I imagine you are proper, if you could offer a plausible explanation for plugging your gun (storage, block moisture, upkeep, past misfire, and so on) it would be a pretty huge load of proof to prove that the gun operator understood of the plan to steal the gun and was basically enthusiastic by the drive to booby entice it earlier mentioned all other plausible explanations.
Own anecdote: I used to a shoot a large amount and acquired a bad box of Blazer Gold (or whichever CCI’s more cost-effective brass ammo was termed), and a single round was way undercharged ensuing in a caught bullet. I was blessed more than enough that it was fully clear, and I stopped making use of that ammo and gun right until I could kind it all out. It was days afterwards that I basically had time to strip it down, generate out the trapped bullet with a dowel and mallet, confirm my gun was mechanically audio (ie, not a broken firing pin or mischambering, etc).
In idea, it can be thoroughly doable that my negative spherical could have been the previous a person I fired, I did not even know the barrel was plugged. Dude steals my gun, places ammo in and it explodes. Even if he explained to me “I am gonna steal that gun from you” and their had been witnesses, how can you affirmatively establish that the plugged barrel was intentional on my element?
