How about this one? Little girl dies in freak accident, British MP calls for a ban on inflatable slides and bouncy castles:

Let's all just wear crash helmets and clothes made of bubble wrap wherever we go.

I resemble that remark. We also flipped our kilts at them.

That stunt your AG pulled recently is bullshit.....who knew the AG could rewrite legislation.....

For others not familiar with the special level or retardedness that mass has......if you dont have a mass firearms license and you're found in the possession of something as simple as a component of a single piece of ammunition (brass, projectile/etc) you are guilty of a FELONY
DC has that special level of retardedness. Full retard in fact. A buddy of mine was in DC for a meeting at a Federal building. He went through security screening and was asked if the bag was his and if they can inspect it further. He said no problem. The guards pull out a loaded 9mm mag for one of his hand guns. He was shocked and forgot to pull it out of his bag from being at the range the day before. He figured no big deal as he didn't have any gun that mag could have been loaded into with him. The guard asked for him to step aside and the ahole calls DC Metro PD. DC Metro PD arrives and arrests my buddy. The charge....possession of UNREGISTERED ammo. How the hell do you register ammo?

So my buddy got to spend the night in jail. Mind you he's never been arrested or had any run ins with law enforcement. To add to the nightmare, the prosecutor pushes forward to have a trial. Again, my buddy has no record what so ever yet the prosecutor pushes for a full hearing. Meanwhile, the Federal government officials my buddy was supposed to meet have written letters to DC requesting the charges to be dropped vouching for his character. Nope. Full speed ahead to a court trial. I forgot how much money my buddy spends about it was around $12-20k in attorney's fees and when the hearing finally happens, the judge drops the charges.

I told my buddy he should contact the NRA about this and see if the NRA on his behalf would turn around and sue DC. But he just wanted this whole mess to go away.

ETA: The charge of having unregistered ammo is a felony charge.

WTF! See they know that the charges won't stick but they want to be a pain in the balls and be assholes so that court and lawyer fees get so outrageous that you voluntarily waive your 2nd ammendement rights. They can't drop an amendement so they try to strangle the citizens. I def agree with you ur buddy should contact the NRA and any other organizations to bite back at them. So he has a MD gun license and was "caught" with ammo? Or another state lic.? I mean what if it's someone that doesn't have 15k to blow? What's the option just go to prison for a couple years, lose your job, not get another job once you get out and just live the rest of your life in a hole all because some dipshit had a hard on for him

Exactly. I also was WTF?! This thing dragged on for about a year if I recall correctly before it finally got to trial. The sad part of it is if the prosecutor looked at the whole picture of my buddy, he would see the guy has a boring history. No run ins with the law except this time. Was a former Fed employee and held a security clearance. Not someone you would say is a habitual offender or someone that purposely violated this stupid law in the first place. Even though the charges were dropped, the long lasting parting gift from DC with all of this, like Herpes, is he now has to always report this stupid situation in every security clearance form he has to fill out. And of course there's going to be repeated questions by the various background investigators asking about this. So it really won't go away.

I may ask him again about reconsidering his decision not to go after DC for this. And stupid crap like this is the reason why DC should never deserve state hood along with all the other rank corruption that the residents of DC just turn a blind eye on. This is besides the point of DC has always been set up as a Federal district and not intended to have state hood on its own. If these baffoons want this, then the land should be returned back to Maryland and Virginia. I'll stop here as this is getting too political.

DC is retarded for many reasons... way before even this story

One drive through the city and surrounding areas shows the level of corruption there... some of the highest taxes in the nation, roads that are falling apart, police on every corner wanting to catch people for going 1 mph over, tolls that are sky high, traffic... no seriously, triple fuck that area. ( i lived there)

I'm with you on this. They don't need cops on every corner to impose the DC tax on you. They'll just let their over zealous use of speed and red light cameras do the job for them. And then there's the parking nazis they have and the F'd up signage which makes it unclear if and when you can park in a spot. Or the stupid rule that if a parking meter is broken, you're not allowed to park there as DC can't collect their money.

And not to mention instances like the Department of Education which "lost" millions of dollars and no one to this day has been held criminally liable. And when they actually got someone to head up the messed up Department of Ed to clean up the mess, they ended up driving her out.

Hmm. I decline to admit of a collection in case HER decides to confiscate Aussie style.
Btw I live in va but I have a sister that lives in DC. It's a pita because I have to make sure there is no ammo or guns whenever I head there.
I would pay $$$ for a 50 state chp.
