Vet Arrested for ‘High-Capacity’ Magazines in NY (Part 2)

WASHINGTON TIMES | Former Army Staff Sgt. Nathan Haddad was arrested in LeRay, Ny. earlier this year for possessing five 30-round magazines, which are perfectly legal nearly everywhere else in the country. New York passed a law in 1994 prohibiting magazines over 10 rounds.

For this, the veteran of the war in Iraq, who devotes his free time to supporting other veterans, was thrown in jail and charged with five felonies and faces a maximum of seven years in state prison. If he is convicted of even one felony, he will lose his Second Amendment right for life.

“He’s not proclaiming innocence,” Sgt. Haddad’s brother Michael said in a phone interview. “He thought he had something that was legal and it turned out that they weren’t.”
