And how is that not tampering with evidence?

The same way it's not when the ATF does it...

Yeah, should have known that answer was coming. Or FBI snipers not being charged with murder when they gun down a woman holding a baby. <waves at Lon Tomohisa Horiuchi>

I'd love to see a Federal civil rights suit, with a Consent Decree imposed on her office prohibiting prosecution of people exercising 2nd Amendment rights.

Not going to happen, but still would love to leftists on the other side of a process they've abused for decades
Consent decrees happen when a leftist-run agency can't get legislation to do something they want to do (but can't, because Congress/the state legislature won't let them) gets a leftist activist group to sue them to make them do the thing they wanted to do anyway.

Not when a leftist run agency gets sued by 'right wing' groups. That they'll fight tooth and nail, and even if they lose in court, will have to be watched like hawks to make sure they grudgingly do what the court told them to do.

It's only tampering if they try to claim in court that it was functional when they found it.

Now, since the non-functional state was known before they filed the charges, they have given Mrs. McCloskey grounds for a malicious prosecution suit.

I believe the charges they actually filed require the gun to be functional, as a precondition for the charges to apply.

Looks like the couple in question will be speaking at the Republican Convention in support of Trump.

The Repubs get them, the Dems get Kasich

I'd say this is a win for the GOP

A conservative is a liberal that got mugged by reality.
