I know some of you dont frequent the GD forum, but I wanted to let people know that there is a legal fund for him. He has refused a plea deal. We all know that he should have known the law before going to NYC of all places, but maybe he had a crazy idea that the Constitution is the supreme law of the land and the Bill of Rights applied to all Americans.
Anyway, here is the link to the sticky in GD if you feel inclined to donate
ETA - I think this puts NYC in an awkward spot. PERHAPS they dont want to be seen as being insensitive to a Vet. If this gets enough attention, maybe it will work in his favor.
Back before the internet made information so easily-obtainable, I illegally carried a handgun in my vehicle in Chicago. It just never occurred to me, having been raised down heah on Tobaccy Road, that an American would be prohibited from owning a handgun or carrying a loaded handgun in his vehicle.
Fortunately, I didn't get caught/prosecuted and only discovered that I'd behaved illegally after-the-fact.
On-the-other-hand, I left a loaded G21 in my then-18-yr-old son's glove compartment, even though I knew that GA law prohibited it. I weighed the chances of his ever having his vehicle searched vs. the consequences of his being attacked by an uncivilized tribal savage DemocRAT.
