An inmate escapes prison and is hitchhiking, a state trooper pulls up to investigate the hitchhiker and while this is occurring a motorist who has a beef with the trooper rolls up and opens on the trooper with a firearm and the trooper goes down. the motorist then realizes his witness and gets out of the vehicle to get a better shot at the hitchhiker. The hitchhiker then snags the trooper's pistol and shoots their assailant dead with the trooper's piece saving both their lives.
In this scenario, the state is not going to charge the escaped convict with stealing the troopers firearm, nor is the state going to charge the inmate with possessing the troopers firearm, nor is the state going to charge the inmate with shooting the assailant. The only way a felon in possession of a firearm charge is going to occur is in the case where the felon then leaves the scene of this shooting with the firearm in possession with the intent of further fugitive endeavors.
As usual, straight to an illogical conclusion.

It is indeed a felony to use a firearm during the commission of a crime. The act of escape is the commission of a crime. Even in your scenario, the escaped prisoner may be charged.

So you support the use of firearms during the commission of crimes?

You're crazy, lazy and criminal.

Nope, no charges, the escaped prisoner would have affirmative defenses against those charges. Your illogical conclusion is that the escaped inmate was supposed to let the attacker of the police officer get in a coup de gras shot on the cop and then finish up by killing the witness.

I think the problem was cold pancakes and sugar water instead of syrup.

The inmate shouldn’t be present at all. Further the inmate is prohibited from carrying a firearm on two possible reasons. If locked up only for misdemeanor charges then it may be legal for him to be in possession of a weapon. But, then there’s while in a commission of a crime. If a felon, then he could be charged with possession of a firearm by a felon.

Often law isn’t moral, is that what you’re trying to achieve?

Don’t you think the charges would be decided by a district attorney? Not you nor I.

Antigun crusader = eternal cynic

An antigun crusader has a very poor sense of justice.

The Pigs here at Topix love him (eternal cynic) for his relentless defense of gun control. If Paul Helmke were dead I would claim he's Helmke-reincarnate.

eteranl cynic is the dumbest, stupidest poster here (and he's either a leo or a pig collaborator).

When I read a eternal cynic post (automatically) I always smell sewage. Happens everytime. He reminds me the DuPage County (Illinois) police, including the Westmont, Illinois police, can force County sewage treatment plant employees to pump sewage into my basement.

Really? Try reading the law. You’re almost a nutty as Tory.

Positive actions do not negate an existing law. If you believe that you’re a fool.

Affirmative defense is not the same as being charged. He would likely still be charged and the jury would decide on the fact of if there was an affirmative defense.
