So it's not just American media that exaggerates.

    They're scared to death of firearms over there in some of them countries. Which is why they need to be bailed out, from time to time when the mean 'ol countries invade and spank their bottoms.

    Not a matter of country per se, but motivations are basically ignorance about firearms, copying and pasting the original source, "liberal" background of the big majority of the media all over the world, and most important, the need of selling by up-scaling sensationalism.

    I better watch it. If that's a big arsenal I guess I'm a big time arms dealer.

    Finding a .22 bullet on the ground in England is more of an archeological find. It indicates that many years ago a race of people lived there and they owned guns. I am surprised they didnt cordon off the whole area and preserve it as a historic site like Stonehenge..............

    Yes, that is very pertinent.

    We have picked up, off the street, quite a few bits of blood, snot and body parts since then mate.

    Hey shush, what British news outlet do you recommend we read to get an honest idy of what's going on over there and y'all s perspective on us in the USA?

    My wife was reading that story and mentioned the "200 rounds" thing. I reached next to my chair and said " this box has 333 rounds in it."

    I guess that 200 round thing would be impressive if they were artillery rounds....

    Remember the hysterical article from not long ago written by the libtard moonbat who penned that firing an AR-15 was more excitement than he could handle - the experience leaving his lungs breathless and his shoulder bruised and sore?

    We may need to start calling them out on such things, perhaps with a statement of "There are only two possibilities here: you're either shoveling sensationalist B.S., or you're a complete p---y. Tell us right now, A or B, which is it?"

    I will grant that other people may have a different idea of what constitutes an "arsenal" than I do, but I think we could at least agree that an "arsenal" would be more than a quantity that can be carried easily by a single man all at once. If you're saying "huge arsenal", I'm envisioning a sufficiency to arm companies or regiments.

    200 rounds..........what a puny amount I take more than that to the range with me for most calibers.

    I don't care if that story is six years old, that's frisking hilarious!

    I'm pretty sure that the response would have been the same if it was yesterday.

    Over at this side of the Atlantic the arsenal part of the story starts with the legality of the possession; I am wondering about the handgun part of it in France and maybe even the semi-auto part of long-guns. As far as I know (very little) France is hunting rifles only ( and the type of semi is critical)
