arrested

El Mirage, AZ –  Police arrested a man on suspicion of endangerment when the gun he was carrying fired, launching a bullet into a store’s ceiling early Thursday morning, officials said.

At one point, a clerk working the electronics section told police that Walter took the gun out of its holster and then removed and replaced the gun’s magazine. The woman feared she was about to be robbed and notified the store manager.

Damn I hate when guns decide to shoot by themselves when you’re handling them. :roll:

Who the hell handles their gun in public for no reason, and expects it not to cause alarm?

Why does he try to force his way into the locked video game case, and then go behind the employee counter?  Pretty shady…

Doesn’t look like an accident to me,  I don’t foresee the judge taking any pity on him.

Another interesting story from the U.K.:

Mr Furze, 30, displayed his modified his scooter, with an anti-tailgating flame thrower operated by the flick of switch, in the press earlier this week.

But Lincolnshire Police spotted the pictures of Mr Furze allegedly riding his scooter on a public highway – and arrested him on Thursday.

He was held on suspicion of possessing an object converted into a firearm, and was released on unconditional police bail without charge until May 6 pending further police investigation.

Possession of a firearm carries a maximum prison sentence of five to seven years at Crown Court.

Although awesome, it definitely sounds like there is the potential for something very bad to happen with a setup like that; especially using it on public roads in traffic.

From what I can gather, in the U.S. flamethrowers have the potential to be classified by the ATF as Destructive Devices.  I guess depending the intended use, and on how badly they want to throw the book at someone.

Ironic that they are one of the top manufactures of handcuffs. :lol:


“This is one case where what happens in Vegas didn’t stay in Vegas,” Assistant Attorney General Lanny Breuer said at a news conference.

I bet he was saving that line up for a while :roll:
