Battle of Tours in 732 stopped the major influx of Islamic armies and it is said that if that had not occurred we in Europe and the West would be speaking Arabic today. Old saying that "in 732 at the Battle of Tours, Charles Martell defeated the Moors..."
But these weapons might indeed today be for the Basques...a conflict going back nearly as long. In 778 the Basques at the Battle of Roncevaux Pass attacked Charlemagne's (grandson of Charles Martell) army lead by the legendary Roland and his equally qualified fellow paladin-Oliver.

Hence the saying "a Roland for an Oliver" meaning:

An exchange, especially in battle, in which that which is given is equal in measure and might to that which is received. Named for the two legendary medieval knights Roland and Oliver, who fought for the emperor Charlemagne. Their feats and powers were so equally matched that they were considered to be equal measures of military prowess.

Obscure, I know, but idioms are often rooted in very interesting history! That often comes back around.

There's some major snitching or under cover police work going on in that crime organization.

I heard it was actually a company that sold demilled firearms. Unfortunately they were demilled to the old specs and in order to convert them to the new specs it would cost way more than the firearms were worth. Basically demill again send to gov't proof house then pay a tax. It is amazing the demills you find in europe. I was in Normandy for a D-Day anniversary and they were everywhere.

I think these caches were the terrorist/separatist group ETA's caches that they had used over the last few decades and they were handed over as part of their agreement to lay down arms.

Most likely. There is one side, another side, and the truth somewhere in the middle.
