(The Atlantic Wire)   Not one, but two anti-tank rocket launchers were turned into the LAPD during their gun buyback program this week, which must have made keeping the "no questions asked" part of the deal awfully hard for officers   (theatlanticwire.com) divider line 20

So someone turned in a LAW or AT4 tube?

Thats almost as scary as a 3 foot section of PVC pipe with a bayonet lug.

RPG launchers in downtown LA? Did anyone account for the whereabouts of D-FENS?

F22raptom: you can make a rocket launcher at home.


This. As a kid I used to make the rockets out of an Estes model rocket kit and a shoulder fired launcher out of a section of PVC pipe. Even added a pistol grip/trigger assembly and optics to it.

Of course, without any type of guidance system the thing was horribly inaccurate. Only things I ever managed to hit were my moms car and the neighbors cow.

/cow was fine

Considering that those are non-reuseable empty plastic tubes that used to sell in surplus stores for under $100, getting $200 from morans who think they are dangerous weapons is a great deal.

kob_zilla: The weapon shown in the pic is an M136 AT4 rocket launcher, but the yellow band indicates that it's an inert handling trainer. That tube never was loaded with a projectile, nor ever could be.


Shut up and stop interrupting the fear mongering...

people will start listening to the idea that maybe they don't need 10 handguns in their home.

I'm not sure how this idea of all gun owners being hoarders (not that 10 is anywhere near a hoard) came from. I'd be willing to bet 90-something percent of folks that own handguns either only own one, or own one plus a .22 . And of the guys who do own a bunch, most of those guys are either serious collectors and only care about rare,unusual, antique, historically significant etc. guns, or some type of competition shooter who competes in different classes and runs their guns hard enough to break them.

That would be brilliant, see if it works for the first one, then go back and buy more at the local surplus store. One can only assume that the local shops ran out of waste rocket launcher tubes.

chasd00: You know, I'm no fan of gun control at all (own several, including an omgscary AR-15) but if folks were really serious about it they'd ban ammunition sales to anyone except people licensed to purchase ammunition. Then make the license impossibly expensive and complicated to get.

/justsaying


Except then people would make their own.

How much does a Lee Loader cost these days?

He'd make somebody pay!

Mr. COCKBURN...do you think, perhaps, you're holding that rocket launcher a bit low?

If a thug/tard/jilted lover bashes in someone's skull with a baseball bat, that makes the bat an assault weapon. I blame Americas favorite pastime. All bats should be wiffel, lets get the teachers out there protesting MLB.
