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.

Or under a seat in your car after it spilled out of your overfull brass collection bag from that shoot you went to 6 months ago.
The law? The law is a human institution...

My 44 magnum cigar punch keychain fob is going to get me in real trouble sooner or later. It's a facsimile of a cartridge, so maybe I would get a false arrest.

Admit nothing.  Deny everything. Demand proof.
If we lie to the government, it's a crime. If the government lies to the people, it's called politics.

Washington DC, home of the government for the world's most free nation and where the Constitution does not apply.

I believe they captured that title long ago.

Can we get a bunch of heavy equipment and detach DC from the rest of America?
