Fed Court Denies Navy Veteran From Owning Gun Due To 1968 Misdemeanor


LINK

quote:

WASHINGTON (AP) — A federal appeals court says a Maryland veteran can’t own a gun because of a misdemeanor assault conviction more than four decades ago.

The U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia on Friday turned away an appeal from 68-year-old Navy veteran Jefferson Wayne Schrader, who sued after failing a 2008 background check.

Schrader was convicted of misdemeanor assault and battery and fined $100 after a fistfight in Annapolis, Md., in 1968.

Federal law says gun owners cannot have a state misdemeanor conviction with a possible sentence of more than two years. In 1968, Maryland did not have a maximum prison penalty for misdemeanor assault.

The appeals court agreed Schrader could have been given more than two years in prison, and so he is ineligible to own a gun.

Wow.

"The government is not going to take your guns." "We just want guns out of the wrong people's hands." "We just want to do stricter background checks."

How the hell is it that the government must know this when it is a guaranteed right found in the Bill of Rights?

It is fricking bull shite nonsense.

Are these rules additive?

Someone with two convictions, would they add both sentences together???

The screws are tightening.

In the cc classes I'm in right now we just finished discussion of the crossover of guns and medicine.

If you have ever been prescribed an anti depressent prepare to have your license app subjected to extra scrutiny today.

Tomorrow prepare to have it denied.

this is why I disagree with the mental health avenue...mental health diagnosis is very fluid, depending on which MD you are talking to...you think this administration hasn't thought this through...keep believing they have our best interest at heart, freedoms will be lost...forever!

Which will result in fewer people seeking the treatment they need.

This is so stupid because I can go out and buy a gun a street. It's pretty easy to do. Yet government is too busy with this type of of bull shite to someone like this Navy Vet while having a revolving door for criminals that have been arrested multiple times and always have guns.

Ya most likely. However, it is odd, and perhaps another angle, to suggest that as a Navy veteran, our country trusted him with at least weapon training, and therefore, this would appear to be sillier considering he was entrusted with weapons for national defense, but cannot be trusted to protect himself.

Obama admitted to doing lots of drugs and doing such is something that is more than a misdemeanor. How in the hell can such a man be president and make such decisions about war if a Navy Vet isn't allowed to purchase a gun due to a misdemeanor from 1968?
Let's not forget that he is pushing for gun control yet has associations and friendships with domestic terrorists that killed other Americans.

There is federal law that provides a procedure for felons to apply to the BATF to have their firearms rights restored. It is Title 18 United States Code section 925(c).

BUT there is a catch-22. Congress has defunded the section of the BATF that processes these applications. Since there is no money to do them, they don't do them.

Here is a little article where it was explained to a convicted congressman:
