    Restricted ammunition components

    Shopping some reloading items, stopped at some hornady rifle bullets. I came across some restrictions,
    ------------------
    Important notice

    Notice--Ammunition Components.
    Ammunition components are restricted from sale to Massachusetts.
    We cannot ship hollow point components to New Jersey.
    The sale of this item is restricted in Washington DC.
    ‐-----------------
    Never knew components were restricted.

    The HP stuff in NJ idiotic and as expected even NJ cops don’t know the law. It’s so bad the NJSP had to put a giant note on their websites.

    It’s legal to possess JHP ammunition, it’s sold in stores. It’s legal to transport it from/to range/home/store.

    It’s only illegal to carry for non LEO.

    That’s it.

    I guess online retailers would rather just not get involved to begin with.
    ..It was you to me who taught
    In Jersey anythings' legal, as long as you don't get caught.

    Bullets = fishing weights. Of course I imagine some of the blue states prohibit lead fishing weights anyway.

    Some retailers, distributors and/or manufacturers probably just decide that ANY risk of legal hassles in a blue state with 3 customers is not worth it. I have represented 2A-related clients in regulatory queries. Issues that should be trivial can rack up six figure legal bills (not from me) and/or regulatory fines that are cheaper than going on a 5-year lawsuit and appeal odyssey.

    The only thing that really surprises me is reloading components aren't also restricted in NY and CA.
    It's hard to be a ACLU hating, philosophically Libertarian, socially liberal, fiscally conservative, scientifically grounded, agnostic, porn admiring gun owner who believes in self determination.

    Chuck, we miss ya man.

    As I remember having a spent shell casings in your possession in Massachusetts with out a license to carry is a felony.

    I always wondered in those bullet key chains or other display items made from real components could land you in jail there?

    Grew up there and left as soon as I was old enough to figure out how effed up it was there.
