If they can't be trusted with a firearm, they need to remain in jail, or take a dirt nap.
Criminalization of all sorts of activity or inactivity is out of control.
The story says this guy was a felon, due to a robbery conviction.
This may have just been a case of criminals killing criminals.
It is a crime.
OK we DO agree on common sense gun legislation, so they did they right thing.
Felons lose their rights to own a gun. He had a gun. Good Arrest.
Thanks for killing dirtbag #2, by the way.
Indeed - if you can’t be trusted with the means of self-defense, you can’t be trusted to be free among law abiding people.
Complete BS. Charge the police with kidnapping, unlawful detention, and official oppression.
“Even released felons have a right to protect themselves.
If they can’t be trusted with a firearm, they need to remain in jail, or take a dirt nap.
Didn’t see that he was a felon in possessionof a firearm. Still though...you should have a right to protect yourself against home intrusion.
If they haven’t been convicted then it doesn’t apply, but since they would now have to admit to a felony crime if they were to register now that time has run out to register, the 5th says they don’t have to.
There’s your catch 22 for the govt.
In that case, the law is an ass, and needs to be changed. God gave man the right to self defense. If a man can't be trusted to have a firearm, he needs to remain in jail.
At some point, the debt to society has to be paid, and the person returned to normal civil life. Either that, or they need to take a dirt nap, if they can't be returned to civil society.
Every man, felon or not, has the right, given by God, enumerated in the Constitution, to self defense.
Felons know they can keep blackpowder guns. Guy that does landscaping for me has an old barfight felony from the 80s. He keeps a replica Colt Peacemaker in his truck and in winter can carry a variety of blackpowder guns concealed. NFA, GCA, and FOPA does not address antique or blackpowder guns. They are NOT firearms. However, they may be “weapons” in some states.
I believe convicted felons may possess black powder weapons. A cap and ball revolver would make an adequate home defense weapon.
If I were on the jury I'd spring him.
If I had a chance to sit on this jury (naturally having lied my ass off about being impartial, etc.), I’d hold out until doomsday for acquittal if this was a righteous shoot.
“The Law You Won’t Be Told”
If they had fair and true sentences for the crimes then I would be willing to look at that. With murderers pleading guilty to lesser charges and being out in a few years or robbers, burglars and assaulters getting a slap on the wrist, I don’t think so.
