bonnie and clyde’s guns are finally up for sale. for the life of me, i can’t find out how such personal property as bonnie’s make up bag has made it to an auction, and who is actually pocketing the funds off of the death of the notorious gangsters. that being said, parker’s colt detective special .38 revolver and clyde barrow’s 1911 army colt .45 pistol, are the two that will steal the show. both of which have estimated $150,000 to $300,000 (£93,000 to £185,000) price tags.
retired history professor ER milner says it is clear why the couple is still so intriguing. “americans and, i think, most people love a lover… and here were these young people in the midst of the worst depression in the history of the world striking a blow for what they thought was right – and loving one another. it was almost a shakespearean tragedy on a dusty road in louisiana.” well that is especially true today of bank robbers since we have lost all our sympathy for any poor old bank. the irony of it all is that the guns will probably be purchased by some banker after all. by dd
