EMMAUS, Pa. (AP) — A Pennsylvania man who was arrested for trying to drive into New York City with a cache of weapons says he doesn't regret his actions but calls the having guns an "oversight."

John Cramsey and two co-defendants were detained in June as they prepared to enter the Holland Tunnel with a military-style rifle, a shotgun and five handguns. Their attorneys have said the police search was illegal. All three have pleaded not guilty to weapons charges.

Cramsey posted online shortly before the arrest that he was heading to New York to "rescue" a 16-year-old girl whose friend had overdosed. His daughter had died of a heroin overdose.

He told The (Wilkes-Barre) Citizens' Voice (http://bit.ly/2dvrmNf ) that he was protecting a life and he forgot he had weapons in his truck.
