NY Report: Prosecutors to pursue felony charges against ex-soldier  for possessing high-capacity magazine (No weapons, no ammunition, no threats or crime, just empty magazines to potentially turn a person into a felon facing years in prison? Outrageous!)

Politics | Patrick Howley
Nathan-HaddadNew York prosecutors will pursue felony criminal charges against  retired special forces soldier Nathan Haddad, who was arrested in LeRay, New  York in January for allegedly possessing five 30-round AR-15 magazines,  according to conservative law blog Legal Insurrection.

Prosecutors had reportedly offered Haddad a plea bargain that would spare him  jail time if he admitted to five misdemeanors, according to Legal Insurrection.  But Haddad’s attorney told the blog that Haddad, who currently works at the  Department of Defense, will not accept the deal.

Haddad was deployed four times during his ten-year Army career, and was  once injured during special forces training in South Korea. He was  discharged in October 2010.

A website established to pay Haddad’s legal expenses has  collected more than $35,000.

In January, “Meet the Press” moderator David Gregory displayed a  high-capacity magazine live on television, despite a warning from local police. But  prosecutors in Washington, D.C. — where, unlike New York, the offense is merely  a misdemeanor — declined to press charges. (RELATED  OPINION: Apparently, gun laws don’t apply to David Gregory)

Nathan is a decorated soldier who has been recognized for his community service in helping other veterans.  (More on Haddad here.)

Jamestown Resident Raising Funds For Brother’s Defense

February 15, 2013 By Eric Tichy (etichy@post-journal.com) , The Post-Journal

A decorated combat veteran and Chautauqua County native has made national headlines after being arrested a month ago for possessing empty 30-round magazines. His brother is now lending a hand.

The arrest and subsequent charges come after New York state recently placed further limits on the number of bullets held in a magazine.

Nathan Haddad is facing five felony counts of third-degree criminal possession of a weapon for the Jan. 6 arrest in LeRay by sheriff’s deputies. No weapons or ammunition were found in his vehicle, police said. The former combat veteran has a court appearance Wednesday in Jefferson County.

His brother, Michael Haddad, of Jamestown, is spearheading efforts to get those charges reduced. Through an online blog – gofundme .com – Michael has raised more than $38,000 for his brother’s counsel.

“When I found out he was arrested, it wasn’t about whether he committed a crime or not,” Michael Haddad told The Post-Journal. “The main thing for me was to get those charges reduced.

“My whole purpose is to make sure my brother has adequate funds to fight this thing. This isn’t about creating a debate about guns or the law. It’s about helping a disabled veteran.”

Nathan Haddad was a 12-year combat veteran in the U.S. Army before receiving a medical discharge in 2010. Michael Haddad also served in the Army.

Police said his possession of the Colt Manufacturing AR-15 rifle-style magazines violates current state law, passed in 1994, which limits the number of bullets in a magazine to 10. According to a police report from the Jefferson County Sheriff’s Office, Nathan Haddad was found in possession of the 30-round magazines by deputies at 5:41 p.m. on Steinhilber Road in LeRay.

Michael Haddad said he does not know what his brother was doing with the magazines at the time of his arrest.

The New York SAFE Act, which was recently signed into law by Gov. Andrew Cuomo and further limits magazines to seven bullets, begins in April.

Michael Haddad, who is considering running for a County Legislature seat representing Jamestown, said he’s surprised by the attention his brother’s story has garnered. He’s also grateful for the donations.

“Within the first week I think we raised a couple thousand dollars,” he said. “But once people found the website we raised almost $18,000 within a 24-hour period. That is what has been most humbling.

“A lot of the donations are from unemployed people donating $5. They’re telling me, ‘Here take this. This is all I have.'”

Michael Haddad stressed his donation campaign is not about gun rights, although he believes his brother would make a great spokesman on the subject.

“I always tell him he is the poster man for gun rights,” he said. “If you wanted someone to stand up and shoulder the weight, he’s the guy.”

Injured special forces soldier arrested in upstate NY for possession of high capacity ammunition magazines

While the prosecutors in D.C. decide whether to charge David Gregory, another example of how the laws against possession of high capacity ammunition magazines are applied to the little people is unfolding in upstate New York, as reported by The Watertown Daily Times, Injured veteran arrested in weapons investigation (h/t

Is there a “David Gregory Clause” in the New York Gun Law?

Posted by   Thursday, January 17, 2013 at 3:50pm

We have a Gun Class Project ongoing to try to unravel the 39-page gun law passed and signed into law this week.  It is a very complicated Bill, to put it mildly.

One thing I just noticed…

(One thing we’ve noticed is there are some words that should be freely and often associated with this mess, words like: Arbitrary, capricious, convoluted, heavy-handed, oppressive, tyrannical, and violative!, all thanks to NY’s Nomenklatura)
