Man Will Not Get Back His Confiscated M1 Carbine, It’s An ‘Illegal Assault Firearm,’ Rules NJ Court

I had a M2 in Vietnam.  Don't guess they would have appreciated it either.........:)  Imbeciles.

New Jersey native Danny Burt inherited his grandfather’s M1 carbine in 2006.  Burt’s grandfathered served in WWII, so the iconic rifle meant a lot to the Cumberland County resident.

In April 2013, Burt’s entire gun collection — including the M1 carbine and 20 other firearms — was confiscated by the New Jersey State Police after a temporary restraining order was filed against him.
A month later, the restraining order was dropped.  When Burt, who had no criminal history, attempted to reclaim his firearms, the court ruled that “the M-1 carbine is an illegal weapon and is therefore improper to possess.”

“Burt claimed the rifle had considerable sentimental value to him, and that he had no knowledge as to whether the gun was operable,” the decision states.

  1. Why does any gun owner still live in that God-forsaken shithole?

  2. I thought if a person inherited an antique firearm it is perfectly legal.
