    No! Unless both BG's were both holding the same (one) chrome-plated firearm? (said two armed men holding a chrome-plated, blah, blah, blah...)

    I'm pretty sure she said two armed men, one holding a chrome plated semi-automatic handgun....


    So what's the wordplay? It sounds like a pretty straightforward report of a robbery.

    "Two men, black car, chrome-plated semi-auto gun, out-of-state plates, loud muffler." Even spoken three times in a 60sec news piece, trying to get folks to remember it clearly, it doesn't amount to much more than a basic description about the relevant characteristics of the felons.
