OOM- Clearly you do not know the lawsConviction of a
"MISDEMEANOR domestic violence" offense is a mandatory lifetime denial
of ever buying, or possessing a gun or ammunition. It is known as the
"Lautenberg amendment".However, you are correct that any
felony conviction has the same lifetime ban.As far as gun rights
folks defending Mr. Aposhian, this is not a "gun" issue, and we really
don't know the full story yet. He did not threaten anyone with a gun.
Yes, he was legally carrying a gun, as he (and most permit holders) do whenever
they are out. He voluntarily advised the police officer and peacefully
surrendered it.His gun rights work is irrelevant to this case, just
as is his religion, or if he likes chocolate ice cream, or went to BYU, or
served a mission. This story should receive maybe a paragraph about
the alleged reckless driving of his truck, some exchange of words with his
ex-wife's new hubby, and his later arrest. All the gun stuff is tabloid
trash, at best. Or, maybe a typical leftist maneuver to smear their opponents
over personal issues to undercut their effectiveness on other issues.
Very interesting. Where are all the comments by Aposhian's fellow gun
toters trying to uphold his right to pack weaponry? Wasn't the poor boy
just being picked on by someone, thus making it necessary for him to take action
as one of the good guys?
He will face misdemeanor charges and if convicted, his weapons will be returned
to him because it's not a felony.And next time he loses his
temper?That's one of many big loopholes in our present gun laws
that needs to be changed. ANY threat of violence should be enough to bar gun
