Decorated Combat Veteran Arrested In New York: Charged With 5 Felonies For Possession of AR Magazines

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

In the latest attack on the American people, a decorated War Hero has been arrested and charged with five counts of third degree criminal possession of a weapon, for having empty 30 round AR-15 Magazines in his vehicle.

On Sunday January 6th Staff Sgt. Nathan Haddad, a decorated combat veteran, was driving through Jefferson County New York when he was randomly pulled over for a vehicle check. Haddad, who had five 30 round empty magazines in his possession, was arrested by the Jefferson County Sheriff’s Department and charged with five felony counts.

According to Haddad’s brother, Michael Haddad, Nathan thought these magazines were legally made before the New York Assault Weapons Ban. When Nathan Haddad was arrested the new ban had not even been fully enacted yet.

This is not a criminal, this is not some thug looking to hurt people; this is a decorated combat veteran who was recently honored by the Philadelphia chapter of Blue Star Mothers and the Union League’s Armed Services Council for helping disabled vets get back on their feet. What’s happening to Army veteran Nate Haddad is an absolute attack on liberty. Here we have a man who honorably served his country, who was trusted with weaponry that far exceeded anything he was carrying, that now finds himself facing the possibility of spending years in prison.

Still think these gun control laws are meant to stop criminals?

Nathan Haddad’s brother has set up a legal defense fund for his brother who cannot afford to fight these charges on his own. We ask that you share this story with everyone you know so that this attack on Hassad is seen for what it is, an attack on every law abiding citizen in America.

      Haven’t you heard, veterans are the new terrorists.

      Since when are random vehicle searches legal???

      • ElOregonian

        But that POS, NWO sock puppet, NBC’s David Gregory can display empty AR15 30 rd. Magazines on the NBC studio set and that criminal jerk gets a pass!!! Man, people are really getting PISSED OFF at where these effing criminal Tyrants/King George III’s have taken us… I smell the odor of tyrannical stench in the air…. I will NOT submit.

          Then do something tough guy. All you whack jobs do is spew rhetoric about it being 1775 again and you are ready. I know you fancy yourself some revolutionary hero but you are not. If you find yourself quoting Adams or Jefferson daily you need to seek help immediately.

          A commenting commie below… Now that’s funny!!! You better blow because I hear Hugo Chavez demanding your presence… Hahahahahaha!!!!

      This is going to be a normal occurrence from here on out, and there’s not much that can be done about it.

      There was a Missouri Cop that called in to an internet talk show and said that they will probably start searching the homes of the offenders while they have them pulled over on the street.

      In other words, in this particular case, after having found the rifle magazines in Haddad’s car they would have sent a “search team” to his house to search for other “banned” items while they had him detained on the side of the road.

      Consider this:

      Gun Registration/CCW/NRA Member databases combined with the Automatic License Plate Reading System programmed into the city police departments dash cams and city owned street cams.

      The automatic license plate readers will highlight registered gun owners as they scan the parking lots and roadways.

      Once a registered gun owner has been pulled over and detained the search teams can then be deployed to the registered gun owners home to confiscate registered firearms.

      Have a nice day.

        Maybe in the Police State pocket of the Northeast US. NOt sure why anyone who loves freedom still even lives there, pays taxes there. This does not happen in Texas and Arizona (to name a few). AS it si now our Sheriff’s in AZ have already pledged to not follow any Unconstitutional Gun control laws. Police here that I speak with are happy to have law abiding, trained citizens the carry responsibly. Another crime fighter, if necessary. We do not have school and theater shootings out here. The would-be shooters know there is most likely a law abiding citizen in the crowd that can and will take them out. Since we allowed people to carry concealed in Arizona the amount of crimes with a gun actually went down measurably. Ask a hard criminal what their number thought or hesitation is before they walk up on someone or invade a home. THe answer from a national poll was “…that the person on the other side may have a gun.” Why is this so hard ot comprehend. You don’t bring a knife to a gunfight Capone!

        hese laws they want are null and void anyway if they violate our Constitutional Rights. Lest we forget!!! You people up in the Northeast have drank the coolaid now for far too long. Come outr west and thaw out your brain. You may see things a little differently. Peace!

          What laws? Bans on specific type of weapons? It’s not unconstitutional, professor. And before you get more confused, sheriffs do not have the authority to ignore federal laws. The Supreme court has said it’s constitutional for the government to set laws regarding gun ownership. Don’t forget about the Supremacy Clause. Go google it.

          The sheriffs here in AZ are stupid. Especially Sheriff Joe.

      For those of us in CT and similar states, this is our future. We need to contact our reps all levels right now, today and everyday until this administration is out. At the bottom of the attached blog is a simple way to automatically write you reps. Please consider doing so every day for the next week. Why not be a p art of history? :idea:

    • Reaper

      Pulled over for a vehicle check? He should have declined to be searched under his rights as a citizen andf the Bill of Rights….

    • Soffitrat


      Sick bastards.

      We need the alternative media to start talking about nullifying laws. Just vote not guilty when you are on jury duty on cases with these stupid, immoral, unethical and criminal laws. That would include home land security laws, tax, laws, gun laws, and drug laws to name a few. I have been on jury duty several times and the judge always asks if everyone will follow the law when deciding your verdict. They are afraid you won’t, and now is the time to start. This is a guy is a great example. I would never follow the law and convict this guy. Never, ever, ever. Would you? You would if you followed the “LAW”.

      This is a great power citizens have and I see hardly any talk about it. Take back your country.

    • LightandLife

      What is this guy doing with that many rounds? This is the kind of news that makes me wish they would put people away just for having 1 magazine, even if it is empty… what do they need these mass killing weapons for anyway… NOTHING…

      • Love Ya

        better watch out for this light and life person. i saw another blog that IT wrote on the horsemeat story today. what kind of comment is this? it is just meant to cause chaos and confusion. again, watch out for this one.

    • Witakers

      LOL it is starting already. . .i hope the soda gods come take bloomberg and smother him in fructose syrup

    • Eagleflies

      I doubt any Judge would even take this case. Well any judge who has a mind? Then again most judges are all liberal dumb asses.
