Re: Marine faces 15 years behind bars for unknowingly violating gun law
Even though I agree the sentence is an overkill, it is still the gun owner's responsibility to know the law wherever they carry their firearms. Most, if not all, concealed carry permits are not applicable to all 50 states. Living in Southeastern PA and so close to the People's Republic of New Jersey, I never carry across the state line. Their gun laws are ridiculous! If you go to a gun show in PA, they have signs that state something along the lines of, 'Cannot buy this if you are a NJ resident'. It sucks for this guy if he is sentenced to 3.5 years, but hopefully it will remind other gun owners to check state laws before traveling.
