Hero Fireman May Be Freed Because of the McDonald Gun Case
Dixon, IL—Ted Kozak is a genuine hero. He is a retired Chicago firefighter who sits locked up today in a downstate prison.
Kozak never threatened, hurt or killed anyone. He had not been involved in any criminal activity in his entire life.
Kozak was a gun collector and at one point had two valuable collector sub-machine guns in his home safe. The guns were never involved in crimes and were certainly not stolen. They came from a now deceased Chicago cop pal of Kozak.
Contrary to belief machine guns were never banned by the federal government, but only taxed during transfer or manufacture. The politicians of State of Illinois however saw fit to ban them making mere possession a serious felony. Because they are banned in the state, the bureaucrats at the BATFE refuse to allow registration under the Firearms Act of 1934.
Since Kozak was victimized by an absolute and total ban on military firearms by Illinois that deprived him of his Second Amendment rights. Kozak’s possession of those two guns was and is constitutionally protected.
Since Kozak had an absolute right to own and carry these firearms according to both the Heller and McDonald cases there has never been a crime. Very simply the State of Illinois, the City of Chicago it’s police department and various members of the Area two Gun Teem violated ted Kozak Civil Rights.
Now Kozak can file suit in Federal Court and demand an order freeing him. Kozak may also be entitled to damages and attorney’s fees. Let’s hope Kozak’s lawyers are moving quickly to right this terrible wrong.
