Army Vet Nathan Haddad

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.

  1. So have we now crossed the point of no return, have we realized we are not free anymore? When do we say enough? Why isn’t this nationally known?. But the real question is when are we going to stand up in force, when do we take back our freedoms. Thank God for the second amendment, its the one that let’s us protect our other rights. Please pray because we our heading down a long road. Things are only getting worse.

  2. Probably 20 years or so ago, in Southern New York State, a State Trooper stopped a 70’s muscle car for a “routine traffic stop” because he wanted to see the car. Remember always hearing and reading about routine stops/checks? Have you noticed over the past 10 to 20 years, you no longer hear of them? That’s because the trooper arrested the driver for possession of a marijuana pipe, when he saw it in the car. The driver was convicted after trial. An appeals court battle ensued, with the defense pointing out the pipe would not have been seen had the trooper not stopped the car for no reason. The State Supreme Court agreed and tossed it, stating that routine traffic stops/checks, without a violation of law committed, are ILLEGAL. Perhaps this particular stop falls under that. If, after this is tossed, this hero soldier sues under violating his civil rights and wins, the guilty parties involved, MUST pay any awards to him by themselves. Out of their own pockets by law. Thus preventing officers from repeatedly violating people’s rights with nothing to lose. No PBA. City, Village, Town, County, State, insurance or any other entity can fund the award amount, thus teaching those involved a lesson. CHARGE!!!!!

  3. I don’t believe that his being pulled over and searched was random. This administration is after our true patriots – even more so our patriotic military men.

  4. I think everyone against these unconstitutional laws should protest with an empty 30 rd clip in their hands, and I mean everyone!!

  5. This bullshit. If it wasn’t for guys like him we wouldn’t have the freedom we do now. Why punish him that’s beyond me. What really pisses me off is there arresting him an letting rapist an sex predators out of jail everyday an giving this combat hero a bad time. Complete under bullshit.
