Sounds like this guy has received a few slaps on the hand for previous felonies.
This may be another catch and release because all things gun related in Utah
are good things.
I'm waiting for the anti-gun folk to tell me that they need more gun
control to keep this guy from having a gun. Irrespective of how many laws he
already broke by having that gun. I'm pretty sure he didn't acquire
"Rufino has a substantial criminal background, including multiple felony
convictions, restricting his ability to legally possess firearms," No! This is not the fault of the NRA!But the result of corrupt
political representatives who don't do enough to protect the people of
I guess it was an accident to that he had a gun when I am sure he knew he
shouldn't have had one being a felon.
He should have never had a gun in the first place because he is legally
prohibited from having one! Which exacerbates the issue even more! Secondly, as is usual, in the case where known criminals carry illegally,
innocent people were injured!Lastly, lock him up and keep him there
instead of letting him out! We need stricter laws for repeat offenders!!!
The judge and the lawyer(s) that got him out of jail should be charged.
Besides being a criminal, this man is lacking in good common sense. He needs to
be tried, and hopefully convicted so he can be immured where he won't hurt
others, or himself. I am just glad that the innocent shoppers do not have
Convincing argument "one old man".As good as most of the other
guns kill people arguments I suppose.
Well, let’s see. He’s a felon walking around with a gun, obviously
concealed. How many laws did he break all at once? Go to jail, go
directly to jail. Do not pass go. Do no collect $200.
Nonsense, it was a bad guy with a gun doing bad and illegal things.Was it
an accident that he broke the law and got a gun?Was it an accident that he
was carrying a concealed weapon without a permit?""Rufino
has a substantial criminal background, including multiple felony convictions,
restricting his ability to legally possess firearms," the report states.Vainuku said many of Cervantez's felony convictions are from out of
state."Felon in possession of a firearm can also be prosecuted
by the feds and if guilty he can get a longer sentence in Club Fed which also
gets paid for by the feds, not Utah taxpayers. Who will get this case moved to
the U.S. Attorney's office and will they accept it?Tell us
more about his rap sheet.
There was a teacher in Utah who "accidentally" had her gun go off at
school. There have been a few tragic incidents here in Utah where a gun was
left out laying around the house and a kid accidentally shot his sibling. Both instances the people involved got off with a slap on the wrist. If
Rufino Cervantes says his gun accidentally went off then we have to believe him
(investigation pending) based on gun accidents in the past here in Utah. With
the amount of guns flooding the streets accidents will happen once in a while.
Pretty good trick to hit two people by accident. And I am sure running away
