No, instead, a gun-rights activist has now been charged with possession of a gun in Washington D.C. in violation of those same laws:
Adam Kokesh, a controversial activist seen loading a gun in D.C.'s Freedom Plaza in a video posted to YouTube July 4, has been transferred from Fairfax County and charged in D.C. with openly carrying a shotgun in violation of D.C. laws.So, is it justice to administer the laws to favor of activism on the liberal anti-gun legalization side versus the other conservative, pro-gun legalization side?
He is specifically being charged with violating the following offense:
Carrying a Rifle or Shotgun (outside Home or Place of Business), in violation of 22 D.C. Code Section 4504 (a-1) (2001 ed.))
The maximum penalty for those who have not previously been convicted of a felony is a fine of $5,000 and/or up to five years in prison.
Those who have been convicted of a felony could face a fine of up to $10,000 and/or up to 10 years in prison.
