    If I read it right, they were US made M16s that we sold to Q8. The weapons belonged to Q8 and were not guarded at one of their armories. Your title is misleading.

    It did say it was reported by The Interior Ministry.I wonder if they belonged to the U.S.,or,did Kuwait purchase them?That's still a lot of firepower to be left unguarded.

    I hate it when that happens.
    It may be that your sole purpose in life is simply to serve as a warning to others.

    They probably have been sitting there for 20 years since Desert Storm.

    Probably a mechanism to get the guns to groups we don't officially support.. .like Syria?
    "Gun Free Zones" is where only criminals carry guns.

    We all knew confiscation was on the way. I guess it arrived a little sooner than we thought.

    20000 M16 Rifle Rounds and 15000 9mm Pistol Rounds Stolen

    Appears it was only M16 ammo, not rifles. This report came a few days later.

    There was a discussion on DC about this last week FYI.

    Prior discussion here.

    I'm not sure what the real story is but ammo makes more sense.

    Perhaps Eric Holder was in charge of these weapons or ammo whatever it was. We all know his track record of keeping up with stuff.
    Firing a suppressed is on my Bucket List.

    I'm just a spoke in the wheel but not a big deal.

    America...a Constitutional Republic. NOT a democracy as the liberals would have us believe.
