states had not submitted any records even though the law bars anyone
with multiple arrests for drug use or possession within the past five
years, or those convicted for use or possession within the last year,
including marijuana. Yet the report found states with lengthy registries
of medical pot smokers did not provide that information to the NICS
Why would the states submit lists of medical marijuana users to the NICS system as prohibited persons when they are, under state law, lawful marijuana users?
Ah, Kemosabe, now we see one of the problems with these laws, eh?
looks like something that is going to severely play hell with people
who were foolish enough to believe that their state laws would protect
them...... and incidentally, if you bought a gun while having a medical
marijuana "prescription" and answered "No" to that question on the 4473, there are those who would argue you committed a federal
crime and should be prosecuted for "lying" on that form -- including, it
appears, President Obama and Biden!
Most of you folks in those states are "hard blue", yes?
'ya gonna feel when the guy you backed for President locks your ass up
for 10 years and gives you a permanent felony record on top of it?
The government is your friend..... right?
Ps: Oh oh -- there is an actual BATFE letter on this. If you have bought a gun while in possession of a "medical marijuana"
card (or prescription, whether it comes with a card or not) you are, according to the BATFE, a federal felon and it appears they are going to try to force the states to turn over the lists of those people and may well come after you.
