Firearms Friday – What Is Class 3?
- Blocked barrels
- Record feral hog
- Class 3
- A New York home owner defended himself and is arrested
- Connecticut police
Starting the show off with a safety tip as usual Glenn reminded hunters especially to closely examine weapons that have been stored for a period of time. Glenn related this story,
This week a guy brought in a .22 rifle that he had shot and the rifle had a blockage in the barrel and of course the barrel ripped up, kinda flowered.
If your gun has been stored for a while it's a good idea to inspect your gun and part of that inspection is looking down the barrel. I know it sounds bad. After you've made sure your gun is not loaded look down the barrel to make sure there is no obstruction.
Our next topic was a Long Island, New York home owner being charged for defending his home from five armed men. According to Fleming,
Bear in mind this was captured on video. A home owner had five armed men break into his house and one of them shot at the home owner, the home owner shot back and killed one of the home invaders. The police investigated and could not find an expended round from the bad guys so they arrested the home owner for defending himself. All they had to do was look at the video. This is insane. New York is off the deep end.
We next asked Fleming to define 'Class 3' and he replied,
Basically it has to do with National Firearms Act weapons. Short barrel rifles, short barrel shotguns, suppressors, machine guns and destructive devices, one of my favorites. And yes, you can buy a piece of artillery which is awesome!
