SB420 Hearing today @ 1pm (3/27)

Synopsis: Making it a misdemeanor to possess or use specified firearm ammunition during and in relation to the commission of a crime; and establishing penalties. Sponsored by Frosh and the other usual suspects. Apparently had it's 3rd reading on 3/20, but I haven't heard anything about it until just now while reading today's schedule.

Can anyone shed some light on any potential negative implications (assuming they exist) for your average law-abiding citizen?

it bans shotgun shells because they contain plastic

it bans steel bird shot because they aren't lead

it bans powdercoated cast lead bullets


it makes crime double illegal with an add on charge that will get dropped or nolle prosse'd

This is the bill some retard introduced banning "Teflon coated armor piercing cop-killer" bullets. The only thing I can see is it may ban possession of steel core ammo.

Only while possessing or using during a related crime, i.e. having some in your pocket while robbing the neighborhood liquor store.

I don't interpret it as restricted ammo being banned for lawful purposes.

Correct me if I'm wrong, but the law would only apply if you are in possession of the specified ammo during AND in relation to the commission of a crime. The way I read, it seems to only apply to those already committing a crime; but wouldn't this also be an add-on penalty IF SB281 goes through and IF you were to decide on non-compliance with the required registration?

Reads that way to me. Piling on effect. "Crime" is a mighty big net, especially in light of SB281.

What crime? Shooting ducks after hours is an offense. Is this enough of a crime?
I am sorry, but I can't recall if this is cross filed in the house.

If I'm not mistaken, the original black talons were coated with molybdenum disulfide...not Teflon or plastic. Just an observation...

i hear one of the favorite crimes of the dnr is to charge hunters that lean a loaded gun against a car or truck with having a loaded firearm in a vehicle.

if that loaded firearm is a 12 gauge with a plastic shell... bam, extra charge.

I thought that email from omalley said he wasn't going after hunters?
