i don't see the difference honestly. the gun was registered too, just not to the state he was in.
Let me give you a hypothetical situation. Say you live in New Jersey. Your gun is registered in New Jersey. Now you have an emergency in NYC that you have to attend to, you have your gun in your car bc you keep it for protection.
So you go to NYC, and for whatever reason, get pulled over by a cop, and he finds your gun. You just violated NY's gun policies. Bc you have an unregistered gun in the state.
So you could face jail time for that.
Its not what Plax did that bothers me, its the idiocy of the law that bothers me.
