LA Gangs using lasers

According to an AP story on, the Fresno police department is cracking down on Gangs with weapons.

If the gangs are carrying around these weapons, the police had better call for backup:

Perhaps the Police should start carrying around light sabers. They’re not quite as clumsy as blasters, you know.

(If you’re not quite as big of a Star Wars fan, then maybe you won’t recognize the gun. But that’s an E-11 blaster rifle, from the movies. The chosen weapon of Imperial stormtroppers, ironically enough.

The fictional gun is based on a real gun, the Sterling LA23 submachine gun. You can view them side-by-side here.

It looks like Robb Allen’s going to need to add an additional category to his Journalist’s Guide to Firearm Identification.)
