St. Regis Mohawk militia member pleads guilty to weapons charges

April 6, 2011

[*Curious to know reader’s opinions on this one*]

Convicted felons can’t carry guns even if they’re members of an Indian nation’s militia.

Twenty-five-year-old Victor Lazore was arrested during a traffic stop on the St. Regis Mohawk Reservation last summer after police found three guns, two of them loaded, in the man’s car.

Lazore said he had the guns because he was part of the tribe’s “national security force,” which made him exempt from U.S. laws. But in 2005, he was convicted on state felony drug charges and barred from having weapons.

Lazore pleaded guilty to a federal charge of possessing weapons and will be sentenced in August.

    Regardless of his Native heritage, this individual has been found guilty of being involved in the drug trade which is harmful to all people. There has been too much violence on reservations from such activity and I think that he should not be allowed to be part of the force. It is merely an excuse to carry guns and possibly a cover for further illicit activity. Off duty soldiers do not carry their weapons and neither should Native officers.

      I agree with the first half of your comment. The second half is an assumption and a violation of the 2nd Amendment… for a non-felon, at least. The term “militia” is not simply a cover for drug runners. Every state, community, and yes, tribal authority has the right (and responsibility in the eyes of many) to organize a civil defense force, militia, warrior’s society, or whatever you want to call it. Up until recently, when Uncle Sam convinced us that everything from a screwdriver to a veteran was a ‘dangerous weapon of terror’, civil defense force’s, etc were a common community staple.

    The right to bear arms and to have a militia does not override the right of people to know that both guns and power are in the hands of those who have shown responsibility with both. This individual has not shown good judgment.

    I did the paper work for Victor, he just pussed out. Didn’t have the stamina or fortitude to take on state then feds. First of all he only had two rifles and shotgun, neither is a firearm.

    The original charges were from the state but we beat back state with our papers filed in court. We made claim against the St. Regis Mohawk Police who were messing with Victor. Some of these cops are also deputized under ICE as Federal Agents. St. Regis Mohawk Police administer the Genocide for both Fed and State of New York.

    Think people need to keep in mind first of all that its all about the Genocide. Victor’s so-called drug conviction was for marijuana, which he took plea to when still a minor.

    Here is link with Victor’s case:
