Just say that the possession of the mags were an extension of his 1st amendment rights ... or does that only work for certain people?

He'll be fine. Theres no way he'll actually get convicted of five felonies. It'll almost surely be dropped to a lesser charge. The mans a damn war hero after all. He was released without bail. That should tell you somthing right there.

Theres a reason why this made headlines is to get everyones attention. If you have these high capacity magazines you better get rid of them like a hot potato. He still is in violation of the law and those magazines are illegal. We'll have to follow this story to see the outcome. Im sure this will geet coverage from a lot of news networks.

Actually it is very common for a first time offender to get released without bail. That has nothing to do with whether or not you will be convicted.

I like the one comment on the link about it being ex post facto law and they need to show who is the victim of his "crime".

They made it clear none of those principles matter to them.

I think 30 rounders were already illegal in NY. 10 was the max, now it is 7.

Bushman: Ah, that might explain why I was confused. I thought when they changed the law, people had a year to comply. Still sucks though.

It still seems ex post facto to me if he acquired them before any crazy law.

Pushing back lawfully is one thing, ignoring the laws is asking for trouble. No one will stand up for this guy, he broke the law and will pay for that mistake. When the SWAT teems arrive at your door all bets are off, you are on your own.

I dont see it. A guy buys a gun with a few 30 round magazines from a gun shop years ago when nobody said it is illegal, they change the law years later and now he is a criminal. That's ex post facto and prevented by the Constitution.
