Sassy Liberty AMERICA’S FREEDOM FIGHTERS – 

43-year-old Bryan Moles of Edinboro, Pennsylvania was arrested in his hotel room on weapons charges at Trump International Hotel at approximately 2:00 AM Wednesday.

Moles had a Glock pistol, a Carbon Bushmaster AR-15 rifle, and 90 rounds of ammunition inside his car.  His car was parked outside the hotel on Pennsylvania Avenue in Northwest Washington.

One of the weapons was visible inside the car while the other was found in the glove compartment. Police claim to have tracked Moles to the D.C. hotel after he made unspecified threats.

D.C. police seem to be making much of the fact that  Moles is a United States military veteran that they are claiming suffers from PTSD.

They claim Moles made threats of an unspecified nature and they tracked him to the hotel, yet they also state Moles was a guest at Trump International Hotel because he was a fan of President Trump.

Other reports have stated it is unclear if Moles posed any sort of threat.

Law enforcement officials claim Moles told someone about the guns in his car and that person alerted police. Moles vehicle was subsequently searched and his firearms were confiscated.  Moles was then arrested and charged with carrying a pistol without a license, which carries a sentence of up to five years in prison and/or a fine of up to $12,500. It is currently illegal to have a rifle and handgun without a license in the District. Prior to the Heller decision in 2008 (District of Columbia v. Heller, 554 U.S. 570) an individual had no rights to possess a firearm for self defense in D.C.

The Supreme Court struck down provisions of the Firearms Control Regulations Act of 1975 as unconstitutional, determined that handguns are “arms” for the purposes of the Second Amendment, found that the Regulations Act was an unconstitutional ban, and struck down the portion of the Regulations Act that requires all firearms including rifles and shotguns be kept “unloaded and disassembled or bound by a trigger lock”. Prior to this decision the Firearms Control Regulation Act of 1975 also restricted residents from owning handguns except for those registered prior to 1975.

Given that Moles is from Pennsylvania he may have been a permit holder in his home state.  D.C. is not a reciprocal area in fact, despite the Heller decision the ability to obtain a license to own a firearm in the District is virtually impossible unless one is monied or connected, making the actual practice of self-defense unchanged despite the landmark case.

This is a developing story.  More information is expected to be learned at a 11 a.m. press conference.
