    Friend of Dayton shooter faces federal charges, US attorney says

    DAYTON, Ohio — Federal officials have charged a friend of the Oregon District gunman with illegally buying body armor and components for the weapon used in the deadly mass shooting on Aug. 4.

    Officials say Ethan Kollie, 24, of Kettering, admitted buying an upper receiver that was attached to Connor Betts's AR-15 and the 100-round double-drum magazine Betts used to kill nine people in the Dayton entertainment district.


    Kollie, who was arrested Friday, said he and Betts did "hard drugs" - marijuana and acid together - four or five times a week between 2014 and 2015, according to U.S. Attorney Benjamin Glassman. That drug use made it illegal for Kollie to purchase or possess a firearm or components, and Kollie is being charged for lying on federal firearm forms, Glassman said. (click link for the rest)

    Been a while since I've filled out a form, they expect you to admit illicit drug use if you haven't been busted?

    What comes after your first "infraction"? Double Secret Probation perhaps???

    From the form 4473...

    "e. Are you an unlawful user of, or addicted to, marijuana or any depressant, stimulant, narcotic drug, or any other controlled substance?
    Warning: The use or possession of marijuana remains unlawful under Federal law regardless of whether it has been legalized or
    decriminalized for medicinal or recreational purposes in the state where you reside."

    Neither of those 2 items mentioned above require filling out a 4473. Upper receiver and drum mag. Is Ohio different on those items and purchasing them?

    What's the status of marijuana in Ohio and under federal law?

    I mean, pinning the case on a drug that is getting legalized all over is a bit of a reach.

    Under federal law, MJ is under the same status as it is everywhere else. Illegal. There is no more "non-enforcement" memo.

    I don't expect an outcry about prosecuting someone with a tangential connection to a mass shooting even if it is MJ.

    ....but I am curious about the upper and mags/4473 relationship.

    I think it was because he had firearms in his house with obvious drug paraphernalia when he consented for a search of his house...then probably couldn't keep his yap shut.
