to Mike.
