    UK Police Arrest Drunk Driver with 'Assassin's Kit' and "self loading" pistol

    Assassin's guns hidden in pram | The Sun |News

    Published: 19 Aug 2008
    ARMED police examine an �assassin’s kit� they found in a car boot — hidden under a pram.

    The lethal haul included a pistol with silencer and an AK47 assault rifle.

    Police swooped on a grey VW Golf after being told that a CCTV camera had picked up a rifle on the passenger seat.

    The driver was asked if any other weapons were in the car and allegedly replied: �You should take a look in the boot.�

    Cops retrieved the AK47, along with a Desert Eagle self-loading pistol, a Glock 17 pistol, a revolver and an air rifle.

    There were also several rounds of ammunition and a camouflage vest — all tucked beneath the pram and a collection of old vinyl LPs.

    A man was arrested at the scene and later charged with drink driving.

    He was bailed on firearms matters.

    Police spent nearly an hour bagging and tagging the weapons and other items seized in Manchester city centre.

    One local said: �The suspect was sitting in the front with a rifle. He was questioned at the roadside, against the wall, before he was placed into the back of a marked police car.

    �You don’t expect to see that outside your house. It is worrying, given the concern over gun crime.�

    Lewis O’Dowd, 24, of Northenden, Manchester, will face city magistrates on August 27, accused of drink driving.
    shame on guns...now pistols self-load? what's next..self firing guns? ooh wait, we have those already.

    Pram is a British term for a baby stroller, just like they refer to a cars trunk as a "boot".

    Holy cow! Those Brits cops would die of fright if they saw what I carry in my truck sometimes...

    I was wondering the same thing. I though they got rid of all those nasty guns over there in Britopia.

    Is this hard to understand? Then why does it get unintelligible to some people when 5 little words are changed?

    Do any of the UK cops know how to unload a firearm, or do they have to make a phone call to an "average American" citizen here in the States?

    I love the Brits, they are stoic and long suffering. I like the description of the find: "Several rounds of ammunition, and vinyl LP's."
    "Good god, man, I hope it wasn't the Peter Gunn Theme!"
    Around here if you're found with several rounds of ammunition, you're on the way home.

    The trial was delayed while the court tried to find a turntable on which to play the evidence
    Elementary, my dear Watson, the LP's were by Michael Jackson, and the man was taking them to the country to shoot them so no one would suffer any more.

    An "assassin's kit," hm? What is that, and how would they know?

    and an air rifle
    There's the REAL problem, he just wanted to be like Red Rider.

    What I find interesting is they picked up a rifle in the passenger seat via CCTV. What would happen if they say, oh I dunno, spent that money and trained their Cops to use a firearm and then bought them some?

    I saw a story where the average Brit is observed on a CCTV camera 3000 times a day.
    Remember the bombing in London? Those LEO's tracked down the perps and followed their moves using all the cameras around the site.

    How many arrests? Zero. Security couldn't find them. Somebody made a lot of money from your tax dollars.

    I think in G.B. they take it more seriously. When I've gone through customs in London airports, I notice a camera watching me as the customs agent asks questions. I've even seen them turn the camera into baby carriages to ID babies. Another camera scans your passport while the agent stamps it.
