    Soon after settling into a booth, Davis said, she pulled out the moon sample and about half a dozen sheriff's deputies and NASA investigators rushed into the eatery.

    When [armed] officers in flack vests took a hold of her, the 4-foot-11 woman said she was so scared she lost control of her bladder and was taken outside to a parking lot, where she was questioned and detained for about two hours.

    "They grabbed me and pulled me out of the booth," Davis claimed. "I had very, very deep bruises on my left side."

    Wow. There are many times more Moon rocks on Earth from...

    Oh, drat. This is the gun forum, not my astronomy and astrophysics forum.

    The 1st protects the 2nd, and the 2nd protects the 1st. GET THIS OR LOSE IT ALLl: 27-2=0. Our 2A is THE bellwether, and ain't none finer: Islamic Reality. Our Founding Fathers on Church and State. PC=ZERO.

    Well that woman was clearly an armed and violent criminal, who took that moon pebble by force from a poor, defenseless, government hero!

    Yep, they could have just sent her a nice letter explaining the law. She probably would have sent it back to NASA gift-wrapped with warm cookies. Another government over-reaction...

    Moon rocks are illegal to own. Unless you are the original recipient. If I was given a moon rock by NASA, out would be illegal for my children to inherit it. Total BS, but true.
