This bizarre case has drawn national attention because an upstanding citizen was tried and convicted of possessing unregistered ammunition for muzzleloader bullets, which are simply pieces of lead and copper.

So just how much further will this be pushed by the proto-fascists?  For example, someone going fishing will generally have lead weights in his tackle box and pennies containing copper (though not that much anymore) in his pocket; should be be arrested because those two items could be readily converted into muzzleloader bullets?

Sorry, but I remember Mr. Witashek on FOX or some other cable show, explaining how he was going to trial because the law was illegal, the facts were bogus, etc. And he was correct.

BUT, to make the point, Mr. Witashek should have refused to pay the fine, refused to sign the registry, and forced the judge to send him to jail for the five days, or whatever. In the alternative, he should have asked for a stay of sentence pending appeal. He has now played ball with the gungrabbers. A reversal of his coinviction won't change that.

As far as they can go, until they are stopped.
You ain't seen nuthin' yet....

Aside:
Why didn't Mr. Witashek simply "get outta town" after his arrest?
To a gun-friendly state such as Montana or Wyoming?
Would the governors of such states sign an extradition order for a "crime" as bogus as this?

that would be the worst thing he could have done.  generally speaking, a state would be obliged to extradite him:  Constitution, Article IV, Section 2, Clause 2:

Quote
    A person charged in any state with treason, felony, or other crime, who shall flee from justice, and be found in another state, shall on demand of the executive authority of the state from which he fled, be delivered up, to be removed to the state having jurisdiction of the crime.
