Hugh West was arrested after he tried to sell a zip gun to a passing motorist in the UK. The Daily Mail reports (emphasis mine …

West, 41, showed the flabbergasted driver the weapon and even demonstrated how it could be put together and be fired.

‘The driver said “I’m alright, I don’t need a gun” at which point the defendant put the gun back in his pocket and walked off.’

The stupidity of criminals never ceases to amaze me!

Many thanks to David for the link.
