"The bullets were a variety of ammunition for shotguns and handguns including 12-gauge, .308 caliber, .233 caliber and 9 mm."

Shoot, a fella could have a pretty good weekend in DallasVegas with all that stuff.

If it was simply boxes of ammunition and no firearms or firearms parts then there would have been zero magazines or clips.

Fake news! Shotguns don't use bullets!
 
2022-05-13 5:55:32 PM  
That's silly.  It was investigated and proven that with JFK you only need one bullet.

"the bag she grabbed was slightly heavy and the ammunition took up a lot of the space in her bag."

How many outfits was she carrying in her bag that she never noticed the additional weight of the ammunition.

So you would've preferred "shells" or "cartridges" to describe what she had?

Where should I store my ammo?  I guess I'll just put it in a normal travel suitcase, that makes sense.

.223 green tips come in the box with stripper clips so there might have been some.

I heard there was no casing or shells or bullets or primers.  Only clips

LOL, what bullshiat. Ammo is heavy. There's no way she didn't know it was in there.

This is the airport equivalent of, "I was cleaning my gun and it went off."

Clips and magazines were interchangeable terms until the ammosexuals freaked out and tried to gain some rhetorical advantage about ten years ago. Before that time, you found them and anyone else using them equally. Go watch Vietnam movies, cop shows, anything. It's just the dittyboppers of the world knew the world didn't like grade school kids getting slaughtered so they tried to prove they had secret knowledge.

PIX11 says the woman told officers that ammunition belongs to her son and she accidentally grabbed the wrong bag on her way to the airport.

LOL!  These assholes just never pay attention to where any of their firearm shiat is.  The fact that you could "accidentally" grab a large bag full of ammo in your house and then take it to the airport without a thought, means you probably shouldn't have ammo or guns.

Yeah, movies are where you want to cite technical data.

The deal is people not knowing what they're talking about trying to pass laws. We don't like it when the laws are about women's bodies, alcohol, or drugs. Why is it suddenly acceptable for lawmakers to be ignorant just because it's guns?

And no, they aren't "interchangeable", they are two completely different items.
 
2022-05-13 6:18:35 PM  
If you pack the ammo in a TSA approved suitcase/box and declare it at check-in, it's perfectly legal.

Actually, when people say magazine they're talking about the building where explosives were stored. Nowadays they refer to the box you keep your explosives in. Bullets have a propellant, but they're hardly considered explosive.

And since a can't clip bullets together to be inserted into a firing chamber we should always call them clips.

I think it's up to 11 pounds, which seems odd until you think about the metric system.

I have a few range bags. When I go, I select the guns I'm going to use that day, and pack ammo accordingly. When I return, I clean and return the guns to their safes and put up unused ammo in the ammo closet.

Sounds like her son is a slob who leaves his stuff laying around. Paying his Mom's fine and losing 9 boxes of ammo might get him to think about cleaning up after himself.
