Ninth Circuit Issues First Impression of 18 USC 1028(a)(6)

A fellow stores his gun with the border guards along with the Canadian border, as they do as a courtesy for law enforcement officers who are heading to Canada. Problem was, he wasn't a law enforcement officer, but used a fake ID, but a fake ID that, he argued, didn't clearly indicate it was issued by the US Government. Based upon the purpose and text of the statute, the Ninth Circuit affirmed his conviction in U.S. v. Fuller, __ F.3d __ (9th Cir. July 8, 2008), available here.
