Could be a technicality. I have to double check the statutes and regs.
Darren, don’t waste your time. Kelly got caught and is a liar. But rules are for peons (or conservatives).
Look at the NBC clown David Gregory. Waves an AK mag that is illegal in DC. Rules do not apply for the elite.
DC Atty General stated - prosecution would not promote public safety in the District of Columbia nor serve the best interests of the people of the District to whom this office owes its trust.
Gifts to non prohibited immediate family members are tolerated, but that must be the intent. Kelly has provided ample public evidence that his intent was to transfer to a non immediate family member to defeat the law.
In short, Kelly premeditated intent to commit a firearm transfer felony (for political purposes), not to buy a gift for a child or spouse under his guardianship and instruction.
A proper jury would send him to prison on his own words, while giving a pass to a father buying a 22 rifle for his 12 year old.
