    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 violation
