Felon Gun Story Correction

Counsel for Lee Booth asked for a retraction of the Pajamas Media article, Felons Can't Own Guns. So How Did This Guy Acquire Three Gun Companies?

Here are the corrections.

I'm certainly glad that's straightened out.

So the next question is, what justification is there for granting an exemption in this case, if an exemption has indeed been granted? This story is going to be unfolding for a long time, I expect.

"what justification is there for granting an exemption in this case"

You really think there's no justification in granting a guy a pardon for a non-violent crime (if it were a violent crime the penalty wouldn't have been as lenient) he's already done the assigned time for 30 years ago if he's not committed any crimes since?
Or in fact that the entire law that bans people from owning and using weapons who at some point whenever distant in their past have been in contact with the law is constitutional, let alone moral?

The entire rule that people can't own a gun who've once had a felony conviction should be scrapped, or given a strict and short (say 5 years or the duration of the sentence, whichever is shorter) time limit.
And in case the license is required for business purposes it should be automatically granted, and an excemption to the restriction with it.

AS SOMEONE WHO IS DEALING WITH THIS NOW I agree with JTW.I was told to plead gelty to not paying child suport even though I had custdy at the time and my ex was violating a cort order not to live the state.I was told that after probation that it would be taking off my recored and all my rights woeld be restored.Now I am having to go to the peroal board to ask for a parden from the govener to get my rights back and he just happens to be the fomer atterny genarel for the state.

I hope William Mosher gets as good an attorney as Lee Franklin Booth has.

I was going to point out back when the person was photographed holding the guns, I remember Mark Furman talking about hunting in Idaho. He said he can't own a gun as a felon (remember he got a Perjury conviction out of the OJ trial), but he can hunt is someone else owns the gun.

Point taken regarding your email message. However I continue to believe that things will change if Mosher addresses his issue with both CY and PM.

You can believe whatever you like. I happen to be quite familiar with the relevant law, and know that there is nothing published on CY that is actionable in regards to Mosher or any of the other officers that gunned down Erik Scott.
