What a waste of time. I would have disposed of that for free.

Time for people to grow up and stop acting paranoid because of Hollywood and the Dem's.

Really Really over a box of ammo.

And nobody was injured, imagine that. What a high risk, dangerous job those free loaders have. They take in donated goods, take what they want, to sell, eat or wear and give what is left over to people that are really in need. Then, and then.......they find AMMO PARTS, run for the doors, call the police, the fire station, the President.

The office was evacuated, traffic was directed around the area, and people at some nearby businesses were asked to stay in place, police said. Part of Richmond was temporarily closed.

The sheriff's bomb squad determined the box had primers from old shotguns, old bullets and shell casings, Muņoz said. The bomb squad removed the ammunition for disposal, and the evacuation was lifted by 11:20 a.m.

No one was injured.




its just too stupid to believe...

Too bad they didn't run a robot in there and blow it up.

they really need to hold people accountable for wasting their time.

Wow, call in the bomb squad? The police should have just laughed at them and then fined them for wasting their time.

...and what are "primers from old shotguns"? Do "old shotguns" use different primers than "new shotguns"?
Yeah, facepalm.

a bit of an over reaction. I wonder what the 911 call transcripts are.

No doubt the brady kampaign will count this as a major crime statistic with a SWAT team response, hostage situation, and bomb squad call out to deal with the explosive ammuntion dump the drug dealers had.

I can't wait for their "press release.

:facepalm:

This is a typical California reaction. The Rulers have succeeded in demonizing anything gun related to the sheep.

Buy a cheap pack of .22s at Walmart and leave it at the side of the road and see how many people freak out.

Lol wow.

Reminds me of a HazMat rep at UPS when she was asking me why the local UPS shipping didn't want to mail my rounds. She said, and I love her for this, "it's just ammunition. Not like it's going to explode at random."

Seems like a normal reaction to people who's only experiance with ammunition is what they see in movies. Too all of us its a overreaction but then again we know more about it.

Leave it in front of my house... If there isn't a freak out right away, just keep leaving 22 there, something is bound to happen :shifty:

Oh and comments disabled on the article? darn. I really wanted to see all the flaming that would surely ensue in this level of idiocy

Yeah, facepalm.

I was thinking the same thing....

I am hoping we aren't getting the whole story here and in reallity someone cleared off grandpas bench into a box and it looked like a jumble of powder primers and shrapnel..... This is the only feasible way I hope it actually happened. If it was actually loaded ammo and looked as such, this state is further gone than I had originally thought.
