Thread: Ma. Miscarrage of justice

    A 'judge' is quite possibly going to decide what a container is. Not good for you.

    Have an administrator erase this thread, hire a capable attorney, and post a new thread once it is resolved.

    Geez- My heart goes out to you on this one. As others have said, get lawyered up fast. Remember, the DA is the Government and an elected official, therefore, will play to his base. If he can posture about "being tough on guns" and it will help him get reelected be sure he will. Pray for the best, but prepare for the worst. Good luck!

    Yes, you should be left alone. But take heed. There are forces involved beyond reasoning in cases like this.

    The guy in this thread rolled the dice with a jury and lost big time.

    Discuss the options with your attorney.

    I wish the best outcome for you. Let us know how it turns out. In the meantime limit communication to that between you and your lawyer.

    There is a heroin junkie who lives two houses from me. The kid buys and sells dope in the street like he has a license to operate. People have been calling the town police for TWO YEARS, and nothing ever happened to him. finally, I was weeding my flower bed when I reached in and pulled out two bags of new and used needles, I could have been stuck by. That pissed me off, and I called and the town sent an ambulance to pick the needles up, and there were sales slips in the bags. CVS could clearly trace who these were sold to with the time stamp. Nothing ever happened, until he went to the next city over and got caught B&E ing houses. THEN he got caught a few weeks later with dope in the same city. 30 days later he's back doing the same sht over and over.

    I don't call it assachusetts for nothing. I'm really sorry to hear your story. If you go to pre trial hearing don't waive your right to a jury trial.

If the courts want to fabricate the laws as they go, that will be flagrant dishonesty. I believe that this should become a public relations nightmare for those who would entertain the notion of striping away my career and entire livelyhood through such an ambiguous definition as 'secured and locked container' of which they have failed to define 'container' under the law. They would need to rewrite the law if they wanted to become specific with the word 'container'. As it stands now I will NEVER plead guilty or pay a 'fine' which is also an admission of guilt. If need be I will force this whole issue to trial and let a jury decide. A D.A. should weigh this carefully, he would stand to lose much more through public opinion than he could ever gain by trying to be a hard charger after me, all the while being soft on repete criminals. I simply should be left alone.
    This is MA, we all should be left alone to live and pursue happiness. The liberal left has done away with the idea of simply living as a free man or woman. There is little understanding here with regards to personal rights unless they are cute and cuddly. Owning and using firearms is a subject that does not apply to everyone. People who don't own or use them often have little tolerance for those of us who do. I'm interested in knowing what comes of this and what decision is handed down. I'm a MA resident and know how extreme the loathing of the liberal left toward law abiding gun owners can be.

    Contact Gun Owners Action League and ask if they know of any case law precedent in MA that may apply to your situation.

    Good luck, I'll say a prayer for you...
    You can give peace a chance alright..

    I'll seek cover in case it goes badly..

    Pretty sure nobody will consider a "home" a "container". You have the option of installing a trigger lock if not in a container in the home. Lost of guns have built in trigger locks from the manufacturer now.

    I share your outrage, but you must heed the several warnings to remain silent!!!. Hopefully this thread will be erased before the MA authorities discover it.
