DC: Unregistered Ammo Arrest

Recommended Posts

"Mark Witaschek, a successful financial adviser with no criminal record, is facing two years in prison for possession of unregistered ammunition after D.C. police raided his house looking for guns," reports The Washington Times. "Mr. Witaschek has never had a firearm in the city, but he is being prosecuted to the full extent of the law. The trial starts on Nov. 4." The ammo in question was one .270 casing, one live shotgun shell, and a box of Knight bullets for reloading.

That ought to teach him huh?

Sadly enough over zealous and vengeful police use crappy laws like this as an excuse. They were obviously trying to escalate this to get some violence out of him. They do the same sort of BS every day.

Wich is worse? Stupid laws or violent police looking for a fight?

We seem to have a lot of both lately.

If the search had been conducted ethically and the letter of the law upheld there would have been no news. It is a shame that we have allowed our overlords such control over our personal lives.

Seems it all started with the bogus domestic order and a pissed off ex wife. That tired old excuse has hurt a lot of guys. Once a domestic order OF ANY KIND is issued you can kiss your gun rights goodbye. The law was intended to protect people from abuse but is regularly abused. So the cops in this case are using two crappy laws as licence to hassle a seemingly innocent man.

Too bad it does not make the news when common people get treated like this. If the truth was known there have been LOTS of people successfully railroaded like this.

Just another law past by our best and brightest to keep us safe from violent criminals. Remember they know more than we do, they need to confiscate all weapons from civilians first, than they will go after the criminals and lock them up so we all feel safe. We may not know the whole story, he could be one of those passive aggressive types ready to go postal on his wife, she was just doing what she thought would preserve her life longer. :) And another problem is violent television...but that's another story. Have a great and safe day today....and keep your weapons at home.

The real story is about his wife, she is an independent investigative journalist. Just so happens that the story she was working on had leaked info from some high up sources within the White House. While the swat team arrested him and confiscated all of his supposed arsenal, they somehow took all the documents and notes she was using on her new investigation.......

At least the obummers are not as bad as the Clinton's.... They just made people disappear or die suddenly. I really wonder what she had uncovered?
