(B) Crimes of Moral Turpitude. Certain firearms offenses may be found to involve moral turpitude, such as assault with a firearm. Other offenses, such as possession by an “alien,” should not be considered CMTs, as they are merely possessory or regulatory offenses. See, generally, Chapter 20, supra.
 See, e.g., Matter of Montenegro, 20 I. & N. Dec. 603 (BIA 1992) (assault with a firearm); Matter of R, 5 I. & N. Dec. 612 (BIA 1954) (willfully and maliciously damaging or attempting to damage property by means of explosives).
 See, e.g., Matter of Rainford, 20 I. & N. Dec. 598 (BIA 1992).
