    England: Stolen "Sniper style air rifle"

    http://www.thisishampshire.net/news/..._raid/?ref=rss

    A SNIPER-style air rifle has been stolen during a raid on a Hampshire shooting range.

    Police are now urgently appealing for anyone who knows where the gun is to get in touch, fearing it could be "extremely dangerous in the wrong hands".

    It was stolen along with two Dell laptops worth approximately 850, a projector worth 600-700 and 1,000 in cash, when burglars forced their way into the water sports office at the Southampton University Boat Hard and Rifle Range in Mead Crescent, Swaythling.

    Fifty pellets were taken with the air arms .22 black and woodstock air rifle, which was housed in a black case.

    Detective Sergeant Will Whale, based at Southampton Central police station, said: "This 'sniper style' rifle could prove extremely dangerous in the wrong hands.

    "I want this gun back - it should not be on the streets."

    Anyone with information should call PC Kate Andrews at Portswood police station on 101, or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.

    Hm. Stolen during the raid, eh? Then, why are the police appealing to anyone, urgently or otherwise? They should check the "evidence" room or the trunks of the cars driven by the responding public "servants."

    I think the author used "raid" like we use "burglary".
    Pellet guns are illegal in England? Sorry ass Brits...

    With a range of 5 miles and the ability of the pellet to turn corners, this has to be taken off the street.

    Time to get out the "English" to "English" dictionary.
    In this case, "raid" is the same as "break-in".

    You have to understand the Brits, god bless them, but they have an unquestioned faith in the police and government. In the old days, it was a very homogeneous population, everyone was like everyone else, so crime was not an issue. With the influx of foreigners, the U.K. is not the same. Especially big cities like London. I walked around and said, "Where did all the Brits go?"
