No. You are probably thinking of the letterhead requirement for officers to buy semi-auto weapons for duty use during the 94-04 Federal ban. That did not include FA weapons.

It is not uncommon for officers to pay for their own personal weapons yet buy them on letterhead for official use. In my agency officers all own their own weapons including ban era ARs that were bought on letterhead with personal funds.

I think what the judge saw in this case, was that there was no intent to own this weapon for personal purposes, rather an officer who used his personal funds to buy the weapon for official purposes. The basis of our justice system is still that each case be judged on its own merits, and that seems to me what happened here.


Odd that one would have to pay for an item that they may not own.


Gift?! If the Dept needs but cannot afford XYZ, Officer that needs item uses a bakesale to purchase. No law broken but the taxpayer spared the burden.

Volunteer Fire Dept do this stuff all the time. Firefighters buy it with money from wherever , own pocket or bakesale, and the title is with the agency for liability reasons.

If that was the case the Department should have a Form 5 or 10 for the weapon, if not it is a unregistered MG and is just as illegal for them to be in possession of as you or me.

Since you mentioned intention, lets look at the intent.

Was it ever mentioned if this officer actually trained ANYONE with this rifle?
Wouldn't there be paperwork on said training?

Aren't fully automatic weapons like this supposed to be checked out of the
department's armory? Was this weapon ever logged into the armory's inventory?

Does anyone actually believe that the supervisor doesn't remember if he signed
the letter allowing the purchase?

Wasn't the rifle found at the officer's home?

To me, it sounds like the officer intended to obtain this rifle for his own personal
possession and use. I seriously doubt that the rifle ever saw the inside of the
police station.

Doesn’t even have to go that deep.

It just needs to be traced through the BATFE and if it was never transferred either to the officer or the PD then he should be in deep shit.

This was a NFA (tittle 2) weapon not a tittle one weapon that may be bought and transferred directly from transferor to transferee
Link Posted: 8/31/2006 8:44:37 AM EDT
Illinois home dispaches the ISP. They REQUIRE that the duty weapons be locked in the Cruiser trunk or glovebox or IN THE OFFICERS HOME This weapon was purchased out of his pocket to TRAIN officers as the state didn't/wouldn't fund the purchase.

Batfe went too far when they busted this guy with other officers who had converted semiautos. My opinion and the courts opinion agree.

While Sgt Vest MAY have danced around at the edge of the law in the opinion of the BATFE the court saw no willful violation of the NFA.
Link Posted: 8/31/2006 8:45:16 AM EDT
I don't like the fact that if it were anyone else, they would be in jail. However, being that the prosecution never claimed that it was used for anything but official purposes, and the judge said the law was too vague to convict him, I agree with the ruling. Sounds like the prosecution dropped the ball on the case. Personally, I would rather side on the side of innocent, and keep borderline cases from being convictions. That, by a logical standpoint, would keep a lot more innocent people out of jail. Criminals will be criminals, and they will have a few more chances to stay at the motel max.

And I'll ask you, since you deal in C3 firearms - if you do a transfer to a LEO (individual, not the department) who has dep't letterhead authorizing him to own it, what BATF form gets filled out?

If the judge had ruled that the law is constitutionally vague for EVERYONE, not just because hes a LEO, I might support the ruling(setting a precedent. Sp?)

I thought new machine guns could only be sold to military, or goverment agencies.

That a police officer (hopefully former in this case) is too stupid to comprehend the difference between an individual and a government agency is, frankly, beyond belief.

I therefore have to conclude that the officer is full of shit.

I find it similarly hard to believe that a judge is too stupid to find the distinction between a government agency and individual to be anything but crystal clear.

The inescapable conclusion is that he is an elitest bastard who fashioned a narrow bullshit ruling to get his bro off the hook.

I am not happy that this guy got off in this manner. Every law or ruling that exempts police from the laws that every other citizen is compeled to follow is another nail in the coffin of our republic.

But you and I weren't given the loophole that LEO and MIL in his official capacity were. BATFE screwed the pooch when they didn't prove the alledged forgery. That is the entire case as the Judge saw it. I agree.

You sound like a criminal talking. Besides NOBODY except the Military and Police would need a weapon capable of firing in fully auto. None of the weekend warriors (including you) would ever need full auto unless you just wanted to be cool and show it to your friends. He did nothing wrong so stop crying.


Sorry to sound so harsh, but you sound like a hard-core-anti-gunner. It's not about need. It's not about justifying the need to a higher authority.

Why do you instantly assume that the previous poster is a criminal or a weekend-warrior? Is it so you can feel better about triviolizing his concerns or is it so you can feel better about taking his rights because he doesn't need them?

Do you really need everything that you own? Or do you have most of it because you can and want to?

Ok, follow-up question. That rifle is on a Form 1 somewhere (Colt?) and on Form 3 to Botach Tactical. So did Botach send it out without the proper BATF paperwork?

The implication now is that the NFRTR is not 100% accurate as the BATFE has been testifying in numerous court cases... but we knew that, didn't we?

let's do the official time line (if you will) if we can.

The weapon was mfg. on a form 1 (was the tax payed or not? I’m assuming not)

Then transferred to Botach on a tax exempt form 3

Then was it Form5 or 10 to the Agency? The ruling says it was registered to the State agency so I assume it was transferred.

So like VA the State of IL has a MG registration? But that doesn’t really matter on the Federal level.

If the weapon was not registered (NFA registry) to His official department or him Care of his department he was/is in possession of a unregistered MG. It's pretty simple LE or not a NFA weapon must be transferred correctly through the BATFE. If it was papered to him or his department (even though if papered to the agency he should not have control of the weapon if not on official duty, try telling the cops your holding onto your friends legally owned transferable MG and see what happens) he is clear.

Happens a lot with Equipment..If the AWB had not expired, those firearms would have had to have been given or sold to either the agency, or another officer upon that purchasing officer's separation from the agency or retirement. Without a LOT more information on this one, im not sure how to read it..one would think the FFL/SOT just for his Own protection would make sure the paperwork is in order, no matter who the purchaser was.

From Attorney: Law should not apply to police; Says cop bought gun to use in his duties:


Vest, a firearms instructor and former State Police Tactical Response Team or SWAT team leader, is accused of violating a federal law regulating automatic weapons. An indictment states Vest improperly ordered the M-16 in 1998 from a California supplier and then failed to register it with federal authorities. A prosecutor has said Vest used a fake state police letterhead to order the weapon that he paid for with his own money.


In this case Vest should have a Form 5 for the rifle. If he did and was still prosecuted then someone at BATF/DOJ needs to be slapped. If not, he was very lucky.


But Cook argued that the purchase was approved by a police supervisor. He said the automatic carbine, or short rifle, was then duly registered with the Illinois State Police, where it has been used for eight years, primarily on police training ranges.


I'm wondering if the reporter didn't make a mistake, and the rifle was registered ***by***, not ***with***, the IL State Police. If so, the PD would have the rifle on a Form 10 and could issue it to any trooper. That trooper could then posess it at home, car, on patrol, etc... and the BATF/DOJ needs to be slapped.

Perhaps the officer was also on the SWAT team, which is quite common. He would use the rifle for instruction, plus keep it in his personal possession for rapid response, as do other members of the SWAT team.

So, since this guy was found exempt from the laws because he fell into the law enforcement or miltary category does that mean somebody in the military can buy a machinegun on their own as long as they're only buying it to use in a professional capacity. What if this was Pvt. Joe Snuffy and he sent off a letter on Company stationary with the First Sergeants signature (forged, not forged who knows)? The judge would have called BS.
