Gun Owners of America and Gun Owners Foundation have taken over the legal defense of David Olofson who was convicted of transferring an unregistered machine gun. In fact, the gun had malfunctioned, and a 1997 BATFE training manual (see toward the end of Appendix B) makes it clear that even if a gun fires a burst but then jams, it is not a machine gun but a malfunction. The brief for Olofson shows numerous errors made by the prosecution and the judge.
Documents for the case and media coverage can be viewed below. For more information on the current events of the case please go to check out the Olofson Update Page on the Gun Owners of America website at www.gunowners.org/a09032009.htm
