Default Guns Seized at Coutts Border

http://calsun.canoe.ca/News/Alberta/...66841-sun.html

Quote:
Border officials have foiled a bid to smuggle 10 semi-automatic weapons and hundreds of rounds of ammunition into Alberta after they seized firearms hidden in a vehicle bound for the province.


Canada Border Services Agency (CBSA) officers at the Coutts crossing seized the firearms, including one semi-automatic machine pistol, 11 high-capacity magazines and 300 rounds of ammunition while examining a vehicle entering Canada from the U.S. last Saturday.
Quote:
An Edmonton-area man, Adrian Le Mon Barnes, 30, was charged with 45 firearms offences, including possession of firearms for the purpose of trafficking and unauthorized importation of firearms. He'll appear Jan. 28 in Lethbridge court. The seizure was the result of a joint investigation by the CBSA and the U.S. Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives.
They were saying on the radio that one of the weapons was called a house buster or something like that, capable of 800 rounds-per-minute, and that the weapons were probably destined for Calgary.

Keep up the good work. Atleast that is 10 guns less out of the thousands that do make it across every year.

hope he gets a good long sentence to reflect upon his choices, unfortunately, given the Canadian justice system i doubt it.

When do they go up for auction?

I need a machine pistol to fill out my collection and get my free GI Joe action figure.
