a shoot-out without guns?

The police raid on the loyalist bar in Tiger’s Bay garnered the publicity it deserved, what with CS gas being used and reports of gunfire, and the 18 arrests that followed. Those arrests have now turned into charges.. 11 men charged with membership of a proscribed organisation, while 7 people were released with files sent to the PPS.. apart from that the only other reported charges are that 7 of the men arrested were “charged with wearing an item of clothing in such a way as to arose reasonable suspicion that he is a member or supporter of a proscribed organisation”.. not quite the “items of use to terrorism” that initial reports may have suggested were present.
