Hundreds of Firearms seized in UK police raid at house flying US flag
Officers have uncovered a stash of hundreds of guns in what is described as one of the biggest weapons seizures in the Metropolitan Police's history.

Three addresses were visited during dawn raids on Wednesday in Dartford, Kent, as part of an 18-month inquiry into shootings in north London.

A 55-year-old man has been arrested on suspicion of supplying firearms during the raids, which involved 30 officers.

Law enforcement agencies in the US have carried out linked raids in New Jersey.

Pump-action shotguns, automatic and semi-automatic weapons were seized in the raids, carried out by the Met's Operation Trident team, which investigates gun crime within London's black community.

Two homes - one of which was where the weapons were found - and a commercial premises were visited by detectives.


It is impossible to overestimate the misery and fear these weapons could have brought if they had got into the hands of criminals
Det Ch Supt Kevin Davis

The operation - codenamed Mokpo - was launched 18 months ago following a spate of shootings in north London involving rival gangs.

Det Ch Supt Kevin Davis, from Operation Trident, said: "This is the biggest firearms haul we (Operation Trident) have ever had.

"The premises raided were used to store hundreds and hundreds of weapons. I have never seen anything like it.

"There are guns everywhere. It will take us at least three days to log it all and bag up the evidence.

"It is impossible to overestimate the misery and fear these weapons could have brought if they had got into the hands of criminals."

The arrested man, who is a registered gun dealer, was led out under a blanket from his semi-detached house - which has a US flag flying from it - at about 1000 BST.

He has been taken to a north London police station for questioning.

What I do not understand from watching the news item is that, when the cameras were outside the house they could actually see the guns hanging from the wall.
So how come this raid took so long considering that after Dunblane, any gun now has to be locked up securely while not in use?

Impossible, this must be a false story, the Reverend Blair has banned guns in the UK so it stands to reason that no guns exist anymore. The guns used to kill people in our ever increasing gun crime culture are not real, they are pretend faux guns. (heavy sarcasm)

Blair and his cronies need shooting, they took away firearms from legal right minded citizens and handed over the balance of power to the perps, hope you're proud Tony, as far more people havr died from gun crime than there ever was at Dunblane!

During the seventies I remember a Mafia boss being interviewed on T.V. when America was having one of it`s periodical attempts to limit the sale of firearms.The gist of what he said was : "I`m a criminal so I`ll always have a gun; what I don`t want is for YOU to have one!"
