    Mexico has jailed visiting Americans for having ammunition --- even empty cases. A U. S. Marine got lost and, carrying his service rifle, wound up in Mexico, was caught and jailed. Venezuela is living under a dictator, so the news here should not surprise people.

    The problem with Mexico is evidenced by the lost marine; you can evidently wander across a border if you're lost. Another driver missed a turnoff, had to go into Mexico to turn around, but got caught with ammo! You need to be careful down NEAR the border so you don't CROSS the border.

    If you have that problem with accidently finding yourself in Venezuela, there's a problem .... somewhere.... :uhoh:

    I don't know, we are supposed to cut up or turn in inanimate non-energetic plastic shapes in a month or so...

    Further, we were told it was A-OK to own these plastic shapes by the "Authorities", they were not always verboten.

    Considering how easily those who shall not be named have managed to brainwash people to believe/regurgitate/self-police with regard to politcally-correct Marxist dogma, even against our own inherent interests as a people and a nation...

    .... and how the enforcers and true believers of this dogma have managed to take over practically every single media outlet and online discussion forum (ahem)...

    ...
    It's probably just a matter of time before they get your guns too. They'll likely use total economic/financial collapse as the impetus. "Oh, you're hungry? You walked all this way to Relief Camp Charlie, here on the outskirts of Moron City, for food aid? We'll have to check your person and confiscate your weapons first, before we allow you in."

    And just like that, you're forever-more a resident of Moron City. Because there will be no more food or deliveries that will be made out to the hinterlands.

    IIRC he could get arrested in Washington D.C. for just having that, even if they were fired cases. I don't know what NY City would think of it but he'd probably be in trouble there, also. Any place that hates to see citizens with guns has an equal hatred of the ammunition.

    This is done with the proper paperwork and guides oversee the process. However, I have traveled to Mexico many times. I am super paranoid about accidentally having loose rounds in my bags.

    This is exactly the America the Hillary/Kamala/Elizabeth/Chuck/Michael uber/liberal cabal wants.

    Hold dear your 2nd Amendment rights, for THOSE are under attack daily by people who will be happy to tell you how to live your life... and then pass a tax on you to fund a program to do just that.

    Stay vigilant!

    Well, guys, Mexico is coming to us; and bringing along its disdain of personal liberty.

    I agree on that; you hear horror stories about someone using a range bag while traveling and it had a spent .22 shell; however, I was just addressing the aspect of not ever bringing a gun into Mexico (and the other threads saying the same about NY, NJ, etc.)

    I always felt there was more to that marine that accidentally wandered into Mexico it isn’t as easy as you would believe for anyone actually paying attention there is even a turn around right before you enter into Mexico at the Tijuana border

    Just think, it was just 2012, when Venezuela govt. took away all ammo and guns, from the general public. Now, inflation is 1,000,000% and they had to close all the zoos' because people were so hungry, they were eating the zebras, and all the other animals. All in 6 short years. Very sobering, and yet, so many want the same path. Our guns are the last man standing, in this game.

    Yeah. They'll take us down a different path, but similar end result -- everybody poor and gunless.
    You know how it's been said that, "Obama was the best gun salesman."
    Well the social engineers aren't stupid. Far from it. They know what they're doing.
    In our case, it will be the proliferation of firearms combined with a national [economic] crash/crisis, and all the terrible ugliness and horrific images and videos that are sure to come out of it.

    Then they'll say... "See! The public can't be trusted with guns. Guns are a social ill!"
    We'll be held up to the world as the proof of why serfs shouldn't own guns.

    So then we'll be both poor and gunless. Just like Venezuela.

    There's more to these stories than what is first reported.
    There was outcry on the UK gun boards a few years back because a guy was charged for having a few cartridges that weren't on his ticket. When the whole story came out, it turned out the police had been interested in him for a long time, for other reasons. He eventually was jailed for illegal manufacturing of firearms, as well as some unsavoury videos if I remember correctly.

    You can bet the guy in the original story attracted the attention of the police way before they found the cartridges, and the real reason he is "interesting" is yet to be revealed.

    I will drive north bound in a south bound lane to avoid accidentally go to mexico.

    But yes it does happen, was in San Diego riding around with people who lived near there and had to go to Mexico to turn around. Now this was in 2004 or 5 I don't know if much has changed since then, it appears not.

    Or even a spent shell from what I hear. When I go there to visit my daughter, I spend a good amount of time checking the truck for left overs.

    Wouldn't you also run afoul of the law with that in Massachusetts?

    Maybe, but Venezuela is a dictatorship, England is not. The police in a dictatorship act differently. Even if the police were interested in him for something else, that "something else" might be equally as innocuous.
    Or, alternatly, the police might very well have planted those cartridges on him to give them cause to haul him in for that .... "something else."
    And, no I don't know the truth. I am merely pointing out possible alternatives given what Venezuela has devolved into

    When I was living there (for school), a single empty brass casing was illegal to possess unless you had a registered-in-DC (good luck pre-Heller) gun for that caliber.

    I used to be very paranoid about an empty .22lr case getting stuck under the floor mat of my car during a woods shooting session back home in Georgia, then getting uncovered in some sort of traffic stop/search in D.C.

    You have to watch out for that here in the US as well. A woman from PA, who had a valid ice permit, missed the last turn before a bridge heading into NJ and got pulled over. She was honest and stated she had a gun and what happened, and the state of NJ did its best to prosecute like she was a cold blooded killer
