More on the SWAT / Lego gun incident

    I am late in blogging it but in case you missed it … Last week Jeremy Bell, a Toronto resident, was arrested by SWAT officers when someone in the neighboring apartment saw him handling a gun built out of Lego bricks. I found his twitter page where he tweeted the experience …

    Hilarious! 12 cops and a chopper! I could imagine this response in a city where handguns are illegal, but unless I am mistaken handguns are legal in Toronto.

    He was building the gun from a kit sold by a company called Brickgun. In a recent tweet they said that they are overwhelmed by the orders that have been pouring in since the incident.

    Thanks for Chris and Jon for sending me the links.
