Take a look at this; the BATFE has apparently convicted a man of illegally owning a "machine gun" when a gun designed to be semi-automatic misfired at the range. Think of the great legal mind when you consider that the man was sentenced to 30 months in jail despite the fact that the BATFE demonstrated no motive, despite the fact that no one was hurt by that weapon, despite the fact that the BATFE offered no statutory or regulatory definition of a true machine gun, and despite the fact that the defense was not allowed to closely examine the weapon or the evidence presented against them.
In short, exactly this kind of thing is why our forefathers cited Blackstone as a reason to throw off the rule of King George. Hopefully an appeals court throws this conviction out with prejudice, and hopefully somebody takes note and disciplines the clowns at the BATFE and DOJ who perpetrated this travesty.
