    Where I come from, an inert M136 tube isn't considered a weapon. Evidently, L.A.'s finest doesn't know you can get these and that they're legal to own. Well, they're legal to own in New York so I assume they're OK in California. Also where I come from, a toy handgun and a bb gun don't qualify as weapons.

    13-Year-Old Among 2 Arrested On Suspicion Of Possessing Stolen Military Weapon

    COLTON (CBS) — Two people, including a 13-year-old boy, were arrested Friday on suspicion of possessing a military-grade weapon believed to have been stolen.

    Colton police said in a statement released that officers were dispatched to the 1100 block of South Mohave Drive about 6:59 p.m. Friday.

    Upon arrival, they saw a male, later identified as a 13-year-old boy, sitting on top of a roof and holding a possible rifle.

    According to police, the suspect ran into a nearby apartment, which a K9 subsequently searched after authorities contacted the owner.

    Three weapons were recovered, including an inert M136 AT4 “LAW” anti-tank weapon, a b.b. gun rifle and a replica 9mm hand gun, police said.

    Mario Bruton Sr., 43, was booked into county jail and the 13-year-old was taken to juvenile hall on suspicion of possession of a stolen weapon and possession of illegal weapons.

    The U.S Army is expected to confiscate the weapon, police added.

    All of that for a damn inert law tube, and bb gun, and a replica 9mm. Wow, they should go out and have steak dinners and give each other high fives after that heroic event.. That sounds like something the feds would do then brag about it.

    I dont see it in the story where it was an inert/spent LAW.

    If it was....

    It sure brings to light some on here who claim that "local police are gun friendly and your friends, its only the Feds you have to worry about"

    AWESOME bust boys, you took some seriously deadly weaponry off the street, contless eyes have been saved by getting that evil Crossman 177 of the streets....not to mention all the lives saved by getting that evil (toy) 9mm out of the hands of evil doers.:rolleyes:

    Wouldn't these LEOs be better employed chasing down Latin Kings,

    or busting a dope ring somewhere?

    Ya, that definately sounds like something the feds would do. They could use one of their conspiracy laws on them

    I thought the medical industry had stopped doing lobotomies. Evidently, I'm wrong, as that seems to be a prerequisite of joining the LA law enforcement units.

    And actually risk their lives? Why do that when they can bust children in possesion of toys and unusable military trash?

    I remember the days when LAPD and CHP's were the envy of other agencies across the LEO communities.

    This is embarrassing of them and sad if they don't feel it.

    Not exactly true.......as you can stuff them with unsaftied grenades, hand them in a tree/overhead cover and rig them to spread the load when a trip wire is triggered......(GW 101) . OTOH, kinda cool, (and safe) toys for kids with an abundance of imagination and energy wanting to play "soldier" !

    Of course it makes the weenies "childhood obesity" arguments all the better when kids can't burn off calories with "confrontational games" like dodge ball, basketball, soldier, commando, and anything else they can dream up outside adult PC organizing strictures !

    Bet these kids got the message, too ! >MW

    Hell their only a one time use then they are just a tube, i figured that they would sell them at the surplus stores. They sell those hollowed out grenades by the boat load, whats the difference?

    I second that. More ignorance, but plenty of overzealousness too.
