    Firearms & Marijuana Do Not Go Together.

    Reminder: Even Where Itís Legal, Marijuana Use Eliminates Your Gun Rights
    February 27, 2021

    During the visit, Holmes led the investigators to a safe that contained a semi-automatic handgun. Holmes told the agents that his other 20 guns had been stolen along with his motherís sport-utility vehicle when he left the vehicle running with the guns in the back seat, according to the prosecutor. He and his mother had reported those thefts to East Hartford police three days earlier.
    The agents told Holmes that his illegal use of marijuana made it illegal for him to possess guns, and they took possession of the semi-automatic handgun. Holmes filled out paperwork consenting to the ďforfeitureĒ of the gun to the ATF.
    He pleaded guilty in October 2019 to possession of a firearm by an illegal user of a controlled substance.
    The two sides agreed at that time that federal sentencing guidelines called for Holmes to receive a sentence in the range of 10 to 16 months in prison, although a federal probation officer later computed a guideline range of 18 to 24 monthsí imprisonment.

    You state "Even Where It's Legal....", but the quoted language talked about his "illegal use". While marijuana is still illegal federally, when and how does that affect gun rights? Isn't a conviction required? Are the feds prosecuting people for marijuana use?

    Voting is the responsibility of a citizen, even if voting may not necessarily be obligatory. To not vote seems to me to be an abrogation of one's responsibility as a citizen, regardless of one's politics.

    Federal law says it is "illegal" regardless what any state or local law says. If the "feds" want to push it just remember "do the crime then do the time". ......................................... drill sgt.

    First off I do not smoke pot or condone smoking pot nor do I think it should be leagl to do so . That said if they put you in prison for Just having a gun in the safe and not on your person while under the influence they were looking really hard for an excuse to put you away for something they can't prove. Sounds more like a plea .

    Holy sh!t. This is a great sign. I know a great place for a sign just like this. Might just put it up tomorrow. If the sign doesn't work... may as well buy stock in Febreze.

    I can hear it now: "Man, sheeit dat ain't me bruh. I dunt smoke no weed man" as ole saggy pants waddles out duh door.
