        (2) an offense under State law that would constitute a crime of
      violence under paragraph (1) if it occurred within the special
      maritime and territorial jurisdiction of the United States.
      (b) Affirmative Defense. -
        (1) In general. - It shall be an affirmative defense under this
      section that -
          (A) the defendant obtained prior written certification from
        his or her employer that the defendant's purchase, use, or

      supervisor, prior written certification is acceptable from any
      other employee of the business.
