Enforce the gun laws on the books

And then pardon them, if they’re connected:

Larry Wayne Thornton of Forsyth, Ga., was sentenced to four years of probation for “possession of an unregistered firearm” and “possession of a firearm without a serial number.” He is one of 17 people pardoned today.

Unregistered? It’s Georgia, registration is prohibited by state law. So, was this an NFA item?

    Appears to be NFA:

    “(d) to receive or possess a firearm which is not registered to him in the National Firearms Registration and Transfer Record; or”

  2. wfgodbold Says:

    Yup. Under federal law, “firearm” = NFA.

  3. Ron W Says:

    IF we were operating by “the Supreme Law of the Land” (Article VI, Section 2) “under federal law”, i.e. “delegated powers” re; weapons, would only include those “who may be EMPLOYED by the United States” (Article I, Section 8.16)

    Well, on The Walking Dead last night, Rick knew which stores in Hometown, GA had guns in them because he signed off on their registration when he was a deputy…so there is that.

    Though in the comic he was from a suburb of Lexington, KY.

  6. Mu Says:

    yes 26 U.S.C. §§ 5861(d)is possession of an unregistered NFA item

    Which could have been any semi-auto that malfunctioned and fired 2 rounds.
