E. Jean Carroll’s unregistered gun seized by New York Cops

Possessing a firearm without registration in New York is considered a felony, punishable by a maximum sentence of four years.


New York police confiscated an unregistered gun belonging to E. Jean Carroll after she admitted to owning an unlicensed firearm during her testimony in her defamation lawsuit against former President Donald Trump.  

According to NBC News, the chief of police in Warwick, New York, visited Carroll's home on February 15 to “discuss some open issues,” including her admission about the unregistered handgun. Carroll had stated on the second day of the civil trial that she possessed an unlicensed “high standard revolver, [with] nine chambers” in her home at her bedside. 

Following the visit by law enforcement, reporting officer John Rader offered to secure the weapon at the police station for safekeeping.  

Carroll and a member of her security team subsequently handed over the firearm to law enforcement the following day, with the understanding that it would be held by the police until Carroll obtained a pistol license in the state of New York. 

Possessing a firearm without registration in New York is considered a felony, punishable by a maximum sentence of four years.  

The incident regarding Carroll's unlicensed firearm arose during the cross-examination of her testimony in January when Trump's attorney questioned her about the gun. However, presiding Judge Lewis Kaplan intervened, signaling his disapproval of the line of questioning. 

“Don’t even start,” the judge said when Trump’s attorney started to question Carroll about the firearm. 

Carroll's lawsuit against former President Trump alleged that he had raped her, despite her inability to recall many details about the alleged incident. In the defamation case, a 9-panel jury found Trump liable for sexual assault and defamation, resulting in an order for him to pay $83 million in damages. 

The former President has denied the claims made by Carroll, securing a $91.6 million bond while he appeals the verdict.

I’m sure she will be prosecuted to the full extent of the law. I wonder if that crime is a wobbler that can be treated as a misdemeanor.
