Cops discovered an M-4 rifle and two Sig Sauer M11 9-mm pistols concealed in the bag — which were among 16 weapons looted from the Lincoln Stoddard Center armory in Worcester, MA, according to CBS Boston. The weapons weren’t even reported stolen until Nov. 16, five days after the discovery in the Bronx, an NYPD spokeswoman said.
It remained unclear what happened to the 13 other weapons Sunday afternoon.
military infantry rifles are not fully auto since the eighties. the a2 had single shot and three round burst mode. the A1 had fully auto but was phased out. fully auto is useless for an infantry man's standard issue rifle. the automatic fire support role is now handled by crew served weapons such as the obsolete m60 and it's replacement the Squad Automatic Weapon (SAW.)

"What makes them military? Is it because they're black and have handles? Hurr durr...2nd amendment...hurr durr"
Seriously though, sounds like plain ol' theft of government property. I'd imagine if ISIS was going to break into a military armory they'd at least take more than a couple of M4's and pistol's. I mean...this is America...how hard is it to get a pistol in this country?
Very easy to get pistols but full auto combat rifles, not so easy.
Somebody has possession of 6 full auto rifles now.
Employed intelligently in a terrorist attack they could easily approach a similar number of victims to the Paris attacks.
NO suicide vests needed.
Might even get away to shoot another day.
This is very troubling as it does speak of inside help, something our government does far too often with the wrong people.
