Do we agree that the intent of the law is to interfere with the rate of fire of a violent criminal?

Given the way they loosely use the word "possess" they pretty much have to consider it. Otherwise, if I saw one on the sidewalk, they are encouraging me to leave it there for someone else to take rather than pick it up to turn in or discard.
I don't get what you mean by a loose use of the term "possess." It seems fairly cut-and-dry to me that he broke the law, that the police stated that he broke the law, that the police determined that arrest was unnecessary and that the District Attorney General declined to prosecute citing de minimis non curat lex.
