When is a gun not a gun?
I have one clarification to make and it might be a game changer. The pistol was LOADED! He just forgot it was even in the backpack until he was asked then remembered and told the truth. By the time it was over, this mistake had cost him a couple of grand.(lost pistol, lawyer fees and fine) Since this was New Jersey(they don't recognize the Constitution or the Second Ammendment) I think he was lucky to not be in jail!
