    Does ammo have to be registered in DC or is the media taking liberty with the "law" again?

    Yes:

    No person shall possess ammunition in the District of Columbia unless:
    (1) He is a licensed dealer pursuant to subchapter IV;
    (2) He is an officer, agent, or employee of the District of Columbia or the United States of America, on duty and acting within the scope of his duties when possessing such ammunition;
    (3) He is the holder of the valid registration certificate for a firearm of the same gauge or caliber as the ammunition he possesses; except, that no such person shall possess restricted pistol bullets; or
    (4) He holds an ammunition collector's certificate on September 24, 1976.

    7-2501.01 Definitions
    (2) "Ammunition" means cartridge cases, shells, projectiles (including shot), primers, bullets (including restricted pistol bullets), propellant powder, or other devices or materials designed, redesigned, or intended for use in a firearm or destructive device.

    7-2507.06 Penalties
    (1) A person who knowingly or intentionally sells, transfers, or distributes a firearm, destructive device, or ammunition to a person under 18 years of age shall be fined not more than $10,000 or imprisoned for not more than 10 years, or both.

    This means that possession of even a single round of ammunition or a component, like a single bullet or fired cartridge case, including a dummy round, probably even including a novelty key chain made from a cartridge, is an equivalent violation to possessing an unregistered firearm.
    Only the feds can have weapons (I think the body guard details of visiting presidents, etc.. can have weapons also) without restrictions or registration. Only the People who aren't feds/elites are banned from owning handguns and cartriages. They are allowed registered long arms but they have to be non-firing condition even at home.

    The seat of government in DC is the derriere of the nation.

    Easy there Mtbiker, this guy isn't exactly a "star", more like a never was been. This story is about in line with everyday news in DC as far as I'm concerned. Just my 2cents.
