A washed-up actor who once starred in the cinematic extravaganza “Borat” was busted by a gun store owner in Los Angeles after entering the gun shop under false pretenses.
“He comes in, off the bat you can see in the video I’m looking like, this guy does not look like a Hungarian immigrant, tight ass leather pants, a beard, it just didn’t fit,” Warrior One Guns & Ammo owner Norris Sweidan told the local Fox News station in Los Angeles. “The moment his words came out of his mouth I was like this guy is full of s***.”
Cohen and his camera crew told Sweidan that Cohen was a Hungarian immigrant trying to purchase a gun for a documentary. According to Sweidan, Cohen’s lousy fake accent gave him away as a fraud. The event took place in February.
Sweidan believes that Cohen actually wanted to use footage for a segment in his Showtime pilot program called “Who is America?” The first episode of the show recently aired, depicting gun advocates promoting arming children, which of course cast them in a negative light. Cohen wore an Israeli disguise in that segment.
“Once I knew it was Borat, we already know his game and his bull****, so we knew he’s here to make a mockery, and of what? Gun owners? The gun business, gun shops,” Sweidan said.
When Cohen was made, he quickly exited the store, leaving his crew behind.
“We’re talking to the people they don’t wanna give us an answer, we basically told them to get the f*** out, you guys are all full of s***, have a great day, get out,” Sweidan said.
Sweidan’s store is in the process of filming a show called “Down the Barrel,” and he believes Cohen targeted him for that reason.
150 Firearms Stolen From Albuquerque Gun Store by “Sophisticated” Thieves
The thieves were “sophisticated.”
150 pistols and rifles were stolen from an Albuquerque gun store earlier this week, in what authorities are calling one of the biggest thefts of firearms in the southwestern United States in recent history.
The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms state that a group of thieves made off with more than 115 handguns and 35 rifles during the heist, which occurred early on Monday morning. Authorities are claiming the thieves, who worked in a group, acted with a “level of sophistication,” cutting the power to JCT Firearms and disabling the building’s security system before getting inside and stealing the guns. The thieves also disabled the gun store’s surveillance system.
Authorities have entered the serial numbers of all the stolen firearms into a national database, but are saying it ranges from possible to likely that the guns will be taken to Mexico. “That’s a tremendous amount of firepower in the hands of criminals,” said Tom Mangas, an ATF spokesman. “This is a priority for us.”
Albuquerque police are saying there’s no indication that the massive theft is linked to the nationwide race riots that have surfaced in the city, but the timing is conspicuous. More than two million Americans have become legal gun owners in the past two months, and the theft appears to indicate that criminals are seeking to arm themselves as well.
The ATF is offering a $10,000 reward to information leading to criminal charges in the burglary, a sum that is being matched by the National Shooting Sports Foundation.
In a national moment where racial tensions are boiling, the theft of the firearms by criminals poses a serious danger to the Albuquerque community, and the American public broadly.
