First victim of CT gun laws

Man with a gun permit charged with carrying a gun that had more than 10 rounds in it:

Norwalk Police wrote a summons for Tyrone Watson, 30, of Bridgeport, on Sunday for possession of a large capacity magazine on or after Jan. 1, 2014, that was obtained prior to April 5, 2013. His court date is Jan. 17.

And the man did not know about the law.

    Ignorance of the law is no excuse. Of course, when you pass so many laws that no man could possibly hope to know them all, we all become potential victims of a cop with a code book.

    Seven felonies a day…

    Ex post facto – let’s see if the courts can translate.

    Ted:

    Federal judges are starting accept ignorance of the law as an excuse, in regards to esoteric regulatory violations.

    No one can be expected to read tens of thousands of pages of regs.

    Unless you’re a cop, or some other member of the royalty official whose job involves enforcing those laws. Then you get a free pass.
