    I am not a lawyer by any stretch. But I would assume something like this would read

    18 USC 922 paragraph A section three and paragraph b section three

    If the question is about "§§", then it is read as a plural of '§' which is the symbol for "section".

    @rick benjamin - - no, it is just the same example law.

    I, not being in the legal profession, am wanting to be able to say the reference properly -
