An Army veteran who served in Iraq pleaded guilty on September 15 to all seven counts in an indictment that charged him with illegally possessing a cache of weapons and ammunition in his pickup truck. Dominic Meyer, 21 years old of Sayreville, entered the guilty plea as jury selection for his trial was about to begin at the Middlesex County Courthouse in New Brunswick.

He is facing up to 27½ years in a New Jersey state prison, with a mandatory minimum term of three years, when he is sentenced November 16, 2009, by Superior Court Judge Bradley Ferencz.

Meyer pleaded guilty to two counts of unlawful possession of a handgun, four counts of unlawful possession of a weapon and one count of possessing a hollow-point bullet.

Before the defendant pleaded guilty, Middlesex County Assistant Prosecutor Bina Desai was prepared to present evidence and testimony showing Meyer was carrying, in his truck, a .32-calbier revolver hidden under the front seat, a loaded .45-caliber pistol lodged between the two front seats, and an 11-inch-long bayonet that was sticking out of a vent on the truck's dashboard.

The weapons were discovered by Sayreville police when they stopped Meyer on Horseshoe Road in the borough on September 29, 2008, after receiving reports that a pickup truck and a motorcycle were racing on local streets.

The two handguns and the bayonet were recovered during a legal search of the truck. Police also seized 38 rounds of ammunition, one hollow-point bullet, nine empty magazines for ammunition, a military-issue knife, another knife designed for throwing and a throwing hatchet.

Meyer, who has been discharged from the Army, remains free on $100,000 bail pending sentencing.

Carrying "interesting weapons" and drag racing while doing so is the very epitome of idiocy.

Handgun hollow points are illegal, not rifle.

I'm an idiot, carry on.

Please don't spread misinformation like this.

It's perfectly legal to own and use any and all hollow points. Just don't commit any crimes with them or you'll face additional charges.
