2 Men arrested with Replica Handguns COBOURG

Fucking stupid shits.
Todays toronto sun page 7

Complete with photo of the offending weapons.

I'd like to know what schmuks thought it would be fun to run around between houses at night with their pistols. the two were 18 and 20.

COBOURG -- Police issued a warning yesterday about the dangers of replica handguns after seizing two weapons so realistic they fooled veteran officers.

Police arrested two men at gunpoint Sunday at around 10 p.m. after an area resident initially spotted one man running between two houses with what appeared to be a handgun.

The men, aged 18 and 20, told police they bought the 9 mm and .40-calibre handguns off the Internet two months ago.

The weapons were virtually identical to the ones used by police, expect the replicas fire plastic bullets.

"I personally have not seen anything that looks more like our gun than what I see here," said Cobourg Sgt. Nancy Saunders, noting replica guns like these can lead to deadly situations.



LUCKY TO AVOID TRAGEDY

"Certainly in a situation like that in the night time, and we know it's a gun call, something tragic could have happened. We were lucky that didn't happen."

The replicas weigh approximately the same as a real gun and are also made from metal and plastic like a real gun. The replica guns even have serial numbers.

"We're not quite sure whether they understand that when they look so much like a real firearm it's scary for the officer attending because they don't know if they are real or not and potentially a very fatal situation could occur when these guns are out there," Saunders said.

The gun-toting men were cautioned about their actions. The guns were seized for destruction.

Stupidity

The sad part is its people who are not even part of the airsoft family that are going to eventually kill off the sport or force some major concessions on our part to continue playing...

I really wish they wouldn't refer to them like this.

Also the part about "fooling vetran officers". To be fair a veteran officer can be fooled by a man taking his wallet out of his pocket in a dark alleyway. I guess thats just how news reporting works.

im sure if it was someone from the airsoft community than we will know who they are sooner or later. at worst it was someone from this communities little brother who stole the guns or maybe someone from the community sold to them. but i doubt its anyone from here.


do u have the pictures from the news paper?

Interesting , no charges,

Seized the guns, but no charges,

Both of these goons committed criminal offenses in this act, Yet the police just took their toys away and told them to stop being stupid.

This is a pretty good indicator of the current enforcement climate ....

The overriding take away of this is that the police don't care if you have them.. just don't be stupid with them.. or you will force them to take them away.

I want to know if these jokers are registered with the ASC. considering the size of that town there can't be that many players from Cobourg.

Agreed - same scenario with the A-Channel story out on the west coast.

Let's just keep a level head and see what happens.

In the mean time, those in the vacinity of these fuck tards, or those willing to go for a drive, feel free to "hoof them in the sack" on behalf of the entire (and I'm including the global aspect as well) airsoft community.

Take picture too. We'll post them as examples to other would be idiots.
