The area around my house is within the "1000 Feet" outline in Federal law. Other than being in a vehicle, what exceptions can be made for me exiting my property with a firearm without breaking this law?
answered on Jan 23, 2023
That is an excellent question.
The Federal law that you speak of (18 U.S.C. §§922(q); 921(a)(25)) does indeed prohibit possession of a firearm that is within 1,000 feet of a public or public school, but it does NOT apply to possession of a firearm on private property that is NOT part of... Read more »

You should speak directly with an attorney about these issues. On first reading, it doesn't sound as if you would have any legal prohibition on owning or possessing a firearm, but you don't want to put yourself in a bad situation. A legal forum is no substitute for speaking directly... Read more »

Can they do that? Sure. But how they handled the gun might effect whether it was contaminated for DNA testing purposes.

The defendant is looking at 5 years in state court. The sentence could be even longer if the defendant is charged in federal court.

First get an attorney. Don’t represent yourself. Your attorney can help to minimize any consequences that you might be facing here.

This is something law enforcement would help with. Call the relevant authorities.

answered on Feb 2, 2022
The results of the blood test are completely irrelevant as to whether they can charge you with possession of the syringe. They are unrelated to each other. You should get an attorney to represent you on the possession charge. It is at least a gross misdemeanor, maybe even a felony. Do not... Read more »

This question needs to be asked in a military law forum or in a Germany criminal law forum. Minnesota law would not apply to this situation.

If I take the blame for their crime to save them, can the prison sentence be removed?
answered on Jan 16, 2021
If you take the blame, you also take the consequences - including a potential prison sentence. Pleading guilty to something you didn’t do is a terrible idea. Get an attorney on board to help you.
