Police raid Heckler & Koch in bribery probe

Bribing the Mexican government:

Police have raided the headquarters of German gun maker Heckler & Koch as part of an investigation into illegal gun sales to the Mexican government.

It’s like the perfect storm of internet gun fodder: guns, Mexico, because you suck and we hate you.

    Guess H+K forgot to cut a deal with the ATF first, huh?

    Only a matter of time before we find out this is also due to the NRA and the lack of gun control in the US.

  3. Crotalus Says:

    I gotta say, that’s a lotta gall! Going ahead with their agenda against makers and dealers, even though we, the people, are onto them? Wow. Just…wow!

    That, ladies and gentlemen, shows the utter contempt our government has for us.

    Damn them all!

    So the German police rushed into H&K with their H&K’s drawn?

    You can’t do business in the third world without bribes.

    Is it a bribe if a dozen “free test sample” firearms are sent before the order is made, for testing purposes, and then are left in the care of the government doing the ordering?

    Is it a bribe if shipping is free, or better yet refunded after delivery as a check to the ordering official?

    Is it a bribe if you have to pay a fee up front to obtain the necessary forms to fill out, in order to become an accredited dealer to a government?

    Is it a bribe if you have to pay money to the customs officials to expedite your product out of customs and delivered to the government party that ordered it?

    The possibilities are endless. And yes, most all the above are bribes. This is likely a case of a politically incorrect company being prosecuted by someone who got into a position from which they could damage the company. Because they suck and we hate you.

    Is it a bribe if HK has to dole out cash and goodies to the various German guilds & unions to keep them from shutting down their production?

    I wonder how many HundK’s are being used by the cartels?

    HK is one of those companies I don’t care for. Like HS-Precision they are in essence anti-gun gun makers and there end would not be very detrimental to the overall scene. In fact it could be somewhat beneficial. They only sell in the civilian market because they cannot survive by government contracts alone. Try as they might.

    It’s always funny because most of the fans that come to HK’s defense when it comes to just about everything they do are airsoft fanboys. Which is made even funnier when I tell them HK sued every airsoft maker in the world for copying their designs.

    Yes, but thats a /legal/ bribe. Its always legal to pay off unions.

    Gee, now if only we could get the same response for the ATF. I guess selling guns to the Mexican government is somehow worse than selling guns to the Mexican cartels.
