    The problem is the NRA only made this a positive defence with no penalties whatsoever for local officials that thumb their nose at the law. You "might" win in court.. but what's it going to cost you in legal fees? And even if you "win", like this soldier did (I would not call copping a plea to a lesser a "win") you probably won't get your property (guns) back.

    Thanks NRA for a worthless piece of legislation that also banned guns though a poison pill amendment.

    The cops who would make such an arrest deserve no better.
