About Statute 930 Possession of firearms and dangerous weapons in Federal facility
Before all of you crucify me please let me say that I know that CCing in Federal buildings is illegal, and for that reason I WILL NEVER DO IT! Ok, just to make sure … I AM NOT ASKING IF I AM ALLOWED TO CONCEAL A FIREARM ON A GOVERNMENT PROPERTY. Here is my question: when reading the statute about it I am not sure that I know how to correctly interpret a subsection; Statute 930 Possession of firearms and dangerous weapons in Federal facilities, Subsection (d) (3), at http://www.joebrower.com/RKBA/RKBA_F...FFRRG_2000.pdf, (almost at the end of Title 18 chapter 44, which is the first one).
§ 930. Possession of firearms and dangerous weapons in Federal facilities
(a) Except as provided in subsection (d), whoever knowingly possesses or causes to be present a firearm or other dangerous weapon in a Federal facility (other than a Federal court facility), or attempts to do so, shall be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than 1 year, or both.
(b) Whoever, with intent that a firearm or other dangerous weapon be used in the commission of a crime, knowingly possesses or causes to be present such firearm or dangerous weapon in a Federal facility, or attempts to do so, shall be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than 5 years, or both.
(c) A person who kills or attempts to kill any person in the course of a violation of subsection (a) or (b), or in the course of an attack on a Federal facility involving the use of a firearm or other dangerous weapon, shall be punished as provided in sections 1111, 1112, and 1113.
(d) Subsection (a) shall not apply to -
(1) the lawful performance of official duties by an officer, agent, or employee of the United States, a State, or a political subdivision thereof, who is authorized by law to engage in or supervise the prevention, detection, investigation, or prosecution of any violation of law;
(2) the possession of a firearm or other dangerous weapon by a Federal official
or a member of the Armed Forces if such possession is authorized by law; or
(3) the lawful carrying of firearms or other dangerous weapons in a Federal facility incident to hunting or other lawful purposes.
I am not referring to officers, agents, etc., authorized by law. Does this subsection imply that if the firearm or weapon is “incident to hunting or other lawful purposes” then the individual will not be prosecuted?
