    Gang members toting high-powered weapons on Columbia's streets

    Angie Goff on powerful weapons in the hands of gang members

    (Lexington) July 19, 2006 - Gang violence in the Midlands has some people on edge.

    On Saturday, 19-year-old Denise Boykin was shot and killed at the Barnyard Flea Market in Lexington County. Authorities think gunmen were trying to target the woman's boyfriend. Six people have been arrested. A semi-automatic weapon was used in the shooting.

    A SLED agent shows us the power of an AK-47, capable of shooting nine bullets at one time going 2,400 feet per second. It's the type of gun used in combat.

    But one of them was found on the streets of Columbia. It's one of many high-powered weapons that make up SLED's collection of guns stripped from criminals and gang members.

    While semi-automatic pistols continue to be the standard weapon of gangs, officers say there's been a rise in the use of what you could call "bigger and badder" firearms.

    One of the reasons is that the guns are easy to get. Cpt. Stan Smith says, "I've worked a number of cases recently where guns were lawfully purchased by the individuals who used them in the crime."

    In South Carolina if you're over 21, you can buy an AK-47 model at a gun shop for as little as $130.

    Officers say juveniles get adults to buy the guns, or they steal them.

    That is frightening to officials like Lt. Ricky Ezzell, "These rounds have the capability of going through our body armor, so it's pretty scary."

    Lt. Ezzell shoots an AR15. It's the civilian version of the military's M-16. The bullets left behind are similar to what's been found in gang warfare in Richland County.

    Lt. Ezzell talks about some of the weapons they've found, "On some of the rounds we've gotten off them you could line three to four people in a row and if you shoot the first one it will go through all of them."

    And even someone like WIS' Angie Goff, who is inexperienced at the shooting range, can hit a target 20 feet away with the weapon.

    Gangs are using guns more than ever. Smith says weekly disputes are ending with gunfire. Cpt. Smith is concerned it will get worse, "Until some of the, perhaps, legislation is changed regarding how guns are obtained, we're going to see probably increase in weapons and firearms used in these incidents."

    But Smith admits, no matter what the law, gangs who want guns will find a way to get them.

    with 7.62x39? Steel core stuff could take out 2 people I guess I dont think it would have enough energy to go through a 3rd person, larger caliber stuff yes its possible.

    7.62x39 could easily take out 3 people.

    Bullet hits first person & strikes bone. Bullet follows bone from shoulder (for example) and follows bone down to feet. Comes out at feet, still going same speed it left the gun. Enters foot of second person, strikes bone, follows bone until it comes out of shoulder of second person. Bullet has lost a slight amount of power. Bullet enters shoulder of third person, shatters every bone in body and stops there.


    I'm certain it wouldn't be hard to find a cop to say it could happen :mamoru:

    Same thing. They think I'm scary and weird for wanting any ak-style anything. Of course, they have semi-auto remmy 12gs, but they don't look scary at all, so no one cares.

    I wonder if they would flip out if I wanted AR's instead of AKs.

    i stay in clemson, and i like how they claim you have to be 21 to buy an ak. and as far as that price, the local pawn shop had a pos sks they were trying to sell for 200. Nowhere in hell to find a 130 dollar ak around here

    I can't believe that they admitted that in the article. That comment doesn't make up for the rest of those retarded statements, though. Why don't they stop with the generalizations and start giving specific numbers?

    You can get a parts kit for $100, a receiver flat for $15 and the rivets for less than $10. If you assemble it like that it won't be legal but if you're using it in crime, anyway, then who gives a shit?
