When Money is No Object

MEXICO CITY — Mexican soldiers have seized an arsenal of gold-plated, diamond-encrusted weapons believed to belong to the Valencia gang, allies of the powerful Sinaloa drug cartel, prosecutors said Monday.

Photos of the weapons show that most of the 31 pistols found in a raid on a home in western Mexico had gold or silver-plated grips or glittered with diamonds — apparently flamboyant examples of the sort of gaudily customized weapons favored by some drug gangsters.

Three of the assault rifles are almost entirely gold-plated.

Wouldn't some rap singers in the States like these things? Wouldn't anyone with enough money and this particular kind of taste go in for something like this?

What's your opinion? If money were no object, what would you do?

  1. Good god those are some ugly ass guns.

  2. Clearly we need to ban bling. It would be about as effective as many of the other useless gun control laws that we have.
