and now I believe you are exagarating the influx of weapons from the East, too
how can i be exagerating when i didn't give a figure.
but if they are available as a normal good and not only through black market anybody can get them just like...
high powered gas fired weapons are available and have been for some time. it would be possible to kill with these weapons, but i've never heard of such a thing on the news.
It wouldn't be wise to wave a bb gun about though as the police use more effective firearms.
