Well, as y'all know any time firearms charges are laid they have to do the big display of the "arsenal", some poor schmuck has his gun and knife collection spread out over a couple of tables for the local media to tut-tut over and film and take pictures and make up a bunch of nonsense over.
Today something new has been added, by the Toronto (Red) Star: Under the title "Weapons stockpile seized in Mississauga raid"
Peel Regional Police have arrested a 27-year-old Mississauga man after they seized a cache of weapons last week at an apartment on Arista Way.Police say they were investigating the trafficking of firearms to members of a gang within the Region of Peel.Last Wednesday, police raided an apartment on Arista Way, in the Hurontario and Burnamthorpe Rd. E. area, and seized two revolvers, five rifles, a sawed-off shotgun, 30 replicas/pellet guns, 25 various weapons and more than 1,000 rounds of ammunition.In a new over-reaching of moral outrage, the Star has decided that 1000 rounds of mixed calibers, five rifles, two pistols and a shotgun constitute a "stockpile". I've seen guys show up at the range with more stuff than that for an afternoon's plinking. I guess arsenal is old hat, now the new lingo is "weapons chache" and "stockpile".
