How Much Ammunition Can You Carry?

Reported by Donna - April 17, 2007 -

Today on Fox and Friends Brian Kilmeade and Gretchen Carlson had Geraldo Riviero and Shepard Smith on. In addition they had David Katz, president of Global Security Group, a firearms expert and Bo Dietl, former NYPD detective.

The discussion got around to ammunition and David Katz gave his opinion as to how much is too much or not unusual at all.

Kilmeade asked how someone who might be an exchange student would get that type of weaponry. Kilmeade added that according to the Chicago Sun Times that he did confirm that the suspect was Asian and he was a student. (Comment: Like him being Asian makes a difference)

Katz answered Kilmeade by saying the suspect had no legal right to have it. Kilmeade said he had a lot of ammunition.

This is when Katz felt he had to make the point that he didn't have a lot of ammunition. He said that he was a former trainer at Quantico and they used to tell their trainees to carry 4 or 5 magazines and throw an extra 100 rounds in their pockets and that was 150 rounds and it was not not hard for the trainees to carry 150, 200, or 300 rounds on their person. He added it was done everyday by policemen.

Gretchen Carlson said that was a scary reality and Kilmeade added that that was an excellent perspective.

Comment: What may be a usual amount of ammunition for a policeman to carry is not a usual amount for an ordinary citizen to carry around on himself. (Or am I living in some bizarro world?) Katz is saying this is not unusual at all.
