Hmm just when you thought you had seen it all...

Post by Tom Bombadil on Sun Mar 20, 2011 2:10 pm

...Sweden in the news for a weapons related story.

[img][/img]


The police had received a tip off that the 54-year-old man was hoarding a
bevy of unlicensed firearms in his house and performed a raid.


"They are therapy to keep off the drink," the man told police
interrogators, according to the local Norrländska Demokraten (NSD).


Aside from the six more conventional weapons found in the apartment and a
quantity of ammunition, police discovered that a wall-mounted guitar
was not quite as it first appeared.


The neck of the guitar has been hollowed out and equipped with two
shotgun barrels, while the body of the string instrument contained the
beginnings of trigger mechanism.


In police interviews the man described the home made musical weapon as "a fun thing that was not finished".


Police found a further six weapons including a sawn off shotgun, a home
made sub-machine gun, a Mauser rifle, two revolvers and a walking stick
adapted to function as a rifle.


Stickers belonging to three known gangs in the Luleå area were also
found at the man's house and led to police suspicions that the
54-year-old was buying and selling stolen weapons.

That does not bode well for scrutiny in the security lines packin a guitar anymore. Things were easier before. That sucks man.

That guitar is killer! Booming bass! High caliber workmanship. Great for playing death metal or .38 special?


Am I the first to visit the corner in the new forum?

Perhaps this is somehow connected to Ragtime's "trigger thumb". < grin >

What a blast! That guitar really hits the target! Whatever song you play becomes "Number one with a bullet!" "Hey dude-shoot me an A so I can tune up."
Just the instrument to use for the relentless heckler in the audience!

Make room in the corner!
