Lil' Flip

Pleads Not Guilty

After Assault Rifle Arrest

2/21/2013 12:40 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0220-lil-flip-getty
Lil' Flip is continuing his fight against allegations he illegally drove with an assault rifle in his car -- and marijuana too -- pleading not guilty yesterday to both possession charges.

We broke the story ... Flip was pulled over for speeding on Xmas in Louisiana ... and was placed under arrest when police claim they found weed in his car ... along with an AR-15 rifle.

Following his arrest, Flip was charged with possession of a firearm, possession of a schedule 1 narcotic (weed), and speeding. He pled not guilty yesterday to all three counts.

No surprise ... Flip had previously told us he planned to fight the charges -- insisting his rifle is 100% legal. He even showed us his concealed handgun license to prove it. As for the alleged blunts ... Flip says they were Black & Mild cigars ... NOT filled with weed.

A pre-trial date has been set for April.

We reached out to Flip for comment -- so far, no word back.

People such as law makers should know how to abide by the laws they create or follow past laws .
The 2nd amendment and gun laws will always be a debate .. we need stricter enforcement of existing gun control laws not new laws .
1) Persons under indictment for, or convicted of, any crime punishable by imprisonment for a term exceeding on year.
2) Persons who are unlawful users of, or addicted to, any controlled substance Unlawful users of certain drugs
3) Persons who have been declared by a court as mental defectives or have been committed to a mental institution. If the state follow this law Mindy McCready wouldn't have had gun in her possession .
4) Persons subject to certain types of restraining orders.
5) Persons who have been convicted of a misdemeanor crime of domestic violence (including separation for disputed divorce) In 2009, the Supreme Court held that the Act’s prohibition extends to anyone convicted of any crime involving “physical force or the threatened use of a deadly weapon” against a person with whom the perpetrator had a domestic relationship--even if the crime is just plain old “assault and battery”
persons under eighteen years of age are prohibited from possessing handguns.Person under age 21 are prohibited from buying ammo except 22 rounds .
And in some states ankle bracelets and DUI'S
After reading this how many people on TMZ should not own a gun

LISA    

Lil Flip was charged with third-offense possession of marijuana and possession of a firearm in the presence of a controlled dangerous substance. His passenger, Sanders, was charged with illegal possession of a firearm by a convicted felon. How many guns were there?


I'm wondering why Lil Flip consented to the vehicle search if he had anything to hide – especially since this would make it the third time he was charged with possession of marijuana (which means heavier penalties if convicted)? Did he not know he had a right to refuse to allow his car to be searched for other reasons?
