A 26-year-old man wearing a fake bullet belt, “sharp combat gloves” and “spiny leather straps” caused what Boston police called a “real panic” when he boarded an MBTA bus last Friday. Caliber 5.56 – Smaller, lighter with more bullets per belt, ideal for all rock goddesses The suspect, later identified as Kevin Young, 26, of Watertown, got off the bus and was stopped by police on Penniman Road, where it was determined that the ammunition was counterfeit. Officers seized a total of 69 replica bullets. The suspect was wearing what was described as thorny combat gloves and thorny leather straps. Even then, I don`t think it`s legal to carry ammunition in public, because it can be considered a violation of the peace. Your best bet would be to contact the Gardaí as they have all the information. Hi!, I`m a big fan of bands like Metallica and Motorhead and I wanted to get a ball belt because I think they look cool, but I hold back because I`m not quite sure if it`s legal to wear them, I tried to look around on Google but nothing useful came, so I thought, I would ask here, thank you in advance!. Once arrested, although the police determined that the bullets were indeed replicas and not dangerous, they still arrested him. The charges included “illegal possession of ammunition”, “unlawful carrying of a dangerous weapon (gloves and spiny/riveted bracelets)” and “disorderly conduct”. So, tell me about the benefits of the Baltimore uprising, where does it come into play? When I got out of court, I was really relieved. With my label, instead of being a for-profit record company, we try to do things that help people or just give away someone`s art. If someone doesn`t have the three dollars for a cassette, I give it to them.
So I sat in court and thought, I`m really lucky – I`m white, a college graduate, an engineer, and I could have a lawyer. I was lucky. I could only think if I had been black or if I had ever been arrested or something like that if I had been treated extremely differently by the justice system. For me, it was much more important that the Baltimore Uprising compilation was released because there are many people who remain nameless and faceless in detention cells and faceless and are subjected to fabricated charges for doing something for social change. I was just sitting on the bus. I felt a little guilty about all the attention. Many people deserve this attention. The suspect appears to be a member of the Hexxus crust band. Bullet Belts have been an integral part of fashion for punks and metalheads for decades.
A post on the group`s Facebook page encourages the group to provide a “benefit” for legal fees. The Hexxus Bandcamp page is currently empty. It`s your quarter of an hour, guys. You may want to address this issue. Do you think this has anything to do with the fact that people in Boston have been panicking lately about potential threats? I`m really not sure. I think from my own point of view, ball belts and this kind of fashion are so culturally rooted that I would never believe that there are people who have never seen a photo of a famous punk or metal musician in the last 30 years. I don`t know what kind of person the police would call because of a person wearing a bullet belt who only cares about their own affairs. I think we live in a culture of fear, and there`s a huge amount of misinformation out there, and people feel isolated and afraid of the world. I don`t know what it means to call the police when someone is looking after their own affairs.

The ultimate heavy metal belt worn by James Hetfield of Metallica, Lemmy of Motorhead and Janick Gers of Iron Maiden. Available in 17 lengths and 3 types of balls, they are perfect for everyone and are the perfect way to display your real metal references. You still had to pay for a lawyer, I guess? Yes, I owe money to people who allow me to borrow money for my legal fees. It was actually a very quick process. I was arrested on Friday afternoon and released alone that day. I went to court at 8:30 a.m. on Monday. Again, this is mostly beyond me as I`m not sure what a bullet belt is, but if it`s made of real bullets, you`ll need to sign up for a gun first (although you may not want to own a gun). Only to possess/carry ammunition, you must be registered. What happened next? Then, after getting off the bus, I waited for the next one.
I got on and sat in the back of the bus, taking care of my own things as the bus drove through Brighton Ave. to the bottom of Allston and stops at the Pizzeria Regina stop. At that time, I was a little angry that I had been thrown off a bus. I thought, I don`t know what`s going on, I`m just going to call an Uber. I went out, and while I was waiting, a policeman jumped out of a car and told me not to move. I explained to them, I know why you are here, the bullets are fake, I am not a threat to anyone. At that time, between 12 and 15 other officials showed up. They let me take off my belt, my boot straps – the little rivet straps on my boots, which sometimes contain dummy balls. They let me take off my gloves and a collar, basically, they let me remove all the accessories I had on my body.
As far as I know, you can wear one because they are not real balls. But… Would you really like that? Noisey: Can you explain what really happened when you were arrested? Kevin Young: I was on my way to a friend`s house by bus in Harvard Square. The bus driver came back and told me she wouldn`t let me take the bus which was “dressed this way,” in her own words. I explained that I had been getting on the bus with a bullet belt for years. I said they were wrong and there had never been a problem. But instead of fighting them, I decided to get off the bus. I did an internship at mbta, and my neighbor growing up was driving a bus, so I didn`t want to cause grief to these people, they just drive a bus. Caliber 7.62 – Our standard heavyweight machine gun bullets for the streetwear M60 streetwear bullet belt with really aggressive heavy metal look to carry up to the size of 36 inches. All straps are inert and safe. You can bring the belt to the desired waist by removing the balls one by one until it rests directly on your hips and waist. I`m NAL and I know almost nothing about ball belts (I suspect it`s a literal bullet belt as I see it in cartoons).
What I do know is that in Ireland, under the 2008 regulations, the following is restricted: people have been wearing ball belts across the country for years, 99% of them are spike-free, so you can`t confuse them with live clubs. If you can do it, go for it! What is the composition? We start with a print run of 250 cassettes. There are 28 groups from all over the world, from all inhabited continents of the world, from 13 to 14 countries. A few bands gave us new songs. We sell the compilation for $5. This will come out in the next two weeks. All the proceeds, every penny goes to Baltimore United for Change. We have huge groups, Kromosom from Australia, Oi Polloi from Scotland, Skitsystem from Sweden and a bunch of small groups, this group from Mexico called Wasones. We try to get an accurate representation of the different parts of punk from all over the world.
