Instant felon for non-crimes:
In the latest attack on the American people, a decorated veteran has been arrested and charged with five counts of third degree criminal possession of a weapon, for having empty 30 round AR-15 Magazines in his vehicle.
On Sunday January 6th Staff Sgt. Nathan Haddad, a decorated combat veteran, was driving through Jefferson County New York when he was randomly pulled over for a vehicle check. Haddad, who had five 30 round empty magazines in his possession, was arrested by the Jefferson County Sheriff’s Department and charged with five felony counts.
According to Haddad’s brother, Michael Haddad, Nathan thought these magazines were legally made before the New York Assault Weapons Ban. When Nathan Haddad was arrested the new ban had not even been fully enacted yet.
This is not a criminal, this is not some thug looking to hurt people; this is a decorated combat veteran who was recently honored by the Philadelphia chapter of Blue Star Mothers and the Union League’s Armed Services Council for helping disabled vets get back on their feet. What’s happening to Army veteran Nate Haddad is an absolute attack on liberty. Here we have a man who honorably served his country, who was trusted with weaponry that far exceeded anything he was carrying, that now finds himself facing the possibility of spending years in prison.
Still think these gun control laws are meant to stop criminals?
Nathan Haddad’s brother has set up a legal defense fund for his brother who cannot afford to fight these charges on his own. We ask that you share this story with everyone you know so that this attack on Hassad is seen for what it is, an attack on every law abiding citizen in America.

As much as I want to feel sorry for Haddad I strangely don’t. Reading his brothers comments that this fellow fought for “justice” and America, helping disabled vets (who likely wouldn’t have been “disabled” had they stayed home), doesn’t make the fact that he was fighting in a country where he and his buddies were unwelcome and unbidden. The regime he was defending wasn’t obviously worth the time of day.
God, how I hate not being able to edit. Dom, you gotta find a plug-in for WP to allow that.
Eric, I’d like to know where you found this. Citation please.
Here’s another version of the Nathan Haddad story, MoT
Yeah, I saw the SHTF before but it too doesn’t lead anywhere but the story itself. Where is the “source” story? I haven’t seen anything outside of these and it’s like reading a press release. Has ole Whitehead, the one who got that one guy off after being dragged from his home, been notified? The MSM have been silent.
There’s only 3 minor “mainstream” articles in google news.
Yeah, like “Barrack Hussein.”
That’s TWO strikes, right?
But he has one of them Mooosleeem soundin’ names there fella! Per the Terrorist Matrix of Big Sis that’s a strike against ya.
