Burnaby Weapons Seized
It's hard to keep up with all the weapons seized involved in all the drug related violence in Vancouver but this last one has two interesting points to note. First, for some strange reason the police didn't release the name of the accused. That is odd. Second is one of the firearms found and seized. It was a Uzi with a long silencer. Just like the one found dumped in the Fraser river back in 2009 which the police say was involved in some Vancouver gang related shootings.
We've all heard of the Saturday night Special. Well the Uzi with a long silencer is fast becoming the Vancouver special edition. The Uzi is amazingly fast yet horribly inaccurate due to the short barrel. Adding the long silencer and all of a sudden you lengthen the barrel and improve the trajectory.
As I said before, there was a funny scene in the movie Grand Torino. Two groups of gang bangers in cars were talking shit to each other. One group pulled out a gun as if to say back off and stfu. The other group then pulled out an Uzi and shouted back how many bullets you got? Funny in a movie but no so funny in real life.
I'm really curious why the police didn't release the name of the person who was in possession of those firearms. Come on, which grow ops aren't run by the Hells Angels? We know Uncle Joe from Kelowna was caught in Salmon Arm with a cache load of weapons and a few associates. Shortly thereafter the police seized some cocaine in Salmon arm and found an abandoned grow op there. We know Randy Potts was found with six guns, four silencers and four grenades.
There was a "major" drug ring in Kamloops recently busted with connections to Surrey where a grenade was found in a baby's room. A major drug ring in Kamloops connected to Surrey which was the hub of the Jones brother's operation. How could that not be connected to the Hells Angels as well?
