1. If the police on the University of Central Florida campus need a modified grenade launcher, wait in the department`s armory. The weapon, which was converted to fire tear gas canisters, was used for training purposes a few years ago, according to Richard Beary, the university`s police chief. Since then, he has left no memory. While the grenade launcher was seized, the TSA confirmed that the Florida man had successfully flown to Orlando Sanford International Airport. Julie Delegal, a Jacksonville-based writer whose father was a police officer, said the event could lead young people to see guns as toys. On the sheriff`s office`s Facebook page, a spokesman responded to Delegal`s comment by saying, “It`s important to talk to the kids about the equipment we have, especially so they don`t run away from us when they try to help us.” Possession of a destructive device is illegal in California if it can be proven in a court that possesses it and the person knew it was a destructive device. The photos show a number of public safety and SWAT team tools, including a halligan, spurs and grenade launchers. The sheriff`s office confirmed to the Florida Times-Union that the launchers were genuine but unloaded. Online, critics have argued that if adults can`t tell the difference between a grenade launcher and a gun, young children might not know the difference either. Inside the dumpster were two empty, disposable AT4 launcher tubes and an inert training grenade cut in half. However, legal arguments can be made if there is a license for the weapon. The 1986 law did not legalize damage to machinery that did not exist before, it made it illegal for civilians to own anything that was manufactured after 1986.
Before 1986, there were very few miniguns on the civilian market, hence the price. Cannon grenades are classified as destructive devices in the United States under the National Firearms Act (NFA) of 1934. They must be registered with the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives and, while legal under federal law, cannot be owned by civilians in some states. However, muzzle-loading guns themselves are – remarkably – not considered firearms in the United States and are therefore not regulated by the NFA. After determining that it was a projectile weapon, authorities said they properly deactivated it and carefully stored the grenade in a dangerous goods locker (dangerous goods) and the launcher in another police room. At the event, attendees were able to climb through the Sheriff`s Office`s Bearcat armored vehicle along with other vehicles. They turned on sirens and lights and honked their horns. The officers answered questions and staged demonstrations with a loaded smoke grenade launcher. I do not disagree with any part of your logic, but I do not necessarily agree with it either. Here`s my problem: In `04-`05, my unit had no MRAP or APC of any kind, only our squad leaders had M203s, we only had two .50 Cals and two MK19s (automatic grenade launchers) for an entire line company (4 platoons that make ~150 Marines and line infantry sailors). Damn, we only had two or three highly armored Humvees at one point, and even they were transfers from the army. So when I see police departments like the ones mentioned in the article, I see police stations here in the United States that are literally as heavily armed or more than we were during the door-to-door fights in Fallujah, Ramadi, Hit, etc.
The only thing missing at this point is the M1 Abrams tanks. Even if I admit that there are dangerous cities in America, I simply cannot bring myself to accept that they need this kind of equipment. Employees at a thrift store in Florida found a grenade launcher loaded with live grenades among the donated items left in their goodwill container. Here are some of the stories. Today, as the debate over gun control in the United States continues, it seems incredible to think that possession of a number of lethal weapons — some old, some more modern — remains permitted under federal law. Read on for ten crazy guns that are still legal in the U.S. She said one photo in particular has drawn criticism from critics. It shows a young girl holding a 40mm revolver grenade launcher with six bullets in her hand. It`s amazing what can be hidden in a seemingly ordinary umbrella. Perhaps best known as the weapon of choice for the gentle British spy John Steed in the 1960s TV series The Avengers, umbrellas with hidden blades remain legal in a number of places. In the UK, such hidden weapons appear to be legal to trade if they are more than 100 years old – and therefore ancient. Meanwhile, blades are only banned in the United States in New York, California, and Massachusetts.
Most surprising, however, is the fact that umbrella swords with 15-inch blades are available online for just $30. “When the launcher was assembled, it turned out that it was not working and the grenade was an inert replica,” Farbstein wrote, adding, “(Thank God!)” The Transportation Security Administration (TSA) on Monday seized a “rocket-propelled military grenade launcher” at a Pennsylvania airport. If you tell me that the police have a 40 mm stockpile of highly explosive projectiles in their arsenal, then we can talk about the militarization of the police. Because it is a munition designed to kill people within a radius of 10-15 m. It is not something that aims to maintain the peace and order of its own citizens. At present, these are tools whose purpose is to disperse ammunition designed to get out of the fight of crowds or dangerous people and usually arrest them alive or leave the area and return home. That is what we are doing with the citizens. We arrest them to face legitimate justice, or we give them a chemical blow to the wrist and they return home safely to be productive members of society. The “grenade launcher” is just a tube with a spring and a nail at one end. It is the application that is the most important. “What did pcso think?” Delegal wrote on Facebook.
