Made bail, huh?
I've been digging my way out of jail. Bail was a little to expensive and that permafrost is incredibly tough to dig through, but I had help from the polar bear in the cell beside me. Learned a valuable lesson though.......never through maple syrup at the border patrol. Those sick bast*rds ate all of it I front of my. It was like a never ending nightmare. I was so close to getting Trip his stuff too, so I just need to form a new plan.

Buy a rocket from north Korea. At least you won't have to worry about over shooting!

He'd just have to worry about it making it even remotely near his target.

Here is a question. You know how on some new guns when you buy them they have a shell case included where they fired it. Is that to test the gun or it it to enter into a ballistic database to trace the gun. Is this done with all guns and only some manufactures give you the casing.

Good question. I do know of one case( San Diego) where the gun was not recovered but the bagged brass was, and that is their case.I think it's more of a " see, we shot this"

Some states require a spent cartridge to register the gun. I think Maryland is one state that requires that and possibly the only state. The spent cartridge is sent to the State Police when the gun is sold so that if that gun is used in a crime it can easily be traced to who it was sold to.

I wonder what the stats are on the actual buyer/owner using them in a crime....

Well, probably very small but I would think it's not necessarily to nail the owner but to identify the gun itself. It certainly would encourage anyone to report a stolen firearm. And I think there are cases where the owner might not even be aware the firearm was stolen. I don't know how private sales go in Maryland but that would be a factor, too.

MD has required this since 2001, NY addded the requirement. It is estimated that it costs each state in excess of $1 million per year. Last time I checked, there had been NO cases based on, or aided by the Ballistic Information database.

When the MD crime lab conducted a blind study test, using two different brands of ammo, they were unable to match two cartridges fired by same gun in 70% of the tests.

But it seems to make lawmakers feel good......

And that right there is we (Canadians) had the Long Gun Registry scrapped. After close to 30-40 years after it began the politicians finally realized the two billion dollars that was being spent on a system yearly that didn't aid in helping find criminals or control crime was best used else where.
