weapons and airsoft seized in mississauga

I noticed this in the Star today:

"Weapons stockpile seized in Mississauga raid

Peel Regional Police have arrested a 27-year-old Mississauga man after they seized a cache of weapons last week at an apartment on Arista Way.

Police say they were investigating the trafficking of firearms to members of a gang within the Region of Peel.

Last Wednesday, police raided an apartment on Arista Way, in the Hurontario and Burnamthorpe Rd. E. area, and seized two revolvers, five rifles, a sawed-off shotgun, 30 replicas/pellet guns, 25 various weapons and more than 1,000 rounds of ammunition.

Police are trying to determine where the firearms came from.

Michael Etherington has been charged with 35 firearm and weapons-related offences. He is scheduled to appear in Brampton court Wednesday for a bail hearing.

Anyone with information is asked to contact Peel Regional Police at (905) 453-3311 ext. 8800, or Peel Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS/8477."

Wow Mississauga is becoming well known now huh? 5 years ago this would have been seen as very strange news. Now given all that's happened lately (someone got shot and died in front of Square One, grow operations in northwestern Mississauga, weapons cache found, murders around City Centre area) we're fast becoming Toronto!

Gangs and guns

Seems like in many of these busts replica firearms outnumber real ones by 3 to one...
Makes you wonder how many of these "gangbangers" are actually carrying toys.....

But I guess if a group of guys that all pull out guns as long as one of them is real the effect would be the same.. Not a positive trend that is for certain

LOL, you just reminded of a story my friend told me some time ago.

Back in the early-mid 90s my friend had a job at a small men's suit store. One day, while things were slow and he was alone, some guy came in, pretended to look around and when my buddy wasn't looking...whipped out a small pistol and hold him to empty the cash. But my friend recongnized his "weapon" as a airgun and told him to 'f' off. The guy still tried to convince him to empty the cash. My buddy then tried to grab the airgun from the theif and they got into a small skirmish. After a minute or so the guy just wiggled himself free and ran off.

Now that he looks back on it, he realizes he shouldnt have tried to tackle the dude. but still gets a laugh from the memory or the dude pulling out a airgun.

Hmm... living around the city center doesn't feel so safe anymore... Bah, to think I was spoiled to be living away from all this crap for so long... lovely.

Edit: Is it me or did I see an mp40 in that picture?

Yea, looks like MP40. Probably a springer or new TOP AEG. Or maybe stolen real steel... who knows.
Here's better pic of the guns.

It's usually younger members or ''recruits'' that carry pellet guns in gangs. Organized gangs don't give real guns to their youg members before they are around 15-16. That way they keep some kind of control and reduce their chances of being busted by a young kid that will say everything authorities want him to tell.
