The problem is that there is no downside to the tyrants.

Exactly correct. There is no downside for violating their oath of office. This is because the MSM not only snickers at the *idea* of an oath being a serious thing, but they actually *encourage* violation of the oath.

Those that violate their oath are said to be *realists*, *statesmen*, to have *grown* in office.

The power of the MSM has become a frightful thing, and has been at least since they brought down McCarthy.

you're a cool dude......I live in the west now....I like it...I've been here over 35 yrs...but its different than east or the midwest....

first...its the GREEN.....trees, lawns, bushes...all green....the west is primarily arid or semi arid except along the coast....I do miss the greenery...

and the autumns...there's something about the smell of fall leaves and the cool air.....

and I miss the thunder storms...we get them but not routinely....

I wonder by what authority they do this? Empty shotshells or cartridge casing are NOT ammunition. And to the extent they were, they would be protected by the 2nd Amendment.

Hollowpoint? BANNED in New Jersey. Except for the “only ones”, of course.

I am beginning to think that the Dims want color controlled gun control. Cities with high black crime rates, the city councils scream for gun control. Cities with lower crime rates ..ah, due to lower black resident percentages, well they don’t seem to be so freaked out about ammo or guns.

That sounds like an excellent idea. Drive them nuts by mixing in dented or spit casings of other calibers that can’t be reloaded!

Wondering what the end result of getting caught with a brass solid, machined to look like round would be.

What about a picture of a spent casing or shell?

I’d hate to see what they’d do to me over my 35mm shell casing.

Is this really an issue in DC, tourists picking up all the spent casings lying around?

You can buy silver bullion from Northwest Territorial Mint in the following calibers:

9mm-.625 oz
45 ACP- 1oz
7.62 NATO- 2oz
50 BMG- 10 oz
20 mm- 25 oz

NWTM has a mixed reputation, but these are cool.

So reloading is illegal in DC????

This should be struck down immediately.

Which is why we need to bring back tarring & feathering, and possibly dueling.

Illegal actions aren't much of a threat. I've thought about what possible types of actions could be taken and other than direct 2nd amendment action which unless widespread wouldn't be an effective deterrent, there really isn't anything that comes to mind, and direct 2nd amend action while it makes a nice thought, isn't practical and the odds of getting away with it especially if done repeatedly are pretty low. Plus it takes a special sort of person to do domething like that, and the vast majority of pro-freedom types are not like that as can be seen by the fact that outspoken anti-gunners never seem to end up in shallow graves in NJ. To be effective it has to be a real and pervasive threat. Addresses can be discovered and published, but since most of these are public records anyway that isn't much of a consequence.

Tell that to the DC JBTs.
