COLUMBIA — Columbia Police Department investigators have determined the firearms and narcotics discovered Monday night at a Bonny Linn Drive residence are illegal.

Among the firearms was a stolen handgun that was linked to a northeast Columbia burglary, according to an email from Sgt. Jill Schlude. Ammunition, high-capacity magazines, firearm suppressors, marijuana, crack cocaine, ecstasy and scales were also found.

I would be curious to see some photos of the items found ie. guns, ammo, clips and the amount of drugs.

I would like to see what they consider high capacity compared to what normal gun owners have. And what many people do not realize is that Fire Arm Suppressors are legal in Missouri as well as 37 other states.

I only bring this up because years ago a relative of mine got into trouble because of a roommate doing illegal prescription drug activities and during the search of the apartment they found my brothers 30 aut 6 and his .22 single shot rifle from the 50. The news paper read Drugs and fire arms and ammo found in the house. Technically they were correct but they made it sound like he was ready for war.

Was the handgun "illegal" only because it was stolen? The wording seems a bit suspect to me.
