Rodney Class – Firearms.

Class was arrested by Capitol police when he told them that he had firearms in his illegally parked car on the Capitol grounds in DC.

Class argues that a firearm does not include the weapons he had in his car. The definition of firearm is found in 18 USC 921

(3) The term “firearm” means

(A) any weapon (including a starter gun) which will or is designed to or may readily be converted to expel a projectile by the action of an explosive;
(B) the frame or receiver of any such weapon;
(C) any firearm muffler or firearm silencer; or
(D) any destructive device. Such term does not include an antique firearm.
