    Curious out-of-stater question -- Pokemon World Championships pair arrested

    Anyone heard about this and why (or for what) they are being charged??

    http://www.bbc.com/news/technology-34040088

    Two men have been arrested at the Pokemon World Championships venue in Boston, US, following a tip-off by the event's security staff.

    Police found several weapons in their car including a shotgun, a rifle, "several hundred rounds" of ammunition and a hunting knife.

    They have now been arrested for unlawful possession of a firearm and ammunition, as well as other firearms offenses, Boston Police said.
    It is MA and guns for the great unwashed masses is frowned upon...especially hoosiers from outta state.

    What's unlawful about a shotgun? I "understand" the AR is too "scarey" for MA. ;-) Or was it that they moved from IN TO IA? :-)

    Nothing wrong that I can see...but of course instead of keeping lips shut they yapped yapped yapped ... if demanded a lawyer they would have been fine as the cops had no evidence to support any crime that I can see ... guns on private land at the time.

    Gee, David, I guess that means the laws that require one to have state permission to possess a firearm, regardless of whether or not you take it out in public after first getting it home, are not enforceable?

    Must be another one of those memos that got misrouted on its way to me.

    In which case thank goodness for the laws against making terroristic threats, especially against making those threats via interstate communications.

    stay safe.

    Not Hossier, hoosier...akin to redneck, lowbrow, rube, bumpkin, ect...a flyover country derogatorium. Particular, or peculiar, to folks in the Show Me State.

    Nothing personal, the term hoosier could be, or not [gets complicated at this point], received as a term of endearment by the recipient. Just as rednecks are proud, mostly, to be referred to as a redneck.

These people were not from Indiana. They are not "hoosiers". Let me know what a "hossier" is and we'll see if they might be one of those. How did "The Show Me State" get into this, that's Missouri?
    Here ya go.

    As a matter of fact I am proud to be called redneck.
