‘Guns2Thugs’ website owner jailed over illegal imports - only one problem: he hasn't actually done anything wrong …link


  1. From his website, buyers could select anything from a Browning 9mm to a Walther P99, Geco Mod 225. or Beretta 9mm, which all fired CS capsules or flares. All are illegal in the UK.

    hasn’t actually done anything wrong

    Maybe not wrong but surely selling illegal weapons is, erm, illegal? Please explain.

    Mr Andrew Lloyd-Eley, defending, said: “Guns2Thugs was a name of monumental stupidity.”

    I reckon it’s pretty clever.

  2. Er, because just because something is illegal does not mean it is wrong.
