Ridiculous case in Virginia

Postby Ohio9 » Sun Feb 04, 2018 3:10 am

Man arrested because a detective at a firing ranged said he saw him put a 30-round mag in his AR. It was legal for the man to own 30-round mags and legal to own the AR, but somehow not legal for him to load the 30-round mag into his AR.

This seems like something that would happen in only the craziest anti-gun states like New Jersey or New York.

References to Zhao’s nationality, echoes of the 2007 mass shooting at Tech and more recent national immigration debates have swirled around rumors of weapons stockpiles and warnings that students should stay away from large lectures.


Racist much? Tech was shot up in 2007 by a student of Korean (not Chinese) descent. As if certain ethnic groups can't be trusted with guns? Allegedly the Tech murderer used a Glock 26 (9mm) and a Walther P22 (.22) to kill 32 people before killing himself. I remember the media saying that "first person shooter" video games made him a deadly shot, which is a ridiculous idea. The official story of what happened at Tech that day is very suspicious.

Back to Zhao, if you read the whole article, it sounds like the local police had to have been looking for something to bust him on. Obviously the detective who arrested him was aware of who he was, his legal status and the technicality on which to charge him. Something is very fishy about this whole thing.

My thoughts exactly. The police don't seem to have any physical evidence here that Zhao ever possessed a 30-round mag at the range, much less put it in his gun. If a detective really saw him do this, he should have arrested him on the spot and collected the 30-round mag as evidence (not that I think he should have been arrested for this even if he did do it, but that's a different issue). The fact that this didn't really doesn't add up. Hopefully this will go to a sensible judge who will dismiss the case for lack of evidence.
