Yea 20,000… GONE.  *poof*:

The Interior Ministry said thieves broke into a warehouse and stole a huge amount of firearms and ammunition. The ministry said 20,000 U.S.-origin M-16 assault rifles and 15,000 rounds for 9mm pistols were stolen.

I love how the article says “there were no guards during the break-in”, like OH WHAT A COINCIDENCE, that doesn’t sound like an inside job at all.  

*ring* *ring* *ring* Hello?

Put Ahmad on the phone.

Who is this?

PUT Ahmad on the damn phone.

Ahmad here, wAHHHHHHHHHHHTTTTUP?

Maintainin’ my dude… anyway if you can get Tony and Raj’s help tonight and borrow Abdullah’s semi trailer, the boys and I are going on a break at around 11PM WINK WINK.

What is “wink wink”?

Dude… do I have to spell it out for you?  THERE ARE 20,000 M-16s in the warehouse.  We won’t be there.  Come steal them.

Ah right, thanks for being a bro.

*click*

Yea that’s how I’m thinking it went down.  20,000 rifles has to take up a significant amount of room, no matter how they are packed!  I wonder if anyone is going to get in trouble for this, or will it just get swept under the rug?

Thoughts?

When a car is reported stolen, an officer will confirm the report and get the owner’s signature on a form, Lt. Mike Edwards of the department’s investigations procedures unit said. Once that form is signed, the officer will call into the dispatch center and the information — a vehicle’s color, year, make, model, body type and license-plate number — will be tweeted to Twitter followers.

“It’s a force multiplier,” with citizens helping police see stolen vehicles and, hopefully, get them back to their owners more quickly, Edwards said.

Interesting idea if it works for them.  I could see it also working in the favor of criminals because they could just ditch a car once it has been tweeted.

It’s amazing but true: we can prevent terror suspects from boarding an airplane, but the FBI doesn’t have the power to block them from buying dynamite or an AK-47.

Not true Mayor Bloomberg… you actually can’t prevent terror suspects from boarding airplanes, and that is evident by the fact that recent Times Square bomb plot suspect Faisal Shahzad was able to board a Dubai-bound flight at JFK airport in your own city (Source).

I’m all for “closing the terror gap” when taken at face value… but in reality rather than buying new guns and risk being caught, terrorists will just start purchasing guns used (stolen or otherwise) or obtaining them through a legal 3rd party (also known as a straw purchase).  Just like other criminals, terrorists obviously do not care about the law, so circumventing it to get what they want is not going to faze them.

I can’t help but be suspicious that closing the terror gap will also mean more restrictions put on the rest of us.

Another problem is that currently the terror watch list is a huge joke. There are thousands of people on the list that shouldn’t be on there.  Should they be denied the right to purchase a gun?  Remember 8 year old Mikey Hicks?
