A 19-year-old gun enthusiast has been charged with arms trafficking and has been sentenced to life imprisonment for buying 24 replica firearms from a Taiwanese website. The court has determined that 20 out of the 24 replicas have the capacity to maim. The defense attorney has argued that his client knew nothing of the replicas’ power, which are being legally sold in Taiwan, and that they were bought for recreational purposes. The guns were hidden inside a water dispenser when they were discovered by customs. The gun enthusiast plans to appeal.
