This is one of the things wrong with the law. ANYONE should be lawfully able to defend their lives with a gun.
Sounds like three losers, but the two chasing certainly were losers.

The white guy looks a bit simple if you ask me. Not that he shouldn’t be able to defend himself, of course.
Netherton was charged with felony possession of a firearm.
Not much info.
Everybody has the right to defend their lives, even ex-cons.
yes they do.I wasn’t saying he didn’t have the right to defend himself.I was pointing out (according to the article) that he wasn’t arrested for defending himself with a gun.
Essentially, he was. He was arrested for being in POSSESSION of a firearm. The 1968 GCA made it illegal to use a gun protect your life or your loved ones. I am surprised that it has never been challenged in court.

So true; if they shouldn’t have a gun, they shouldn’t be out of jail.
