Second Circuit - Firearms

United States v. Hilaire, 960 F.3d 61 (2d Cir. 2020). The enhancement at §2K2.1(b)(4)(B) for “an altered or obliterated serial number” applies if any single iteration of a firearm’s serial number is altered or obliterated, even if the serial number is fully legible elsewhere on the firearm. A serial number is “altered” when it is “illegible to the naked eye.”
