A married couple of retirees mistook a real pistol for a toy one and went on trial. On Friday, August 27, reports “Moscow’s comsomolets”…
According to the 59-year-old woman, her brother left a weapon in her house several years ago. When the pensioner called him, he assured his sister that the pistol was flare and could be kept at home. Some time later, the woman decided to give the “toy” to the neighbor’s boy. She came to the neighbors and with the words “look what I have” pointed a gun at people. Then the child’s mother got scared and called the police.
Upon the arrival of the police, it turned out that the weapon was no longer a signal weapon – the previous owner made it suitable for shooting by removing the bushing. In this way, the pensioner and her husband fell under Article 222 of the Criminal Code of the Russian Federation (“Illegal possession of weapons”), and the woman was also charged with illegal carrying. The spouses received suspended sentences: the woman was 3.5 years, and her husband – 3 years.
Earlier, the police detained a pensioner, in whose apartment they found an arsenal of weapons – two pistols, a rocket launcher and cartridges. The pensioner also had rifle cartridges “related to standard ammunition for hand, rifled, hunting and sporting firearms.”
