    Identical Triplets Jailed for Guns Conviction Used Similar DNA to Confuse Investigators

    "In a case that would have puzzled Sherlock Holmes himself, brothers Reiss, Ralston and Ricky Gabriel, all 28, were jailed for handling illegal guns at Blackfriars Crown Court, Friday, and are now starting 14-year sentences for the crime.

    “This case should send a clear message to anyone considering possessing or attempting to obtain a firearm that we will identify you and bring you before the courts,” said Temporary Detective Chief Inspector Driss Hayoukane from the Metropolitan Police’s Specialist Crime Command.

    The UK and Scotland are quite famous for their sport shooting. They have clay pigeons and regular game as well.

    My son and I used to belong to a clay pigeon shooting team. We won a couple of trophies. Not because of me, I assure you.

    Yep, you have to have a gun license but certainly not sold to the general public
