Ok if you know about mirts there was a law passed last year or this year can't find it right now that makes it a federal offense to have one or use one. It is a arrestable offense. However I was sent an e-mail yesterday by someone saying that a man in Colorado was ticketed $50 for using one and it was confinscated. He said he had had it for 2 years and bought it off e-bay.
This was a cnn article. Well this morning it was featured on Good Morning America and they showed video of the guy using it. I have not seen this video but from what I heard you really can't see that he is using it but only that the cameras always showed a white truck going through the intersection when this was occuring.
Well now that this guy is all over the news I wonder if they are going to upgrade the charge or just leave it alone. I don't even understand why they are making such a big deal out of it but I am guessing this is the first time someone has ever really been tracked down for using one.
Anyone else see this story?
