    The alleged MP5 submachine gun turned out to be 22LR. Probably one of those GSG plinker guns. From the photo, it appears he also had a number of fake suppressors, some grips and a pair of sunglasses. Great photo opportunity.

    I'm not defending the guy, who sounds like a junkie, but it's not an arsenal. If they mean "arsenal" in the sense of a military arsenal, I'd hate to see the poor soldiers who are stuck with 22LR. What's their side weapon, a bow and arrow?

    I think the tipster probably meant "arsenal" as a collection or supply of weapons or munitions, which it was, albeit small. The Times referred to it correctly as a "cache," in this instance, as in a collection of items of the same type stored in a hidden or inaccessible place.

    If true, how did they not deserve to get investigated or busted? Heroin, explosive devices, felon in possession? How's that make the police "worse"? Do you think this makes gun owners look good?
    There are some different kind of views about obeying the law expressed in this thread. o_O

    Aside from the heroin.. What was wrong?
    Lmao, a "powerful" MP5.. These people know nothing of what they write.. It may as well be pure fiction.. For it nearly almost is.

    Good eye! Didn't see that at first look. As far as the rest of it goes, it pretty much looks
    like a "trip to the range". Except there is no ammo. Given that at least half of the guns
    are 22LR, I guess that's understandable. Too bad that it's probably all destined for
    destruction.

    I hate when they destroy an Archaic Browning .22 lr auto pistol or a 1949 Early Ruger Standard mark 1 (Serial # less than 100)

    "The poor bastard" was selling heroin. Were the cops wrong in arresting him?

    This is why I discontinued my subscription to the Seattle Times. I subscribe to another newspaper now.

    I refuse to empower the Times with my subscription money. No wonder they're all going under.
