We’ve done a couple of posts on the Twitter account @TPSGunsSeized, the official Toronto Police account for all guns seized, updated weekly. We’ve checked it out to see if it’s actually a parody account, but they do have on display some firearms that were manufactured this century. Here are a couple of favorites:

Is that or is that not an assault style weapon? It sure looks like an assault style military weapon. Probably from Nelson's time when his Navy was assaulting Napoleon's Navy. Frightening to see this in the wrong hands.

I really hope Biden isn't going to take away my flintlock.
It was converted to a percussion caps, so I might be in trouble.
