Guns Headed for Portland Intercepted in Jamaica

A multi-million dollar shipment of guns and ammunition, headed for Portland, Oregon was intercepted in Jamaica today...
According to the Jamaica Gleaner, the cache included "five brand new semi-automatic pistols, three high-powered rifles, two shotguns and an AK-47 rifle, plus 85 assorted rounds of ammunition". Authorities have been silent about the remainder of the shipment, which no one has attempted to claim.
Details were received by Glenroy Sinclair of the Gleaner.

His story is online.

1/2 Million $$ 09.Apr.2004 16:00

sorry

but the few guns mentioned hardly qualifies for a 1/2 million bucks. Anyway all but the AK 47 are legal in PDX anyway. Not that I necessrily agree but it is hardly news. Scare tactics? I dont know but I am more concerned about the guns the police have than some tiny boat with guns in Jamaica

again

AK-47s are legal in Oregon.

No plebian in this country w/o a federal license may posess a *full-auto* weapon, regardless of what it is.
