Nothing more than a political prisoner.
Yet one more attempt to show appeasement to the powers that be - that DA is setting off fireworks to get attention - like one poster suggested on the comments on the webpage - to seek future political office...and she will sink this Army vet to do it...
She’s scum - the state of NY is scum - and if it wasn’t for all the capitalism - would look like the 80’s movie with Snake Blitzkin running around...
If you like your rifles, magazines, and freedom - then move out of NY and send a message to those liberal states...
John Jay, the first Chief Justice of the U. S. Supreme Court stated in 1789: "The jury has the right to judge both the law as well as the fact in controversy." Samuel Chase, U. S. Supreme Court Justice and signer of the Declaration of Independence, said in 1796: "The jury has the right to determine both the law and the facts. " U. S. Supreme Court Justice Oliver Wendell Holmes said in 1902: "The jury has the power to bring a verdict in the teeth of both law and fact." Harlan F. Stone, the 12th Chief Justice of the U. S. Supreme Court, stated in 1941: "The law itself is on trial quite as much as the cause which is to be decided."

One omission in the article is how much time he would have to serve on the plea bargain. Elsewhere it was suggested that they are so desperate to maintain this law that his choice is “30 days and disarmament for life (for a guilty plea) or 35 years in prison (getting out when he is 67 years old)”.
30 days and disarmed for life, or 35 years.
Personally, I would go for the 30 days, then move to a gun friendly state and ask *them* to restore my gun rights. New York would be apoplectic.
