Re: Does the PSP enforce Federal law?
Whether they can or not, they can notify the feds of the violations. Infrequently, local DA's somehow get federal charges filed in firearms cases. There was an article about it in the York Paper about 2 years ago. What the procedure is, I don't know. I often wondered about why more federal charges are not brought when state WCO's find eagle feathers etc., The state law often seems like a slap on the wrist when compared to the federal law penalties.
The poster is right about the marijuana thing. Imagine a rifle hunter seems tipsy, gets run in and marijuana shows up in a BAC. Automatic federal violation of the federal firearms act and possible life long loss of firearms rights.
This information in the hands of an anti gun executive could get wild. Compare the lists of drug convictions with hunter's licenses and those who did not buy an archery stamp and would there be probable cause to get search warrants. Given the drug busts here in this county, there could be a booming business in searches. I figure the day is coming maybe ten years maybe 20.
