They’ve been called the “most famous Thompson submachine guns in the world” — and are eternally linked to a violent part of Chicago’s history. The St. Valentine’s Day Massacre, supposedly orchestrated by Al Capone against a rival crew in a garage at 2122 N. Clark St., left seven men dead and made news around the world.

The guns are now owned by the Sheriff’s Office of Berrien County in Michigan, where they are used to educate the public. Sometimes they go on tour, and they’re fired every now and then.
