    Default FL gang busted with dangerous "anti-tank weapon" - HA

    If this isn't the most irresponsible fear-mongering headling, I don't know what is:

    Anti-Tank Grenade Launcher Seized In Massive Crime Ring Bust

    http://www.wftv.com/news/15785942/detail.html

    I read the story thinking that I'd be reading about a gang that had gotten their hands on an AT-4, a LAAW, or an RPG. But lo and behold, it's a WWII British PIAT launcher that hasn't been in service since 1950.

    So, anybody got any spare PIAT rounds sitting around? If not, then this bad ass FL gang essentially has a spring gun.

    Unbelievable.

    Even without a live round, deputies showed off the power of a WWII-era grenade launcher Thursday. Whoooooo how can you show the power of something with out a live round. This is one of the most Irresponsible storys I have ever read.

    Or startle them with the sound of the spring.

    I bet it was all for show. They can say 'they got the biggest gat around.' Probably just a novelty weapon, never intending to use it.
