  1. Not a very good idea of releasing the men if they were supposedly using firearms to frighten the public, unless they were not involved.

  2. The legal definition of firearm is really quite loose and covers a huge range of “weapons” , its how the authorities are able to conjure up so many firearm offences. The general public generally imagines it refers to “dirty harry” style handguns.
