Basically, he's not allowed to possess because of a domestic violence incident (which appears to be legit),
yet he got a .45 from someone at an occupy protest in NC,
in a state not his state of residence (which is OH),
carried it in his truck,
across multiple state lines,
without any sort of license (because he's prohibited),
no note of whether it was unloaded & in a locked case, out of reach (I'd guess no),
and fell prey to their draconian gun laws.
Then Occupy bailed him out.
So how exactly did Occupy justify paying his bail?
Now, since the pistol was apparently a gift, that would be legal, right?
Except that he's prohibited.
I admit, none of what he did harmed anyone, but he did break multiple laws.
One more example of a bunch of bad laws - they don't stop criminals, they do infringe the rights of decent people.
