  1. I was wondering how criminals and in this case future criminals were getting around the ammunition laws here in California and the answer is right there in that picture. They use reloads. Meaning someone is making bullets for them and making guns for them. With this one arrest and some good investigative work, you can find out who is making the bullets and guns and who is doing the tooling work and take them down. I am not unfamiliar with the reasoning behind ghost guns, but if you can’t be sure the guns you make are not winding up in the hands of children, criminal futures or not, you need to find another occupation, like shining metal bars in jail.
