Ok, while i appreciate the link, that is all an opinion piece, and the guy didnt even get his information right about the DUI charge, unless i missed something, wasnt it later announced that he was never charged with Marijuana?
I was not aware of the specific intent, but i still havent seen anything conclusive as to what he has actually been charged with.
ETA: i dont know how many in here are familiar with CA gun laws, but in CA i beleive even some SKS models (unless c&r(curio and relic) compliant) are indeed considered Assault weapons if not fitted with CA compliant modifications and parts.
For those that dont know what an SKS is, it is a rifle with a fixed ten round magazine that is fed from the top by stripper clips.
So again, my main interest right now is finding out what the "assault rifle" was and what compliant parts it had.
the guns aren't legal because of technical specs that most of us know nothing about.... which could be in Aldons favor considering the jury would not understand the difference in why the same model is legal or not legal in Cali
On another note, Marshawn Lynch had DUI legal troubles before his Cali gun charge and he is still playing with no jail time
Yea im not really interested in other athlete cases. Aldons is very unique in its own right.
And yes, i explained some about CA compliant parts, but from my experience, MOST gun owners do indeed do research as to the laws of their states regarding firearms. Most CA gun owners are very aware of the need for compliant parts.
I was aware of them before i was old enough to own a gun in CA. They are nothing new really.
The jury would indeed understand the difference, as the differences are typically very visual. For example, my AR-15 has a pistol grip, colapsable stock, and flash hider. To my understanding, all of these features are illegal in CA. All they would have to do is show a picture of Aldons gun, and a CA compliant gun and the Jury would see the difference.
Again, im not arguing about the likelyhood of a felony conviction, im just discussing what i know about firearms.
