I believe I am in some kind of trouble and I am in need of some assistance. About 3 weeks ago, the police confiscated my AR-15. The police entered my apartment because they believed my roommate was dealing marijuana. They confiscated my rifle for precautionary reasons only.

I believe my AR-15 is legal. I researched the rules and regulations, and searched this forum for a long time before i built my AR. My AR-15 has a collapsible M4 stock, muzzle break, and a C-product 10 round mag in a 30 round tube with a prince 50 mag lock kit. I have all the paper work as well.

When the cops inspected my rifle, they told me that it was legal and I had nothing to worry about as long as I had the paperwork. But couple days ago I received a call saying that my rifle may be illegal and that I would have to come in. Any advice would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

I dunno,

If the law told me that all was on the up and up and then all of a sudden they changed their minds and wanted you to "come in", I don't think I would show up without a lawyer present.

If you decide not to bring a lawyer with you and they start accusing you of things or start getting all hard nosed and confrontational (or too nice for that matter) remember the following phrases.

"Am I free to go"? If the answer is no then "Am I under arrest" if the answer is yes then "I will not answer any questions without a lawyer present".

Personally, I would lawyer up if I were in you shoes, especially if your roomate was actually dealing drugs, there can be some serious issues when guns+drugs are involved in a crime.

Please don't discuss anything here. Get a lawyer and let them do ALL of your talking with the police. Nothing you say to the police will help you and everything you say can hurt you.

Stop. Call a lawyer. Don't say another word. Call a lawyer.

... get better roommates.
