Zinov was arrested and charged with assault by mean of dangerous weapon, illegal possession of a firearm and illegal possession of ammunition.Hmmm. Apparently Massachusetts does require a license for guns and ammunition, and he just neglected to get one.
Zinov was out on bail for several cases including another assault, where he is accused of trying to stab a police officer.Wait, you mean he's under indictment for multiple felonies? But... but... then it would be illegal for him to have a gun! I mean, illegaller than it already was because he didn't have a permit in the state with some of the most draconian gun laws in the nation. The only solution would be to make it double plus secret illegal for criminals to have guns, then those criminals would obey the law.
