    A contractor running cables inside a terminal at John F. Kennedy Airport in New York found a Mac-11 subcompact machine pistol Thursday morning inside a secure closet, The Daily News reported.[​IMG]
    The gun, which is capable of discharging 32-round magazines in less than two seconds, was in a plastic case and officials are determining if the gun is operable, the report said. The gun, which was located inside Terminal One, which handles international flights, could have been there for years.

    Seems like kinda a non-story. Closet in a security area. Possibly was put there as evidence. Forgotten about for years. Are Mac-10s even used by anyone anymore.

    I wouldn't go so far as to call it a non-story, but it's not a huge deal, IMO.

    Reading the article, it was found during a re-wire of a ceiling. If anything, it's collector value would be the real value now...
