Rocket Launcher In New Jersey

THE right to bear arms:

CBS) JERSEY CITY A Jersey City woman made what to her and her neighbors was a shocking discovery Friday morning when she noticed a military rocket launcher lying in the grass.

Niranjana Besai was leaving her house, located at 88 Nelson Street, to go to work just after 8 a.m. when she spotted the launcher on her front lawn.

“I read it and it [said] ‘missile,'” Besai told CBS 2 HD. “There was little ‘missile’ [writing] on it.”

She immediately called police.

Sources tell CBS 2 HD that the device is an AT-4 missile launcher that is used to fire against tanks and buildings. The device was first approved by the U.S. Army in 1985 and its very powerful warheads can penetrate through more than a foot of armor.

Each launcher can be used only once, however, and the device found on Besai’s lawn was said to have been used previously. It was deemed inoperable and turned over U.S. Army officials at the New Jersey’s Fort Monmouth.

Who will sell it to the Britsh Army…
