Bonnie and Clyde's Guns on Auction

Dnews-nuggets-278x225Bonnie and Clyde's Guns on Auction: Eighty years after Bonnie and Clyde were ambushed by police officers
and shot to death, some of their weapons and other possessions are going
up for auction in Nashua, N.H. On that fateful day back in 1934, when
Texas Ranger Frank Hamer caught up with the bank-robbing couple, he and
his deputies were told that they could keep whatever they found in the
bullet-riddled car. They took an arsenal of guns and other personal

In the 1970s, Hamer's family sold off many of the guns. But two of
them -- a Colt .45 that Hamer found tucked in Clyde's waistband and a
.38 Detective Special that was taped to Bonnie's thigh -- are going up
for auction this Sunday. Each could go sell for six figures. via WBUR

OH, GAG! The thought of owning weapons that caused so much tragedy turns my stomach!

Yeah, ti's a little creepy but it is also history. Hopefully some museums will pick up the pieces and put them on display for all to see and read about.

Their last car is on display at Whiskey Pete's in Primm, Nevada, open 24/7 and it's free to view. What're we waiting for?

NPR did a spot on this the other morning. I'm half asleep when I listen to Morning Edition, but I do remember the guest saying that these characters are not the folk heroes they are often made out to be.
