3) Criminal Charges Against Militia Members Who Brought Guns To Nevada Another federal law provides that “[w]hoever transports or manufactures for transportation in commerce any firearm, or explosive or incendiary device, knowing or having reason to know or intending that the same will be used unlawfully in furtherance of a civil disorder” may be fined or imprisoned for up to five years. This statute could potentially form the basis for criminal charges against some of the militia members who traveled to Nevada with their guns in order to support Bundy. In order to convict someone charged under this law, federal prosecutors would need to prove that the militia member transported their gun with reason to know that it would be used “unlawfully in furtherance of a civil disorder,” so this statute could not be used against someone who had no reason to suspect that they were traveling towards anything other than a peaceful protest. A civil disorder is defined as “any public disturbance involving acts of violence by assemblages of three or more persons, which causes an immediate danger of or results in damage or injury to the property or person of any other individual.”

Three Ways That Nevada Rancher And His Right-Wing Militia Supporters Could Wind Up Behind Bars



Your initial statement was incorrect--it is not illegal to transport firearms across state lines. I do it all of the time. The statute says that it is illegal to transport for the purposes of "unlawful civil disorder" and this intent is very difficult to prove.

Here's some typical protesting....

Paid Ferguson Protesters Demand Their Back Wages From Acorn and Soros





Thank you for the link. After reading it, I did a little research on the MAU group that were protesting MORE... it's given me a little different perspective. It seems that the MAU group are a genuine local grassroots group. I don't think they really work for MORE though. It seems MAU is more than a little angry? resentful? of this ACORN offshoot coming into their town to make $$ off their misery and problems while doing nothing positive or proactive, and are demanding some of the loot. I don't blame them.

It seems to me now that whatever thugs MORE hired, they aren't part of this group.

I saw a tweet from MAU that indicated MORE did "cut the check." I'm guessing MORE couldn't have that kind of bad publicity from the locals.

I suspect this isn't over yet. I doubt MORE will change their spots, and I doubt MAU will kowtow to them... I'm still hoping MORE pisses them off again, and MAU starts spilling the beans about MORE.

This is why my daddy always told me to be good to everyone, because you meet the same folks on the way down that you met on the way up! (And I do try... but it sure can be tough sometimes)

I didn't claim you broke the law I claimed the Bundy protesters broke the law.
