Decorated Army Veteran Arrested in NY For Possession of 30 Round AR Magazines

by Guns Save Lives  |  published on February 18, 2013

According to wwnytv.com, on January 7th, 32 year old Nathan Haddad was arrested when police discovered five 30 round (standard capacity) AR-15 magazines in his car during a vehicle check.

Haddad was charged with five counts of third degree criminal possession of a weapon and arraigned in Watertown town court.

Looks like any other crime report under New York’s draconian gun laws.

However, here is where things get interesting. According to Haddad’s brother, Michael Haddad, Nathan though the magazines were “pre-ban” which would have made them legal in New York. Currently, in New York, you can possess magazines over 10 rounds if they were made before the state’s first Assault Weapons Ban (however, 2 weeks ago New York passed another law completely banning these magazines, but that law is not in effect yet).

Also to add to the plot, Nathan Haddad is a decorated army veteran, serving 12 years in the Army, multiple deployments to Afghanistan, and numerous honors. Nathan was discharged for medical reasons after being injured during special forces training in South Korea.

Remember how David Gregory illegally possessed an AR-15 magazine in Washington DC, during a broadcast? Gregory was never charged, never made to sit in the back of a police car, never finger printed, has no arrest record, and prosecution was certainly never on the table. This is a perfect example of gun laws only applying to normal citizens and not the rich or famous.
