Sandy Hook gun on sale in UK – also tanks
“MASSACRE GUNS ON SALE IN UK,” yells the Sun. “Lethal assault rifles like the one uses in America’s Sandy Hook massacre are being LEGALLY sold in Britain.”
No shocks. Back in 2009, Anorak spotted the “invisibility cloaked” tank at the Defence & Security Equipment International show, the largest world’s arms fair. In 2011, 1,200 defence manufacturers converge in London to show everything from the latest unmanned aircraft to camouflage body paint. The show is back in London this September.
But that’s not what the Sun has discovered:
A Welsh-based firm is advertising a Ruger SR-22 semi-automatic as a “clone” of an AR-15, the gun loner Adam Lanza used to kill 26 people. Shocked campaigners said: ‘It’s frightening'”
The Sun says legally-owned guns have been used to murder in Hungerford, Dumblane and Cumbria. The paper uses its editorial to say another “bloodbath” is only a matter of time.
Maybe the organ can begin its crusade against firearms at its News Corp HQ. The Board of Directors include James W. Breyer, of Accel Partners, a venture capital firm that has worked with WalMart, a store where you can buy all manner of guns and ammo.
