Does this mean no key chain fobs or jewelry from spent cartridges?

I suppose it could if you got a cop on a bad day.

in her investigative book, “Emily Gets Her Gun: … But Obama Wants to Take Yours.”

Judging from the title, I’m confident the book is a thoughtful, rational examination of gun laws; that it strives to carefully consider facts in their proper context; that it presents its case objectively and without hyperbole; and that it is in no sense an example of scandal-mongering sensationalist yellow journalism designed to sell fear and anger to an audience already addicted to fear and anger.

Such is the state of advocacy in the US. The anti and pro gun sides use hyperbole like most of us eat. A little too much a little too often. Like being afraid to call gun control by it’s obvious truthful name.

I hear you, but the fact remains that the DC city government was and still is behaving very badly in regards to firearms and multiple rebukes by the courts don’t seem to be stopping them. It is a relevant issue when the city government of our nation’s capital city is behaving lawlessly. I’d rather it was reported in a better medium, but it remains true.

Boy they’d faint at the buckets of brass in my basement (few hundred .45 colt, about a 1000 .38 special, a few hundred various rifle cartridges & will be worse once I start reloading for the two Russian cartridges).

FATTAF, the problem in the end is that both sides live and breath fear, anger and hyperbola. I’m just a hard left socialist who likes to make holes in paper and in dinner. It’s in my interest to find the middle way between the extremes but that’s harder than finding a moderate Republican Representative. So we get idiocies on one extreme like unconstitutional bans and taxes and fantasies like “constitutional carry” on the other. And we’re as likely to find a easy way past this as we are with the abortion issue because similar groups on both sides of both issues see a hard line as a way to money and power in politics.

And so it ‘aint just hyperbole gun owners face is it?

The law is clearly a big F U at gun owners.

The law covering the transport of guns, ammo, and used ammo casings was enacted in 2009 after the Supreme Court overturned the District’s 30-year gun ban in 2008.

RWC, I had presumed that to be the case, just how they are. Still, our side hasn’t exactly been choirs of angels either… And no, I have no serious idea of what to do about it. We try over at The Liberal Gun Club but that’s not for everyone - until there is an advocacy group that steps away from the fear, anger and, yes, money, we will have nothing but the Brady Bunch flinging Poo at the NRA which is flinging the same Poo right back at them. :(

Indigenous Americans Ruled Democratically Long Before the U.S. DidDemocracy: it was older and more widespread than we thought. At the Oconee site, called Cold Springs, artifacts were excavated before the valley became an aquatic playground. Now, new older-than-expected radiocarbon dates for those museum-held finds push back the origin ...
