BIRMINGHAM, Ala. – -(AmmoLand.com)- From the press release found here.

A federal judge this week sentenced a Tuscaloosa man for being a felon in possession of a machine gun, announced U.S. Attorney Prim F. Escalona and Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives Special Agent in Charge Mickey French.

U.S. District Judge Annemarie Carney Axon sentenced Devontay Jerrod Hutt, 25, to 72 months in prison for being a felon in possession of a firearm and 72 months in prison for possessing a machine gun. Each count to be served concurrently with each other. Hutt pleaded guilty to these charges in January.

According to court documents, on December 31, 2019, Hutt had an encounter with Tuscaloosa police officers at a restaurant in Tuscaloosa. Officers received a tip that Hutt possessed a firearm. When officers arrived at the restaurant, Hutt and another individual fled, eluding officers during a foot chase. Inspecting Hutt’s vehicle from the outside, officers could see two pistols and suspected drugs in plain view in the front seat. Officers searched the car and recovered a pistol that qualified as a machine gun, a second AR-style pistol, high-capacity magazines, pills, and marijuana.

“Prosecuting felons who illegally possess weapons is a priority of my office,” U.S. Attorney Escalona said. “We commend the Tuscaloosa Police Department on their work to prevent violent crime and for the quick actions of the officers in this case.”

“Removing the criminal element that used a firearm to facilitate violent crimes is a priority of ATF,” SAC French stated. “ATF’s partnerships leveraged NIBIN technology that will have a lasting impact on the community.”

The ATF along with the Tuscaloosa Police Department investigated the case, which Assistant U.S. Attorney Alan Baty prosecuted.

This is a prime example of why “gun crime” flourishes in the U.S.. The laws that would keep the bad guys off the streets are either not enforced or sentences either inadequate to the crime or are watered down, when the perps should serve the full term for each count SEQUENTIALLY not concurrently. If getting the book thrown at one was the rule, that might give bad guys pause.

Another person arguing for even harsher penalties for violations of gun control laws. People are begging for a totalitarian society.

When people are cuffed and stuffed and hauled off to jail for possessing a non-registered semiautomtic rifle, they are going to say with a shocked face: “Wait, I’m the bad guy?”

The AmmoLand twit who wrote the headline either can’t count or has no clue what the word “concurrently” means — the sentence in this case was SIX years, not twelve years as stated in the headline.

The federal prosecutor claims “Prosecuting felons who illegally possess weapons is a priority of my office” but his office gave this felon a plea bargain with a sentence of only six years – and of course he won’t serve all of that.

what made the first firearm a “machinegun”? did he have a rubber band with it? (at one point the ATF considered a rubber band a “machinegun part”)
Did it have a “bump stock”? they are now LEGAL in Alabama and every state that didn’t “Outlaw” them, the Federal court overturned the Trump bump stock ban! (I don’t see why that didn’t overturn the state bump stock bans too. or at least start the court case to get them overturned)

I started in 76 and I only saw a 30 round. The extra height was a problem and they had feeding problems with the 30 at first. When trying to stay low and shoot the thirty put to much of your body up in the air so that is another reason for the 20 rounder but they also carried the thirty rounders and switched to them when the fire fight started because they need more rounds for closer quick action and less reloads. So yes, they were going to use 30 at first but didn’t because of the problems and… Read more »

Here is what Wiki has to say about it:

“Production of the 30-round magazine started late 1967 but did not fully replace the 20-round magazine until the mid-1970s.[148] Standard USGI aluminum 30-round M16 magazines weigh 0.24 lb (0.11 kg) empty and are 7.1 inches (18 cm) long.[138][150] The newer plastic magazines are about a half-inch longer.[151] The newer steel magazines are about 0.5-inch longer and four ounces heavier.[152] The M16’s magazine has become the unofficial NATO STANAG magazine and is currently used by many Western nations, in numerous weapon systems.”

Humm well then in 76 they must have been having you use the old stuff just before the new came out. The war ended in 75 I think and I went in 76 which would put us both on the edge of getting the new and loosing the old.

Crappy reporting??? No.
“A pistol qualifying as a machine gun”, as should be obvious, is a firearm that will fire two or more rounds with one trigger pull (that’s what makes it a machine gun) that also qualifies as a pistol.
Since the second pistol is listed as “a second AR-style pistol”, that should make it obvious that the first pistol, described above, is also an AR-15 pistol.
Not crappy reporting. Just crappy reading comprehension.
Glad to explain that for you.

Just about any semi automatic will fire two shots in a row if you do not hold it tight. Especially those with match triggers. As the recoil pushes back the trigger can reset then as it returns forward the finger fires a second shot.

He was a felon in possession of a firearm. He gets to pay the price. That said I do believe that not all felonies should result in loss of gun rights. The article doesn’t mention how he earned his previous felony/ie’s. However, this guy was a felon and, at least it appears, to still be livin’ the crime life so he earned this, it wasn’t just laid upon him.

I’m very curious what gun and configuration they claim was a machine gun.

As I mentioned to wil a couple times, my view of politics is that it is not like a piece of paper with two sides, but more like a dodecahedron.

State/county/local LEOs are going to run into some very weird alliances when they enforce even more gun control laws than the tens of thousands of laws they have already been enforcing.

There is nothing illegal about shunning a government employee and his family.

Look more deeply into the bills that were passed and what they really mean. Call the heads of the sheriffs’ associations for those states and ask them if they support legislation that will remove qualified immunity from civil action for any state/county/local LEO who cooperates with federal LEOs on enforcing new (and even more egregious) federal gun control laws. That was the point I was making. It’s easy for LEOs to say “I’m pro 2nd Amendment.” Brent Blankley (and his entire department) showed you what most will actually do when it comes time.

The headline said he got 12 years. The article said he got two “concurrent” six year sentences, which means that he got a 6 year sentence. Perhaps the article meant he got consecutive sentences. Under the insane sentencing guidelines for federal crimes 12 years sounds more likely.

Obviously the suspect didn’t believe so or he would not have pled guilty to whatever charges were brought against him and he would have stood his ground and fought the charges thereby inflicting doubt and having his carges tossed.

Take your unregistered, fully automatic firearm to Tuscaloosa and tell the first LEO you see that his wife is fat and ugly.

Do you have a couple million set aside (and readily availble) to defend your rights? Do you want to sit in jail for over a year while the drama plays out?

Do you think it is possible the suspect may have plenty of “backbone and fortitude,” but just doesn’t have enough money to go up against the unlimited resources (provided by taxpayers) of the government employees who don’t like him?

I agree BUT
If the law defines possession of a semi-auto to be illegal, many of us will be criminals and if caught we will be guilt if the charges.

Would plead not guilt and fight charges to best of my ability. However that I would in fact be guilty of the “crime” of possessing arms (unregistered no less) – legal fight would probably not last all that long.

If such laws are passed, it would be past time to harden the home and negotiate mutual defense treaties with the neighbors. In some circumstances LEO jobs should NOT be safe.
