Default Gaffney in the news (Handgun charges)

PHILADELPHIA -- Eagles wide receiver Jabar Gaffney was arrested and charged with unlawful possession of a handgun following a traffic stop last month, county prosecutors said Friday.
Gaffney had a permit to carry the weapon in Texas, but not in New Jersey, Camden County prosecutors said. The charge carries a maximum five-year sentence but most first-time offenders get no jail time.

Gaffney, 25, was stopped on June 20 by police for driving erratically on the Walt Whitman Bridge, which connects Philadelphia and New Jersey. As Gaffney was reaching into the glove compartment, the officer saw the handgun, a loaded .380 semiautomatic that was registered to another person riding in the car.

Story continues...

I suppose no one on this board has ever let a license expire and procrastinated renewal or moved to another state and procrastinated getting a new license in that state. Moreover, I am sure there is no one on this board who would do anything to protect the 2nd Amendment. Much ado about nothing.

As Uncle Hulka said, "relax Francis."

I know that the probability of him pulling time or anything more than a slap on the wrist is not high, but IMO this is just a stupid thing to do. Gun licensing laws are typically very clear and violation is an automatic arrest. Further, as a celebrity or someone with a lot of money who stood to either be targeted or even potentially extorted by corrupt police/officials, I would make it a point to ensure that my license is up to date and correct. I have several guns and have made it a point to ensure that my use/possession has remained entirely lawful. IMO there's just not a good excuse to wager your freedom and criminal record on keeping a piece with you, but without knowing the specifics of Gaffney's incident, I'll not bother commenting further. Just hate to read about him or anyone really who is probably a good citizen who just should have known better.

I would agree with your take, but the gun was not registered to Gaffney but to someone else in the vehicle.

It's one thing to be in your car, you just moved from another state you are licensed to carry a gun, and forget to remove the gun from your vehicle. That is fair enough, but a bit generous.

This was someone else's gun, which means it was probably put in the vehicle recently. Who is this person? Personally, I am not going to ride around with someone and their gun that I don't know very well.

If it was his gun, I may be able to buy it was an innocent mistake that he forgot about it or whatever. It's not his gun though, so there is some reason why it was there and who is this person?

That fact alone makes me suspicious of an innocent mistake theory.

I once lived for a year in one state with expired license plates from another state... and without switching my driver's license over, either. Then I moved to another state and got everything squared away... and then moved back to the original state after a year and a half.

EXACTLY! I agree 100%. I have a license to carry in one of the toughest states to get one....California. I am very careful when it comes to my handgun. Knowing the hoops and jumps that I had to go through to get the license would prompt me to take care of business immediately after moving. Also, the law is very strict on Conceal Carry violations.
Again, this handgun did not belong to him. What was it doing in his glove compartment? It didn't fall out of the sky and land there.

I don't really know much about gun law, so please excuse my ignorance.

If the gun was registered to another person who was in the car, why did Gaff get arrested and charged? The guy who owns the gun was there? If anyone should have gotten charged, wouldn't it have been the owner since it was his?
