    Wow, two pistols some ammo and a few pounds of pot... that's major. :lol: (http://www.7newsbelize.com/sstory.php?nid=18144)

    I heard a report on the radio this morning about a new tunnel they just found from Mexico in the US that had lights, rail system etc... and 25 tons of pot. :shock:

    I can understand the charges under the circumstances but I must ask what state is this and I didn't know it was illegal to own ammunition or guns unless you are a convicted felon. In my house they won't find any stolen goods or pot, but they would dam sure find alot of ammo. :lol:

    Wow, I wonder what the police in Belize would charge me with if they searched my apartment. I would probably be sentenced to death.

    I was looking at countries to visit or maybe retire to, after reading about the lack of rights that a foreigner has there, and the midnight "raids" by police, I decided no way. Besides it's way too close to Mexico and their problems.

    That's what strict "gun control" will get you. The criminals get to kill at will using guns, knives, bats, or their bare hands for that matter, and there is a little a law abiding person could do to protect themselves.

    I think a lot of the countries down there have strict "gun control." It hasn't worked well for the citizens of any of those countries. The drug cartels and other criminals kill at will, and sometimes the police are so corrupt, they aren't must help. You couldn't pay me millions to be in some of those countries.

    Another one... 4 people arrested for possession of 1 round of .22 (LR?) ammo, and no bail.

    Have you looked at Panama? I heard that firearms including EBR's are ok there. I think you have to get a permit but allegedly it's not that hard to get.

    “The only power any government has is the power to crack down on criminals. Well, when there aren't enough criminals, one makes them. One declares so many things to be a crime that it becomes impossible for men to live without breaking laws.†-Ayn Rand
