Italian gangsters did not watch Lord of War

Italian police caught gangsters trying to purchase half a million AK-47s from Norinco (the Chinese state arms exporter) on behalf of a Libyan.

Apparently they were only purchasing 10 million round of ammo. Thats 50 20 rounds per gun – less than two one magazines worth.

They obviously did not watch that educational firm “Lord of War” which made it clear to all would be rebels that guns need

    Okay, someone has to nitpick and since I’m so good at it… that’s actually only 20 rounds of ammo for each gun.

    500,000 X 20 = 10,000,000

  • haha, thanks TheGunGeek

    … its been a long day ๐Ÿ˜‰

  • I love that movie! ๐Ÿ™‚

  • So do I! Its one of my favorites. Highly underrated in my opinion. It has a good social message as well – keeping guns out of the hand of criminals (as opposed to law abiding citizens).
