    Please switch to current events, put this in the wrong subforum

    Not sure where they are going to go with this headline. Perhaps more gun and weapons laws

    Authorities find rocket launcher, pipe bombs during raid on Florida white supremacist gangs

    The U.S. Attorney's Office for the Middle District of Florida announced Thursday that 39 members of the Unforgiven and United Aryan Brotherhood gangs were charged with various federal firearms and drug violations.
    Authorities seized more than 100 illegal firearms, a rocket launcher and several pipe bombs as part of the raid, local ABC affiliate WFTS-Tampa Bay reported. Authorities also reportedly found several pounds of crystal meth and fentanyl.

    So what makes these firearms illegal? Possession by bad guys? Possession by felons? Were they stolen?

    This is the .gov PIO default lexicon. It's not necessarily anti-gun. It just sounds more impressive to the sheeple.

    I have twice had marked cars closing for a 10-28 and saw my Blue Lives Matter bumper sticker. One bro tossed a salute as he passed. Somehow I think that a sticker cited above would not yield that.

    Two of the bombs appear to be oversized "mortar" type fireworks. And I dont see the "rocket Launcher" not to downplay the bust but when I dont see the pic, I start thinking fireworks mortar tube or the estes model rocket kit the meth monkeys stole from Jr.

    The link to the DoJ website lists those arrested and what federal charges are filed against them.

    Two pipe bombs are listed. No mention of a rocket launcher or other explosives, or firearms that would be illegal if possessed by a non-felon and non-drug dealing citizen.
