That looks like a 26.5mm flare launcher. That ain't a round for it though.

On the face of it, this is a "stoopid criminal" story that belongs ion the Dumbth thread ...

Employee Says She Robbed Store to Teach Other Employees a Lesson
Lowering the Bar (lawyer blog)

... but one little detail puts in in ed appreciation territory. 8)
...

It’s too bad they weren’t armed with poniards, because that would justify this paragraph noting that New Mexico is one of only three U.S. states (congratulations, Indiana and West Virginia) that specifically mention poniards in their statutes. A poniard, as you of course know, is a straight double-edged stabbing weapon that’s longer than a dagger but shorter than a rapier, the kind of thing you’d expect to see being waved around in Hamlet but not so much in New Mexico. We could debate that definition, but this is exactly why having these enumerated lists is often just a big waste of time. It causes confusion (see, e.g., People v. Castillolopez, 63 Cal. 4th 322 (2016) (concluding that a Swiss Army knife isn’t a “dagger”)) although on the other hand it gives legal-humor writers something to do (see, e.g., “Is an Alligator a ‘Deadly Weapon’?” (Feb. 12, 2016) (concluding that it depends)). This is presumably why even Texas dropped the “poniard” in 2017, streamlining the law and just going with “knife,” defined broadly as “any bladed hand instrument that is capable of inflicting serious bodily injury or death by cutting or stabbing….” One of many potentially deadly weapons, of course.

Being a 32 round capacity is it an assault magazine or something and a felony to own in some states. Do you see why one cannot take the idiots that write legislation like that seriously?
