14 year old finds someone's "boating accident"

This has to suck. Bet someone buried them to prevent registration or confiscation.

Quote:When a 14-year-old took a metal detector to the wasteland near his home in Manchester, England, on Saturday his goal was to turn up some scrap metal. Little did he know that what he would find instead would leave his dad in fear, refusing even to give out the family’s name.

Instead of scrap metal, the boy ended up finding four shotguns, a semi-automatic rifle and thousands of rounds of ammunition — “15,000″ to be exact, according to the father.

"I started panicking and just called the police. It was pretty scary."


That says it all.


I can't imagine what it must be like, to live in utter fear of inanimate objects.

Let's not forget this:

Quote:Bullet found in doorway
By David Williams
LETHAL: The .22 calibre bullet found in Walthamstow High Street on a market day morning (D6W1001)

LIVE <all caps in original>ammunition has been found lying in the doorway of a busy high street shop.

The .22 calibre short round bullet was found at the entrance of the 99p Stores in Walthamstow High Street on Wednesday morning, November 1.

Haroon Khan, who has a firearms licence and is a member of a local gun club, was alarmed to discover live ammunition in a Walthamstow doorway.

The bullet, of Swiss origin, was still in its brass casing, complete with enough gunpowder for it to fire itself.

Mr Khan said that if it had been struck hard enough or exposed to heat it could have gone off.

"This sort of thing should not be lying around. It was live, primed and active," he said. "But rather me pick it up than a little kid.

"How can you feel safe when you are finding things like this on the street?

"To get hold of one of these is not easy. You have to go through a scrutinised search, you need a licence and you have to belong to a club."

Ammunition of this kind would ordinarily be used in a small handgun or pistol, and both can be owned legally under licence.

But to leave strictly controlled goods out in the street would be enough for a firearms licence to be revoked.

The bullet has been examined at a Metropolitan Police laboratory and details about it kept for future reference.

A police spokesman said: "Recovering firearms and ammunition is a priority for the police. We take the same view of ammunition as we do of a gun.

"If it goes bang, it is still lethal."

Police are treating the unattended ammunition as a crime. Mr Khan alerted them at 10.16am, and they arrived at his shop to pick up the bullet at 11.32am.

I can't imagine living there.

I've been thinking about doing a tour of old world historical sites in Great Britain, but I'm just not sure that I could stand to be in such a hoplophobic society.

Yeah no shit right? Quote from the article:

Quote:I took it all home, then I saw the guns. I started panicking and just called the police. It was pretty scary.

What it should have said:

Quote:”I took it all home, then I saw the guns. I started jumping for joy and just couldn't stop smiling. It was pretty fucking awesome.”

I wonder...is his terror because of the weapon, or because of what might happen to him if he was discovered with them and someone thought they were his?

Either way, that is pure suck.

There was a case about a new homeowner in England who had found a shotgun in a plastic bag buried in the yard. He called the police but no one came, so he brought it to the station himself and was arrested and imprisoned.

Was this him?
