ABSOLUTELY!!! I've found that the "anti gun" LEOs and DA's will use anything they can any way they can against everyone they can. Don't mistake my comment to mean all LEOs, just the JBT types. Doesn't sound like you fit in that category.

Why bother with something so stupid and unenforceable?
You stated in your original post, "ignorance of the law is no excuse". Many times laws are written vaguely in a effort to satisfy both sides when it rarely satisfies either. Most of the time all it does is cause normally law-abiding and honorable citizens grief.

Being vague, YOU must make your own decision as to what is right and honorable. It gives those that want a tool to use against anyone and everyone something to use. They are the one's you need to ask how they can do it. It easy to do just not right.
