Reload with what? Commit a crime and stop to gather up all the shells?
Use a case catcher? Reload with sufficient precision that the round actions
the mechanism on auto without jamming it?
"Import it from the USA"? We could salt that supply too.
"Salted" ammunition wouldn't "end up back with the good guys" because
official ammunition is sourced legitimately, not "off the street". It's a
secret operation and could be isotope marked.
"Liability"? The liability is limited in the case of a criminally held
firearm, but that is why I suggested using thermite instead of an explosive.
An irretrievably welded up illegal gun won't get you much in the courts.
Except 5 years, of course.
In the meantime, very few people are running around the city with legitimate
masses of metal under their counterfeit Armani suits.
We can detect and arrest them.
All of them.
Pity you aren't brave enough to get by without a gun.
It must be all that spoonfeeding they go in for where you live.
