BLP recently covered how a disabled veteran, Jon Wolff, was arrested for open carrying a BB gun.
Now, his legal representative Jonathon Moseley is dialing up the pressure with a complaint that he filed on April 11 in the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Virginia. This complaint was filed in response to Wolff’s arrest for “merely holding a B.B. gun down by his leg, upside down with the trigger hanging down near the ground.” The veteran held the long-gun shaped B.B. along the front tip so that it was hanging down to the group. He then proceeded to lean the gun against the fence.
However, when he yelled at the trespassers in the neighboring parking lot, a woman yelled “He’s got a gun!” The woman was accompanied by a man and went off with him towards a road construction project.
They reported this incident to their supervisor, who later called the City of Fredericksburg Police Department. Wolff would later be arrested for “assault by intimidation” for holding a gun with other people around and for “brandishing” the gun just for holding it down next to his leg. Wolff received two counts for each offense because there were two “victims”. The veteran only asked the trespassers what they were doing in a parking lot across his own backyard.
On March 21, the complaining witnesses admitted at the trial that Wolff never pointed the gun at anyone or waved it. The mere act of having a gun around other people is now a crime in Virginia, provided that someone claims that it made them feel afraid.
On January 3, Wolff heard noise in the private parking lot of the College Heights swimming pool which he knew was closed down for the season.
The veteran was aware that this spot was often frequented by minors who held illegal parties there. On numerous occasions, Wolff saw blue police lights flashing through his living room.
Naturally, when Wolff heard the noise, he grabbed his B.B. gun and proceeded to go outside. He brought the B.B. gun because he was not sure what he was about to get himself into. Because of this, he would later be arrested, prosecuted, and convicted of 30 days in jail for each of two counts of “brandishing.” His jail time was suspended on the grounds of good behavior.
According to Moseley, “The Fredericksburg prosecutor argued that Wolff was guilty of frightening people with his B.B. gun because he grabbed the B.B. gun on the way out his back door for self-protection.” The prosecutor spun that into guilt of assault by intimidation.
In a span of less than 3 weeks, Moseley has been able to raise $8,000 for Wolff’s GoFundMe campaign.
However, Moseley plans on adding plaintiffs to this case.
Numerous individuals are going to “open carry” and therefore want the courts to clarify if they’re allowed to “open carry” or not.

Iran’s Vice-President Catches a Case of the Coronavirus
On Thursday, Iran’s health minister revealed that coronavirus cases spiked by 106 during the last 24 hours.
Iran’s death toll due to the outbreak is higher than any country with the exception of China, the country where the epidemic started.
The outbreak caused Iranian leaders to cancel Friday prayers in Tehran. Health ministry spokesman Kianush Jahanpur announced there were additional plans to place restrictions on sacred Islamic sites but the plan still “needs the approval of the president before being carried out”.
On state TV, Jahanpur urged Iranians to avoid “unnecessary trips inside the country”.
State news agency IRNA announced that Chinese citizens have been prohibited from entering the country. Other countries such as the U.S, Russia, South Korea and Australia have placed similar restrictions in an effort to halt the spread of coronavirus.
According to Michael Ryan, the World Health Organization’s Executive Director of Emergencies Programme, Iran’s 10 percent mortality rate, which is five times higher than China, is likely due to milder cases of the virus not being detected.
