What's wrong with this guy!? Doesn't he know only criminals have guns in England?
A West Midlands man who bought gun parts on the so-called Dark Web has been sentenced to 10 months in prison. Moynul Haque, 21, paid about £900 in Bitcoins for the slide, barrel and recoil spring of a Glock 9mm pistol. The unnamed seller hid the parts in an antique radio and posted it to Haque from an address in Michigan. …
But then when was the last time we heard of someone rampaging with a pistol in the UK? Or being killed by their toddler who got hold of a gun?
There's a reason they've come down so hard on him for attempting to own something deemed dangerous and illegal (without sufficient clearance and firearms training).
What is that? a .38 Saturday Night Special?
If it ain't my $600+ Glock-21, Colt 45 or Sig Sauer
It ain't a real handgun!
BUT THEN I would add this one!!!
And cuz of the Hotties with Gunz Photos:
EFF YEAH !!!!
Judge Peter Barrie, said: "You turned £900 into bitcoins to pay. Spending that sort of money by someone not in work is not something that can be treated as idle curiosity or as the result of trying to look cool with friends. I find it all rather baffling."
Dear Judge Peter Barrie,
£57.35 per week based on age and N.I. contributions would mean the defendant would have to not spend one single penny for 16 weeks to gain £900 without even taking into account bitcoin exchange rates. So if you were to think for a minute you would realise that coupled with the Class B drugs Mr Haque had in his possession he is either stealing, dealing or someone else helped provide the funds. It's not baffling to anyone who uses their brain.
P.S. Being a gamer often means a large outlay on computer equipment, another red flag, to be fair though that one should have be picked up by our upstanding members of the constabulary.
The source article doesn't mention how long he had been unemployed, what (if anything) he had worked at before and for how long, so he could have made his assorted purchases with money from previous employment. It's certainly possible that his funds came from irregular sources, but it's nowhere near as certain as you seem to think.
"by someone not in work" is probably more likely by "someone not officially in work".
I've seen my neighbour who is "someone not in work" take UPS and other deliveries at least twice a week, the place is spotless, astroturf back garden, new clothes whenever I see him, just came back off holiday, strangely computer and house lights are on till about 5AM, he must stay up worrying about being "not in work" I suppose.
