Show of Support for Paul Wojdan

We will be gathering before the hearing a Tom’s Diner at 11 Main Street, Lockport NY 14094 between 7:30 and 8:00, and proceeding across the canal to the court house from there.

A Town of Lockport man who was a passenger during a traffic stop was charged when he turned over a loaded semiautomatic handgun in a holster from the glove compartment to an officer on Saturday. The gun was legal, but police say the 10 rounds of 9 mm ammunition found in the magazine were not, because they violated the state law that states it is unlawful for any person to knowingly possess a magazine with more than seven rounds. Exemptions are authorized only for firing ranges or Olympic, collegiate or other sanctioned shooting competitions. Active-duty police officers are also exempt.

Paul A. Wojdan, 26, of Parkwood Drive, was charged with unlawful possession of an ammunition-feeding device and posted $250 bail.

Lockport Police Chief Lawrence M. Eggert said this is the first time city police have made an arrest involving the New York SAFE Act and admitted they were getting compared to Nazis on social media.

“One of the comments said, ‘When are you going to start loading people into cattle cars?’” said Eggert.

According to his attorney Jim Tresmond, Paul will be facing a hearing Wednesday November 6th at 9:30 in Lockport City Court, at 1 Locks Plaza, Lockport NY 14094. We are asking all civic minded citizens to come to Lockport Wednesday morning to support Paul Wojdan. The court building will be open at 9:00. Dress appropriately, act civilly, and show due respect to the court, but come and show your support.

RSVP HERE TOO, ON FACEBOOK.

    I suspect there will be MORE support on the 11th. There were many in tree stands and such, having the day off, taking advantage of the holiday. Start recruiting more support NOW!

    I was there on the 6th, for the initial hearing. It was standing room only in the courtroom. Good turnout. Niagara county SCOPE made a good showing. Many Repeal the (UN) SAFE Act sign were there too. If anyone needs a sign, let me know. Available for a $10.00 donation to SCOPE. So the defense asked for a dismissal, the judge said they will consider it, come back on the 27th.
