Feds Drop Homemade AR-15 Case for Fear of Hurting Wider Gun Control System
AWR Hawkins, 14 Oct 2019
Federal authorities dropped their pursuit of alleged homemade AR-15 maker Joseph Roh for fear a trial in his case could upend decades of gun control.
CNN reports that Roh allegedly had machines to manufacture AR-15s in a warehouse outside Los Angeles. Customers could come to the warehouse and allegedly build their own rifles “for about $1,000.” Roh allegedly maintained his business, even after ATF officials warned him ‘in person…that he was breaking the law.”
Roh was eventually indicted, only to have federal authorities drop charges after prosecutors grew worried that a ruling in the case would be detrimental to the larger gun control system. They specifically worried the 1968 Gun Control Act could be endangered and that a trial might “seriously undermine the ATF’s ability to trace and regulate firearms nationwide.
