Let me preface this by saying my gut instinct is “Eh, no big deal”. I’m asking in case someone who knows better says it is a big deal.
A couple streets down from my house lives a state trooper. I’ve never met him (or her) but see the car parked outside. The other day my son (age 12) said he found a bullet casing in front of their house while walking home. He showed it to me and it’s not a casing, it’s an intact 9mm hollowpoint bullet.
I know enough to not get all upset as though a bullet is going to bite him or something but is there any circumstance in which this should be addressed? Perversely, now my concern isn’t that he found it but that I’d follow my instinct to ignore it when I shouldn’t. I did take the bullet out of his possession.
