The rocket launcher was empty, inoperable, but they bought it no questions asked, makes me wonder if Dick Tracy just blew what could have been an investigation leading to someone dealing in arms from Ft. Lewis, or a terrorist cell?
The police chief said the launcher 'was the reason we need universal background checks'. Really, he said that.
They got neary 800 weapons, about half rifles & shotguns, the rest pistols, from the news report. Since long guns are not generally used in crimes, they only potentially got 400 guns 'off the street', as they say. However, since 4, yes, 4, of those handguns were found to be stolen, the true number of guns 'off the street' should be reckoned on the fingers of one hand.
