You may remember those deadly “rocket launchers” reported in the media, turned in at an L.A. gun buyback. Well, they’re really inert, and not a danger. An AT-4 rocket, is a one shot weapon system, best described as a throw away bazooka made of a fiberglass, or similar composite material. One of the tubes turned out to be a completely inert training device. The other was an empty throw away, that would make a good souvenir, you might find at the surplus store.
Which brings to light, the purpose of such devices being reported as, “[...] weapons of war, weapons of death [...]” by LAPD Chief Charlie Beck. When these items posed no threat to anyone. It looks more like the actions of those seeking relevancy. When the usefulness of such anti-gun buybacks are questionable to begin with.
