Why the fuck do the LEOs feel the need to display the weapons used in a crime ?!?!
I also notice that they only do that when it's certain scary weapons.
Oh wait..............I know why they do it.

What pisses me off is the fact that the Bushmaster WASN'T even USED in the crime, it may have been in the vehicle IIRC but played NO part in his action.

Unless of course that "Evil" rifle made him pick up a shotty and gun down seven people

Thanks for the pics Lumpy196

That's a postban Bushmaster. Don't you know, it's not dangerous like those evil AW's. Our extremely intelligent law makers banned all the dangerous guns.

Nice pics, Lumpy!

I agree with Spectre about the police publishing photos of the murder weapons. They were killed with guns; the type of guns used shouldn't matter.

That's the face of the man who killed most of the family of one of my friends. I imagine he's in a hot place if his disappearance means his actions finally caught up with him.

That stock kind of looks like the one on the Sig 556 a bit. Is that a battery comparment near the lower edge or is it just the sling?
