    Are there such laws limiting the amount ammo someone can have at any one time? After reading this i looked and couldnt find anything that limited the amount af anything..


    --------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Keni Garcia told police he intended to use the 30,000 bullets they found in his car and home for target practice.

    That is hard to believe, the prosecutor at Garcia's arraignment said, because if he were to fire a gun for eight hours a day, it would take weeks for him to use all of it.

    Garcia, who allegedly bought thousands of rounds of ammunition and had 10,000 bullets in his car when he was stopped by police Thursday, was ordered held on $500,000 cash bail yesterday.

    huh?

    cyclic rate:
    ak-47=600 rpm
    ar-15=600rpm
    being generous and subtracting 20% for mag changes and target resets we get 480 rpm.
    8 hours times 60 minutes in an hour we get 480. so.....

    8hoursx60min=480
    600rpm/20%=480
    480x480=230,400rds in 8 hours. or.....

    480rph/30,000=62.5min.

    assuming that all the ammo was for one gun, it wasn't, more guns means more people shooting, increasing the rate of fire, and decreasing the rate of fire by twenty percent for mag changes and trigger finger taping, he would of been able to fire over 200,000 rounds in 8 hours. or his 30,00 in just over 1 hour.

    According to the article, he was arrested on suspicion of exporting ammunition and firearms. (although he was charged with "illegal possession of ammo")

    Not saying that his arrest was justified, but if he was exporting without a license, it's illegal.

    Heck--at one round per second that's only 8.3 hrs. I could do that with
    a couple of semi-auto anythings if I had a crew to load the mags.
    Probably have time for a couple of breaks and a siesta.:)

    I'm not saying they are wrong about him exporting it... but he's in Massachusetts! Where can they export anything to? Throw it on a ship? :huh:

    Am I dumb? :p

    Hoookay...Just what we need to have happen. Sure, if he was exporting the guy should be jailed. But if he was just a shooter then this is a bad sign of the times. ****, I've got a bit less then that currently stored.

    The mass. police returned my phone call and said the paper was way off on the report. This guy is not as clean as the paper made him out to be. Not that this means anything this way or that way but this guy has been watched for a while now by the atf.

    So that means he has a 13 round capacity pistol and a rifle with a bayonet lug on it.

    According to the article, he is a "native of the Dominican Republic", also;

    My guess is that they suspected him of exporting to the dominican republic. I mean thank god we live in a country where suspicion does not constitute a crime, but I'm sure they got the idea from the $25k cash, his shipping business, and the ammo and firearms.

    The lesson to be learned here is they gave consent to search his house without a warrant thinking nothing was wrong, mistake, you don't refuse consent because you have nothing to hide, you refuse because they are looking for something to hang you with, and a warrant wont be issued without cause.
