    Default Buddy works for DHS in DC and found with lo0se rounds in backpack Advice for him?

    My buddy is one of those people that if he didn't have bad luck he wouldn't have luck at all. He works in Washington, D.C. He has a top secret clearance, works for DHS and is in a lot of trouble. He had 6 rds of 357 mag in one of the pockets of his backpack which was picked up by the x-ray scanner he has to pass through going to work. He doesn't know how long they were there, but were not picked up until yesterday. This seems to be a layered kind of problem. He has to worry about prosecution by D,C., then some kind of punishment by DHS, and lastly some kind of administrative action by his contracting company. Since this just happened he is beyond stressing out, and I'm wondering if there is anything that could be suggested that he do to protect himself as much as possible.

    This was an incredibly dumb thing to do, and he is fully cooperating with the authorities. Unfortunately, he will probably lose his job and clearance. if he doesn't I will be surprised. Any suggestion? All I can think of is for him to call the NRA and try to get an attorney recommendation.

    Does he own a .357 and are they his? Or is it possible that someone planted them in his backpack?

    He owns a 357 and he knows on one planted them. He's honest to a fault and in cooperating he admitted they were his.

    Have him declare the David Gregory defense, he had no intent to break any law.

    and a trip to the house of pain.

    Since these ass hats can't catch actual bad guys they make their own, in a perfect world the screener would of said "ASSHOLE" go to your car and clean you bag and bring me a coffee or your in deep shit. In this day and age they will slam honest mistakes at every opportunity.

    His defense would be "I don't have an X-ray machine or metal detector at home, so I had no idea they were there."

    Plus, he didn't have a gun with him, but if local statutes forbid any ammo, that's not a good defense.
