If You Carry a Gun in America

    A very good article on carrying a gun. While parts of it may seem "unfair" it's the law.

    As a criminal defense attorney, I have been representing people charged with gun related criminal offenses for well over twenty years. During that time, I have been lead counsel in several hundred gun related criminal offenses including 1st-degree murder, drive-by shootings, aggravated assault, disorderly conduct, unlawful discharge and many more serious felony level offenses. I have represented people in countless misconduct with weapons and prohibited possessor criminal charges as well. In short, I have represented more people than I could possibly count in serious gun related criminal cases in both state and federal courts. There are few ways a person can get into big trouble more quickly than to misuse a firearm.

    The decision to keep and bear arms is a serious one. It is also a decision that necessarily comes with great responsibility. All gun owners are required to know and follow the law. As you have heard many times, ignorance of the law is no excuse. Especially in cases involving firearms, you would be well served to study the law, and to think about its application before carrying, or even owning, a firearm.

    Yes, AND Please understand that Many of the Statutes, to similar in nature, ARE STATE Statutes, and many have fine Differences and Nuances, that change from State to State.... KNOW the Statutes both Federal, for your State, and any LOCAL Statutes, that may Apply....

    An excellent primmer for those who do or seek to carry a firearm. And, a must read for everyone. His advise does not just apply to guns, either...

    Kind of scares the shit out of you thinking that your freedom hangs with what the jury thinks, or lack thereof.
    Just look at my signature number 3.

    The thought of being tried by a jury of 12 people not smart enough to get out of jury duty makes me stay out of trouble...

    Additionally....know the Statutes and regulations as they currently apply....legislation and regulations are subject to change....keeping abreast of changes as they occur will help in being compliant with laws as they are, rather than as they used to be.

    If I'm being tried by 12, it means that I'm not being carried by 6. Still, Tempstar hit the nail on the head.
