    Maybe this is why I can't find rimfire ammo...

    Dang Canadians - they're smuggling rimfire from the US to Canada. Where in the heck did this guy even find 3,450 rounds of .22 ???

    DETROIT -
    Federal agents in Detroit have seized 3,450 rounds of ammunition from a vehicle trying to enter the U.S. from Canada across the Ambassador Bridge.

    U.S. Customs and Border Protection said Tuesday that the rounds were for a .22 caliber weapon and concealed beneath the front passenger seat floor mat.

    A 36-year-old Canadian man entering through a trusted traveler program lane Wednesday had told authorities he had no items to declare.

    A secondary inspection turned up the ammunition. He was questioned by Homeland Security and released.

    The man also was issued a civil penalty and removed from the NEXUS program, which allows pre-screened travelers expedited processing by U.S. and Canadian officials.

    Acting Port Director David Beculheimer says the program "allows low risk, frequent border travelers benefits not available to others."

    Actually, he was bringing it into the US from Canada, as the story plainly states.

    He was trying to smuggle ammo INTO the US. Perhaps he was trying to help us with the ammo shortage with regards to 22lr. Rather than prosecute, we need to encourage him to bring MORE!!!!!

    No. I think you got it backwards. The canadian was smuggling the ammo INTO the US, from Canada. He was coming FROM Canada, into the US, and the US authorities found the ammo on him at the crossing.

    Probably bringing into this country to make some money at inflated prices. That's all...
    The police are not there to protect you from crime, they are there to arrest the guy after the crime has been committed, assuming they find him. It is your responsibility to protect yourself and your family.

    Every time I was up in Canada in the past our dollar had theirs beat.
    Firing a suppressed is on my Bucket List.

    I'm just a spoke in the wheel but not a big deal.

    America...a Constitutional Republic. NOT a democracy as the liberals would have us believe.
