It's a legal loophole that some collectors believe allows them to collect arrowheads on federal land.

There are numerous problems with the "loophole" because, one, arrowheads aren't always arrowheads from an archaeology point of view, and two, the government can still charge a collector with theft.

first they have to catch you. If you are just picking it up off the ground it would be about impossible to be caught. I think some here are blowing it out of all proportion to try to scare people off from doing it. I for one have looked for things on federal land but not dug or metal detected. What I find on top of the ground to be caught would have to have a park ranger walking with me.

It's illegal because it's wrong. Those artifacts are part of all our history. When you remove them you are stealing from everyone else, and because you are sneaking around to do it you are damaging the historical record that archaeologists and historians depend on. Lie, cheat and steal. The person who does these things because he can get away with it is a person with no moral compass.

You seem to think there is some moral order to the universe. There is not. I also laugh at people who say not to recover artifacts from places like the Titanic. Ya let them rot away instead of recovery. One does what one does. I can say if I find something on the ground and pick it up I can sleep very good at night.

I believe in right and wrong. You do not. Karma can be a *****.

the sum of a person's actions in this and previous states of existence, viewed as deciding their fate in future existences. If your using your own arbitrary definition well that's just you. Being an Atheist I do not believe in Hinduism or another religious BS. So if you believe picking up an arrowhead will compromise my reincarnation well I leave you to it.
