Don't Forget To Register Your Ammo.....Wait...What?

When more than 30 police officers in full tactical gear descended upon the house of a successful Washington, D.C., businessman with no criminal record last summer, they were looking for “firearms and ammunition … gun cleaning equipment, holsters, bullet holders and ammunition receipts,” 


What did they find?


  • “One live round of 12-gauge shotgun ammunition” — actually an inoperable shell that misfired during a hunt years earlier that Witaschek kept as a souvenir.
  • “One handgun holster” — perfectly legal.
  • “One expended round of .270 caliber ammunition” — a spent brass casing.
  • “One box of Knight bullets for reloading,” according to police notation on the warrant. Except, Miller reveals, they aren’t for reloading — they’re for antique-replica, single-shot, muzzle-loading rifles.

I want to hear what their probable cause was? Was this guy a Repub? A tea Party member, or just a white guy?

Scary stuff!

We need a common sense flashmob in DC for some housecleaning.

There are reports that his ex-wife called the gestapo.

Hell hath no fury.

And that frigg'n gestapo was ready and more than willing. Living in America is getting scarier and scarier.
