I wonder why they are waving the "terrorist" flag on this? Maybe the ethnicity of the people arrested?
If a firearm was found, it's more likely crime / drug related than terrorism, but hey, that doesn't make for a good story.
As for offensive weapons, a lump of 4x2 and a potato peeler will likely get you arrested for carrying offensive weapons these days!
What I don't get, is that if the car was seized for the driver having no insurance, which is typical these days, then why would they then feel the
need to later search it and find "hidden" weapons? Usually it'll just get towed to a holding area and, if not claimed within a specific time, it'll be
off to the crusher. They would even allow the occupants to remove anything in the car they wanted before it was seized.
