Quote of the Day - OC Law

Being a felon in possession of a firearm is not the default status. More importantly, where a state permits individuals to openly carry firearms, the exercise of this right, without more, cannot justify an investigatory detention. Permitting such a justification would eviscerate Fourth Amendment protections for lawfully armed individuals in those states.”

- U.S. v. Black (2013)

(pdf warning on the link) - Interesting case though.

Interesting quote on an interesting topic. As much as I support our gun rights and the second amendment I also tend to feel that convicted felons lost that right as a consequence and do not feel comfortable restoring it to them.
