    Heard on the news this morning in Austin, some id10t was arrested for chasing down some kids that were playing "ding dong ditch" (their name) pointing an ar-15 at them and saying he was going to blow their heads off.... but the charge was for the AP in the mag, in his house, not in the rifle.... When did AP ammo become a crime in Texas?? And since when have they made .223 in AP?? MG

    The news got it wrong.

    Texas prohibits armor piercing ammo

    Armor piercing ammo is defined in 46.01

    He was back at home when the police arrived and questioned him. He lied and said that he pointed his son's air rifle at the boys. When police asked to see the rifle, he fessed up that the rifle was actually a Panther Arms AR15. The rifle was unloaded when police examined it, but the officers looked at a magazine that was loaded with M855. The officer arrested him on the charge of possessing an illegal weapon. The guy also had a warrant for Theft by Check, so I’m not sure why he wasn’t arrested for that instead of the bogus charge for the supposed AP ammo. The AP ammo charge will get dropped, but he’ll likely face charges for pointing the rifle at the kids and of course the existing warrant.

    Rule #1 ... Never talk to the cops, even if you have to take a beating.

    It is "possession of a prohibited weapon".

    I'll bet you he was not charged with that, and the media got it wrong.

    Remember folks, lame street media will have the kid that
    1 - filled squirt gun with nair
    2 - squirted the neighbor kid

    arrested for assault, and for possession of a fully automatic machine gun with an excess of 10,000 rounds stock piled in the basement of the mobile home next to the swamp

    it is not, nor is the ammo.

    I read an article that said the dude pointed the gun at the kids too.

    here are two additional charges;

    1. Disorderly Conduct-Displaying a firearm in a public place in a manner calculated to alarm

    2. deadly conduct- recklessly engaged in conduct that placed another in imminent danger of serious bodily injury (TPC 22.05)

    So is m855 armor piercing ammo, or standard military ball?
    As for chasing kids down the street for a ring and run that is retarded.
