  •  ^^^ FALSE - repetition of false info is HRable (13+ / 0-)

    This is not a matter of disagreement. Just quote the law, give the poster an opportunity to acknowledge and correct their misstatement. Do not engage further until they do.

    Anyone who persists after they have been informed of the law is in violation of community standards. It only takes 2 HRs to hide these false claims.

    As you'll see on the ATF link there are 8 categories of persons who are prohibited from buying/selling guns before there is any criminal conviction.

    This is Norm's pattern of spreading false information about gun law. He's been doing this for awhile.

    One of his often repeated refrains is "innocent until proven guilty." That's a progressive value, to be sure, but federal law about who is prohibited from owning guns is well established law. Every section of 922(g) has been challenged in court many times. The courts have upheld 922(g) and other parts of federal gun law hundreds of times.

    There are two cases scheduled for oral arguments this month and we will be covering them in the Firearms Law and Policy group.
