JURY INSTRUCTION #1 COUNT V 924 (c) Charge As I’ve indicated, you must consider each of the charges against these defendants separately. That is you must make your determination with respect to Mr. Gonzalez based on the evidence as it relates to Mr. Gonzalez. You may not consider evidence that does not relate to Mr. Gonzalez. In particular, Mr. Gonzalez is charged with one count of Carrying or Using a Firearm in Connection with a Crime of Violence. As to Mr. Gonzalez, you must unanimously find that the government has proven the following elements beyond a reasonable doubt. First; A. The defendant conspired to prevent officers of the United States from discharging their duties as charged in Count 1; or B. Conspired to interfere with federal law enforcement officers in the discharge of their duties as alleged in count 2; Second; That the government has demonstrated that an overt act by one of the conspirators in fact occurred. Third; The defendant knowingly used or carried the firearm in connection with one of those crimes of violence and that the defendant actually possessed a firearm in furtherance of one of those crimes of violence. By furtherance, I mean that it is not sufficient to simply show that Mr. Gonzalez possessed a firearm in a particular time frame. Rather, the government must prove beyond a reasonable doubt that Mr. Gonzalez’s possession of a firearm for the specific purpose of promoting the crime of violence;

Fourth; The defendant’s use of the firearm played an important role in the crime of violence. Fifth; In addition, you must unanimously decide that Mr. Gonzalez possessed an actual firearm. You may not consider as evidence any of the firearms except those that I am going to identify for you now. The only firearms that you may consider in determining whether Mr. Gonzalez committed a violation are the following; 1. A Bushmaster rifle purchased in Alstead (Exhibit 5c); 2. An M 44 rifle purchased in Newport, NH (Exhibit 5a-3); 3. A .50 caliber Serbu rifle purchased in Newport, NH (Exhibit 5d); 4. A .50 caliber Serbu rifle purchased in Newport, NH (Exhibit 17a); 5. Two (2) Ruger rifles purchased on 7/20/07 (Exhibit 5a-2); 6. A .50 caliber Serbu purchased on 7/25/07 (Exhibit 5e); 7. A Ruger rifle (Exhibit 5q). You are instructed that these are the only firearms that you may consider in determining whether Mr. Gonzalez used or possessed a firearm in furtherance of a crime of violence. You may not consider any of the other firearms in this case. In addition, your verdicts with respect to this particular crime must be unanimous. That is, all twelve of you must agree that Mr. Gonzalez used one of the identified firearms beyond a reasonable doubt. It is not sufficient that some members of the jury are convinced beyond a reasonable doubt that Mr. Gonzalez possessed for example, the firearm in Exhibit 5c, and some of you are convinced beyond a reasonable doubt that he possessed the firearms identified in Exhibit 5a-2. Rather, you must all unanimously agree to the following;

1. That Mr. Gonzalez possessed the firearm in furtherance of a crime of violence; and 2. That Mr. Gonzalez possessed one particular firearm.

JURY INSTRUCTION #2 CONSPIRACY/THEORY OF THE CASE You are instructed that in order to prove a conspiracy, the defendant must enter into an agreement to do an unlawful act. It is not unlawful to declare your opposition to a particular law or for that matter declare your support for individuals taking that position. Rather, the unlawful act in this case must be intentionally entering into an agreement to do something unlawful. In this case, resist the efforts of the United States Marshal’s Service to arrest Ed and Elaine Brown. You may consider all of the evidence in making this determination including whether or not there were any actual efforts by the U.S. Marshal’s Service to in fact effectuate the arrest of Ed and Elaine Brown. Again, the gravamen of the conspiracy is the intentional entering into an agreement to commit an unlawful act. And in order to convict Mr. Gonzalez of either the conspiracies alleged in Count I or Count II, the government must prove beyond a reasonable doubt that Mr. Gonzalez knowingly and intentionally entered into an unlawful agreement.

JURY INSTRUCTION # 3 EXPLOSIVES/DESTRUCTIVE DEVICES The defendant is not charged with the offense of using and/or carrying explosive/ destructive device in furtherance of a crime of violence. The government has agreed that the evidence it has offered with respect to those charges (this include the series of exhibits numbered 6, 7, 8 & 9 in their entirety) is not being offered against Mr. Gonzalez. Therefore you are instructed that you may not consider any of that evidence as it relates to Mr. Gonzalez. That is, as I’ve told you, you must consider the charges against each of the defendants separately and independently. When you consider the charges against Mr.

Gonzalez, you may not consider any of the evidence as it relates to the explosives/destructive devices identified again in the entire exhibits offered by the government and identified as exhibit 6 and it’s subparts, exhibit 7 and it’s subparts, exhibit 8 and it’s subparts, and exhibit 9 and it’s subparts. (See government’s response to the defendant’s Motion for a Bill of Particulars and Motion In Limine where the government stated that it would not offer that evidence against Mr. Gonzalez.)
