UNITED STATES, PETITIONER v. JACINTO RODRIGUEZ-MORENO?
what federal crime issues and state crime issues are involved in this case? For federal, I was thinking the kidnapping part, but for state? Is carrying firearm a state crime or federal crime? Thanks.

According to the first source link I posted below, there are both federal and state gun laws.
When I looked up that case at the second source link I posted below, I found "Respondent was charged in a New Jersey District Court with, inter alia, using and carrying a firearm in relation to Avendano's kidnaping, in violation of 18 U. S. C. §924(c)(1)."
The U.S.C. stands for United States Code which is federal law. Therefore, the weapon was a federal violationSource(s): http://www.nraila.org/gun-laws.aspx http://caselaw.lp.findlaw.com/scripts/getcase.pl?c...
