What counts as a machine gun in the UK?

 

I believe this is a witness description rather than an authoritative statement.....As I said above, it is entirely possible that it was a SMG, it wouldn't be the first time, here's a 2016 story:

Another from 2008, slightly different MO:

IIRC the weapons from this one turned up in all manner of interesting places.  ;)

Only nine months after the fact.

 

I'm sure the casinos and Las Vegas Convention and Visitors Association determined that enough time has gone by that releasing this footage wouldn't harm the bottom line.

More from Hard Ingush about operation in Nazran, with video (NSFW)

https://vk.com/hardblogline?w=wall-162348734_4036

 

Quote

   "In the evening of June 7, the commander said that in the morning we will go on searches in two settlements of Ingushetia and two in North Ossetia. Nothing unusual, a simple verification of information about the possible existence of extremist literature and other prohibited items.
   We are already accustomed to these planned checks on the eve of the holidays (Russia Day on June 12) and the World Cup.

 

   They divided the boys into five groups and identified the addresses. At a meeting with the operatives, they asked if there could be weapons.
   They said that no, the usual "chairborn Mujahideens", which on the Internet place lectures of radical preachers. Early in the morning lined up and each group went with their operative. By eight in the morning three addresses in Ossetia and three addresses in Ingushetia had already been examined, six people were detained. A lot of interesting things have been discovered - besides extremist literature - weapons, explosives ready for sabotage, shahid belts and hatabkis [home made small grenades], as well as bottles with flamable liquid.

 

   The alleged leader of the group had a buyat "Islamic state". About 8:15 the boys called from one of the addresses in Nazran - we have fire contact, send reinforcements.
Well, the commander singled out 20 people already free and sent them to help the boys, because there were only eight people there. We jumped on GAZ and URAL.
We come, a "decent" address. The operative is talking with a man, as it turned out - the head of the family, a former lieutenant colonel of the police.

   According to the situation, 2 Aupovs sons with weapons and their mother barricaded in the house, and the father has been negotiating for an hour to get out them of the address. He managed to get my wife and child out of one of the bandits. During the time when the armored URAL was moving on a narrow street, the truck body hit the gate of home ownership and the shooting started immediately from house. The commander already wanted to give the command for the assault, but the chief from the operatives said that we must continue to negotiate. Father again went to persuade his wife and his sons to lay down their arms and surrender, but in failed. Even when based on the reviewed video from GO-Pro, it is clear that when the father was negotiating in the back of the house there was a movement, his sons looked out from one of the rooms and told him that they will not come out and fall as martyrs ...

 

   Ayupov Magomed, "Abu Muavia"
   After that the commander decided to go with shields to try to at least bring the mother out alive, although I did not quite understand the operatives, because in all the concepts she was the accomplice of the bandits. Well, there was a fight, under the cover of the fire that started in house, these two scum tried to escape through the backyard, where they were taken out by the punishing hand of justice. After extinguishing the fire, and analysis of place, several improvised explosive devices, "Saiga", a Kalashnikov rifle, ammunition, hattabki, extremist literature, mobile equipment were found.

 

   When the danger for the operatives was dealt with, we withdrew and went back to the base. "

 

   After 4 days it is fun to watch, as the anonymous authors of the Ingush websites and publications referring to "the word of witnesses", which did not exist there, because the cordon stood for a few streets, a post materials about "extrajudicial executions".

 

   Mother, unfortunately, also died. According to the conclusion of the pathologist - she received a deadly gunshot wound. Ballistic experts reported that the bullet withdrawn from her body was from the "Saiga" found in house. The son killed the mother.

 

   According to the procedural concepts, the mother - in fact, was their accomplice - sheltered them in her house and refused to surrender, that is, assisted them in the crime. In fact, after the first shot towards the officers, all the negotiations were supposed to end and the bandits had to be dealth with, but operatives were negotiating with them for another hour and a half after that.

 

   We tried to keep these people strayed from life, even though they did not deserve it. These are the humane "death squads" in Ingushetia - they try to keep the bandit alive until the last.

 

   Special thanks to the father for his courage, despite the threat to die at the hands of his ill-fated sons, he until the last moment negotiated and tried to save their useless lives.

 

   P.S .: tracks have already inspected the phones and computer of these bandits. They were the main ideologists of a large group, spreading instructions for making IEDs and conducting subversive war against "infidels" and "imams murji'ah" (they have even already been defined list of Salafi religious leaders, who in their opinion were subject to extrajudicial executions).  Thanks to well-coordinated work, we managed to prevent several murders and terrorist acts. All details are not disclosed, since the search of accomplices continues.

Clearly New Jersey needs stronger gun laws, even though they have some of the strongest in the nation. Hey everyone, let's all blame inanimate objects and make up excuses to take away things from people who have not and would never do anything wrong with said objects!

Interesting that they were willing to print hearsay that "neighborhood beef" was the cause right away.

 

Gonna be some people looking mighty stupid, for example, if this really turns out to have been terrorism.

News reports are doubling down on the "gang related" theory. Which seems likely at this point.

The shooting appears to be a gang-related dispute, Onofri said.

 

...

 

Prior to the shooting, fights broke out inside and outside Roebling Wire Works, where the annual event was held. Police attempted to disperse the crowd and urged the organizers to shut down the festival, Onofri said. 

"Those individuals continued to loiter and additional fights broke out, and then the shooting occurred," Onofri said, noting the suspects first shot at each other before police opened fire. 

Authorities said Wells was carrying a handgun with an extended magazine -- a gun that's illegal to possess in New Jersey. It was one of several guns recovered at the scene. Authorities also commented on his violent past. 

 

...

 

It is possible that some victims were injured by cops' bullets as officers were shooting at the suspects, officials said. How many shots were fired in all is still under investigation, they said.

Spezialeinsatzkommandos (SEK) in Cologne (district of Khorweiler), 12.06.2018.
   After the police operation in the Cologne district, Chorweiler new details became public. According to SPIEGEL, suspect Sief Allah H. was working on an explosive device, which may have been containing large doses of toxic substance ricin. This is reported by "Kölner Stadt-Anzeiger".

I'm quite late on this, but it's interesting:

http://www.foxnews.com/world/2018/06/14/islamic-extremist-ricin-attack-in-germany-has-been-foiled-prosecutors.html

 

Quote

An Islamic terrorism plot to launch a deadly attack with the toxin ricin was reportedly thwarted in Germany, prosecutors revealed Thursday.

Authorities said a 29-year-old Tunisian, identified only as Sief Allah H., was taken into custody Wednesday after an investigation uncovered he had procured the materials needed to create ricin in mid-May and even succeeded in creating the toxin earlier this month.

Investigators found the toxin after a search of his apartment in Cologne, federal prosecutors in Karlsruhe said in a written statement.

I don't suppose anyone noticed a local newspaper in Maryland getting shot up?

 

I heard they used facial recognition software to ID the shooter because he had taken steps to hide his identity, like damaging his fingertips.

I just thought it was weird that no one mentioned it considering the amount of media attention it got.  Sounds like it was an example of a local nutjob shooting up some innocent local reporters.  Very sad.

Update: it was domestic violence... someone got mad at their partner and shot at them. No one was hit, and the suspect surrendered without further incident.

Was going to post, but life's been busy. 

 

The amount of posturing by CNN about shotguns has been really entertaining. Listening to them try to explain them like they are the newest most advanced murder machines ("that he purchased legally!") Only discredits their opinions further. 

 

Still sad. Trump said some nice things. 

 

Guy was a nutjob. In a population of size X there will be a percentage Y of nutjob.

Let me guess (I have limited Internet access) the media in the first few hours/day tried to pin this shooting on Trump while wishing the shooter wore a #MAGA hat, until it was discovered the shooter had different motives that were apolitical/personal. Forcing the media to promptly bury the story.

Are you a wizard?

Also some NBC(?) put out a tweet about shotguns being "reverse funnels" that you don't have to aim.
