    In an active shooter, robbery or other dangerous public situation if the Good Guy (or Good Gal) manages to get a firearm away from the Bad Guy, could they be charged with a misdemeanor for that battlefield pick up? If they then hand that firearm off to another Good Guy while tending to the wounded have they now technically committed a felony under these new laws?

    I would hope not in that situation but i would hate to test it out in Mult. County.

    Holy crap. And this is the type of place that Obama looks to for gun laws? Those people are frickin' crazy! Talk about irrational fear and irrational actions. Guy does the right thing and is busted for it?

    Every time I read a story like this I'm reminded of just how brilliant the founding fathers were to secure our rights in the Constitution.

    Well....

    I can bet that whatever seems sane and reasonable, is the opposite of what they will do.

    594, there is an authorization for Emergency self-defense transfer without BGC, but ONLY once jeopardy is imminent and ONLY if the transfer lasts "no longer than absolutely necessary".

    For example, you manage to take one off a thug and put him down, you have to leave it there--if you hold onto it just in case he's got a buddy then you're potentially eligible for a 594 Violation.
