Domestic violence conviction = no firearms = new job field.
I’d check his immigration status, his behavior is suspiciously like a misbehaved illegal from across the southern border. I’d say I’d be positive he was if he was driving drunk.
If so, they will just have to let him go so he can kill someone else. Or maybe three or four this time. After all, it’s only fair. /SARC
