Man on Trial for Shotgun Shell Possession in DC Found Guilty of Possessing Inert ‘Bullets’ Instead

According to The Washington Times, Judge Robert Morin ruled on the muzzleloader bullets when the prosecution team could not figure out how to open the shotgun shell to see if there “was powder inside.” Morin shook the shell and listened to it and “said he could not hear any gunpowder.”

Concerning the muzzleloader bullets, Morin said, “I am persuaded these are bullets. They look like bullets. They are hollow-point. They are not musket balls.”

Morin “sentenced Mr. Witaschek to time served, a $50 fine, and required him to enroll with the Metropolitan Police Department’s firearm offenders’ registry within 48 hours.”

Say, Heller and McDonald and those idiotic Scalia dicta are doing a great job of protecting the RKBA guaranteed in very plain language by the Second Amendment, aren’t they?

About Bill Quick

I am a small-l libertarian. My primary concern is to increase individual liberty as much as possible in the face of statist efforts to restrict it from both the right and the left. If I had to sum up my beliefs as concisely as possible, I would say, "Stay out of my wallet and my bedroom," "your liberty stops at my nose," and "don't tread on me." I will believe that things are taking a turn for the better in America when married gays are able to, and do, maintain large arsenals of automatic weapons, and tax collectors are, and do, not.
