Another Military Vet Stripped of Right to Own a Gun

 Army Veteran Ron Kelly, who retired from the Army in 1993 after 20 years of service, went into his local Walmart to buy a .22-cal rifle. Despite 20 years of service, where he was trusted to carry much more powerful weapons in service of his country, he was denied the right to buy his own.

Kelly, who was busted for a misdemeanor pot violation when he was in high school, has been stripped of his Second Amendment rights for life because of something he did as a kid back in 1971.

The military vet had completely forgot about the issue, seeing that it happened back in high school and he only received a year of probation, until to his surprise he was barred from owning a firearm due to his past trouble.

According to the Houston Chronicle, The FBI states that anyone who was convicted of  a misdemeanor in which they could spend more than two years behind bars, will be banned form owning a gun.

So even though Ron Kelly was never sentenced to a day in jail – which was for a nonviolent crime to begin with –  Kelly in now unable to exercise his 2nd amendment right to own a firearm.
