Stamford Police Recover Automatic Handgun with Illegal Ammo

Police said it was recovered from a scene where two suspicious males fled from arriving police.


Stamford police are searching for two suspects who allegedly dropped an automatic handgun loaded with illegal ammo Saturday morning, authorities said Monday.

According to police, two officers on patrol just after midnight Friday spotted what police called "two suspicious males" hanging out on the 200 block of Greenwich Ave.

Police said when they exited the vehicle to speak with the males, both of the suspects took off running. Police said they recovered at the scene an automatic pistol loaded with hollow-point ammunition, which is illegal to own for everyone except law enforcement.

Descriptions of the suspects were unavailable.

"Police said they recovered at the scene an automatic pistol loaded with hollow-point ammunition, which is illegal to own for everyone except law enforcement." This, along with the headline, is totally incorrect. It is perfectly legal to own hollow-point ammunition here in CT or any other state in the USA. Feel free to check with the State Police if you don't believe me. The only people not allowed to own hollow point bullets (or any other bullets) are convicted felons.

Here goes the GUNHATING NAZI MEDIA Again. Saying everything is illegal. They are going to LIE- LIE- LIE as usual about guns. They will call semi-autos 'Fully Automatic"- to - ANY gun being a 'assault style'. They need to be sued for lying like this.
