He is going through a very hard and dark place in his life. His oldest son died of cancer about 3 years ago. His wife left about 2 years ago.

In 3 years he has had 3 DWIs. The last one he got 6 months in jail. He asked if i could find a gun for him because he lives in the hood.

I told him that i do not think he can own a gun.

Did i tell him right or was i wrong. Either way i am not gettinglooking
him a gun. Right now his head is not screwed on right.

I was wondering because i hate to tell someone something and i am wrong.

...not sure of the legalities in your state. However, of greater concern, should be his mental outlook. With all that's happened in his life, do you want to potentially be the one who provides him the means for "a way out"?

Straw purchase ?

"Most people fancy themselves innocent of those crimes of which they cannot be convicted." Seneca

"Hope has two children: anger, and courage." Augustine, Confessions

Der Verzagten aber und Ungläubigen und Greulichen und Totschläger und Hurer und Zauberer und Abgöttischen und aller Lügner, deren Teil wird sein in dem Pfuhl, der mit Feuer und Schwefel brennt; das ist der andere Tod.

Some states may only take 2...not 100? Sure.

quote:
1. A 1965 amendment to the federal Firearms Act of 1938 allows felons who want to own a gun the ability to apply for "relief from the disability of not being able to possess a gun." If the felon can convince the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, and Firearms that the circumstances surrounding the crime and subsequent felony conviction were such that the felon should not be considered a public safety risk, then the felon may be granted the right to legal gun ownership.

I was just wondering if i told him right. I hate to tell someone something that is wrong.

that's tough. can't say where I'd be in that situation. I do know this. without faith, hope can seem so far away it can't be reached.

his way, the darkness never ends.




there's only one hope for this world. 3:16



Even IF there is no God, what if we just lived our lives as if there were?

If the people who think about changing the world would think about changing themselves, they might accomplish both.

Straw purchase, felony DUI, mental capacity not right. You answered the question yourself Dave. Just be there for him with good advice. I know you have a good heart, as you and I talk off the forums. Just be a friend right now. Good luck and I hope your buddy finds some peace and solace. Oak
