#1 Wait! This can't be right.

I'm pretty sure it's illegal to own automatic weapons in Sweden, so it couldn't possibly have happened....

#2 I wonder if this was the Volvo the bad guys pulled up in. A friend used to refer to this model as the "King Gustav hit car".

#3 One of them was armed with a Kalashnikov automatic rifle,

Oh the guns are there, all right. They'll come out of the woodwork when the time is right.

#4 Danish police accidentially stopped a car half an year ago on the way to swedish border, packed with weapons from former Yugoslavia. EU has practically no control inside the countries and weak control with outside countries. Situation will become more interesting soon.

#8 "They had a guardian angel," said Mats Attin at Malmö police. "It is amazing that there aren't ten people lying dead in there," he said.

No guardian angel needed. Most wannabe terrorist assholes fire from the hip and have no clue about muzzle rise. It always cracks me up in movies when the bad guy firing the automatic weapon sprays the ground around the good guy's feet. That never happens in real life. If you miss with an automatic weapon, you miss high.

#9 ...Ya know, I drive an '89 Volvo 780 Bertone - and a smart-alec friend of mine said it looked like something 'a made guy from Stockholm' would drive.
