Someone who bought an ak-47 because he has paranoid delusions regarding liberals, is also a psychotic tyrant in his own home? Shocker!

But it also highlights the fact that the about half of all firearms fatalities involve family and acquaintances shooting each other.

Shh! You’re not supposed to know that. Plus, you’re ignoring how many tyrants have been overthrown because of citizens owning firearms. By my count, it’s exactly one.

Bye Bye family, say so long to the guns, say hello to your new best friend-The prison warden.

And a week after he gets out of prison he will be armed to the teeth again.

If convicted (and the charges include felony counts), it is quite likely that the father will no longer be able to possess firearms in the future.

That probably depends on the state. He may not even lose the weapons he already has. Even if he does, he’ll just get his wife/daughter to buy new ones for him.

I think (okay fervently hope) he will be in the prohibited felon database. Just being in the same room or car with a gun would subject him to arrest.

Assholes with guns.

Because I was raised with strict in-home gun control, this just makes me shiver. I’ve been surrounded by guns all my life and HAVE NEVER HAD ONE POINTED AT ME.

God, this pisses me off.

re: #5 Skip Intro

This is Minnesota law we’re talking about.

The guy is probably chargeable for assault: assault in the first to fourth degree is considered a crime of violence. A crime of violence is a crime that automatically prohibits that person from shipping, transporting, possessing, or receiving a firearm for the remainder of the person’s lifetime (Minn. Stat. Sec. 609.165(1a)).

It’s also possible he’s charged with a domestic assault, which can result in forfeiture of the firearms:

If the court determines that the assault was of a family or household member, and that the offender owns or possesses a firearm and used it in any way during the commission of the assault, it shall order that the firearm be summarily forfeited under section 609.5316, subdivision 3.

(c) When a person is convicted of assaulting a family or household member and is determined by the court to have used a firearm in any way during commission of the assault, the court may order that the person is prohibited from possessing any type of firearm for any period longer than three years or for the remainder of the person’s life. A person who violates this paragraph is guilty of a gross misdemeanor. At the time of the conviction, the court shall inform the defendant whether and for how long the defendant is prohibited from possessing a firearm and that it is a gross misdemeanor to violate this paragraph. The failure of the court to provide this information to a defendant does not affect the applicability of the firearm possession prohibition or the gross misdemeanor penalty to that defendant.

So, yeah, I’d say the chances are quite likely that if convicted, he’d lose his guns.

 Frank says:

You see, when I was a kid I used to save up for a month, so I could get an R&B album and, the same day, the completed works of Anton Webern. Maybe that means something. Maybe that tells you something about my music. -- Excerpt from the book "Rock and Other Four Letter Words", copyright 1968.
