Captain 1 week, 2 days ago on High demand likely to blame for ammo shortage

Hollow points are a blessing in many circumstances when it comes to defending one and ones family, and sometimes a curse. hollow points are far less likely to penetrate walls and hurt third parties. hollow points have far more stopping power if say someone is charging you, as opposed to being shot with a full metal jacket bullet and it may go right through the perp with little initial stopping power. there are many reasons for the economics of hollow points in this country and any other that allows ammuntion sales and purchases.

Captain 1 week, 2 days ago on High demand likely to blame for ammo shortage

The federal government has in fact bought billions of rounds in the last few years. Every caliber you can think of and every type of round, including hollow points. The use of hollow points in war is strictly prohibited as written in the Geneva Convention. This ammo shortage is a combination of federal and civilian purchases.

What a sick tragedy. Good work to the police involved. To those involved with Yesica's murder...may you all rot in hell for eternity. I do not feel this to be a vulgar statement, at all.

This is sad to hear that our local wheat is becoming more and more genetically modified. there can be benefits to gene modification of plants but unfortunately much of the engineering of gmo crops is for other reasons. Monsanto's stranglehold on the industry is a growing issue.

Captain 1 year ago on Milton-Freewater judge subdues suspect discovered rifling through home

This was not a smart way to handle a burglar whom you have at gun point! They wrestled around? What if the burglar wins the struggle? He kills the judge and his son? No, Tucker should have blown his head off

Captain 1 year ago on Man sentenced to time served in New Year's attack in Walla Walla

Wow, a 42 day sentence for a known gang member after committing a rather serious and utterly disgusting offense. Seems like someone dropped the ball big time on this case. Those 15 gang members essentially have now been reinforced in the notion that they own these streets.

Captain 1 year, 1 month ago on Parents need to stand up to NRA

It sounds like we have a huge thing in common...the unwaivering and undying love for our children. This is why I will teach my kids the value of honor, respect and how to shoot the whiskers off a mouse at a hundred yards! It physically hurts me to hear someone (especially locally) tearing down the 2nd amendment. The USA and the Swiss are two of the last (essentially) developed countries left on planet earth that have not been disarmed! And what do you know...Switzerland is the safest country in the world. hmmm... oh and its not the NRA driving up gun sales its more like the fact that our government has bought out all the ammo in America (all public records) which creates buying frenzies. In the last 12 months they have purchased well over two billion DOMESTIC rounds. These are mainly hollow point rounds which are against the Geneva Convention for use in war so yes these are domestic rounds. Our government has the huge prepaid ammo contracts which gives them priority above the citizens. luckily some ammo companies are seeing the writing on the wall and are dropping or delaying government contracts. I hope one day the original poster will take the blinders off and even possibly pick up a history book. history is as crazy if not crazier than any science fiction film you have ever seen. My kids will be taught how to survive not how to stand in a bread line. God Bless our Founding Fathers. You may have heard of some of them: George Washington...whos that? Benjamin Franklin, Thomas Jefferson...kind of rings a bell I hope. They specifically gave us the 2nd amendment to overthrow tyrannical rule. Without the firearm we are at the complete mercy of...(fill in blank either way its scary). Thanks Walla Walla Union Bulletin for hosting these discussions.
