D.C. cops under orders to arrest tourists with empty bullet casings

LINK

quote:

Washington police are operating under orders to arrest tourists and other non-residents traveling with spent bullet or shotgun casings, a crime that carries a $1,000 fine, a year in jail and a criminal record, according to a new book about the city's confusing gun laws.

"Empty shell casings are considered ammunition in Washington, D.C., so they are illegal to possess unless you are a resident and have a gun registration certificate," pens Emily Miller in her investigative book, "Emily Gets Her Gun: ... But Obama Wants to Take Yours."

Under the law, live or empty brass and plastic casings must be carried in a special container and unavailable to drivers. Having one, for example, in a cup holder or ash tray is illegal.

She told Secrets that the police are "under orders to arrest tourists or other legal gun owners from out of state who wouldn't think to empty brass and plastic from their cars or pockets."

Car, backpack, etc. The car is the most likely place...

The bed of a pickup was my first thought.

Sounds like they don't want anyone in or around DC who isn't in agreement with their views.

I know that's how Pyongyang operates (only the most loyal to Kim and the party can live there). Would anyone put it past Dear Leader?

so what they are saying is to just throw that shite on the ground in stead of putting it in your car and taking it to a trash can for disposal. I'm down.

I have one of the bullet casings from the gun salute at my brother's funeral. He died for this country, yet I can't carry around this casing that I had engraved with his name? Interesting.

I probably have a few empty shotgun shells in the bed of my truck or something. We like to pick up our empties off of the ground because they are litter, not ammunition.

Before you know it a picture of a gun will be outlawed in DC.

Are they really that retarded to constitute an empty shell casing as ammunition

Hell even live ammunition can't do shite without a gun of the correct chamber...

I know that Nazi Party membership was required to live in the town of Berchtesgaden. Hitler had The Eagle's Nest there, and all the top Nazi leadership had homes there as well.

People who don't like to litter at the shooting range.

Maybe they need more paperweights?

utterly ridiculous.

You can do more damage to someone with a sharp pencil than an empty brass case.

re: D.C. cops under orders to arrest tourists with empty bullet casings
got to be a lawsuit somehow if you get arrested for an object that is nothing more than just an object that takes up space
