be blocked forever from arms ownership?" That's a question to start an argument with, the two sides being
"That's part of the punishment, and they're not trustworthy"
"If they've served their time, and cleaned up their act, why?"
Question brought up by this:
The man who shot and killed an armed robbery suspect at a Knoxville
convenience store may avoid charges under Tennessee law -- despite the fact he was a felon with a gun.
Issac Jamal Scruggs, 42, of
Knoxville, was at a Breadbox convenience store early Monday on Asheville
Highway when 18-year-old Tamon Stapleton held the clerk at gunpoint.
a friend of the clerk's, shot and killed Stapleton. A previous felony
conviction would ban Scruggs from carrying the gun he used, but
Tennessee law says the fact he protected someone else means the gun
charge doesn't matter.
Impression given is that the guy has cleaned-up his life. And here, stopped an armed robber.
It's a messy question.
This makes it sound like Mushroom Head was a nutcase looking for SOMEWHERE to hurt people. And finally settled on that church.
“A black friend of the white man accused of murdering nine people at a
Charleston church says the suspect told him a week prior to the killings
that he planned to shoot up a local college campus,” foxnews.com reports.
“Christon Scriven, [above] a drinking buddy of Dylann Roof, told The
Associated Press that he thought Roof’s statements were just drunken
bluster. However, Scriven said that he was concerned enough that he and
another friend, Joey Meek, went out to take his .45-caliber gun, hiding
it in an air-conditioning vent of a mobile home until they all sobered
up.” And then gave it back, later.
