Aw jeez man jeez, am I gonna be forced to side with the weed people now?
Alas, it seems that I am.
A firearms expert said Missourians who get a medical marijuana card will not be able to buy a gun.
“If you are able to get it, get a doctor’s prescription, you will no longer be able to purchase firearms, not legally, not through a gun shop,” firearms instructor Don Pind said.
The federal form required with each gun purchase specifically says that using or possessing marijuana is illegal under federal law, regardless if it is OK for medicinal or recreational use in any state.
Pind said he has seen it happen to Missourians who bought pot in Colorado, where it is legal.
“They came back to Missouri, went to purchase a gun. You have to have a photo ID. When we run your name through the computer, it automatically connects you with buying marijuana in Colorado,” Pind said.
That’s because dispensaries also check identification for marijuana purchases.
This was discussed as soon as marijuana became legal. But I had no idea they were using a federal database that connected marijuana purchase to gun purchase – this is a vicious, complete violation of basic freedoms.
And a lot of conservatives would no doubt support this – I’m sure that’s who’s pushing it. It relies on a federal law that says you can’t be addicted to an addictive substance and own a gun.
According to an open letter released in 2011 by the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives, known as the ATF, federal law prohibits anyone who is an “unlawful user of or addicted to any controlled substance” from shipping, transporting, receiving or possessing firearms or ammunition.
Well – these people legalized marijuana. So it is no longer an illegal addictive substance. People using other legal narcotics are not banned from owning guns. If you buy Oxycontin or Adderall, your name doesn’t go into a database that is linked into the database at gun shops.
And what about alcoholics? What about cigarette smokers? Through legalism, these same restrictions could apply.
Note that it says “unlawful user OR addicted” – there are all kinds of people lawfully addicted to all kinds of controlled substances.
Basically, the law banning people from being addicted to things and owning guns needs to be repealed, because it doesn’t make any sense and it is clearly unconstitutional. Any restriction they put on gun ownership is a move to push for more restrictions on gun ownership, and honestly, the database itself is unconstitutional. The ban on felons owning guns – which is obviously a roundabout way to keep blacks from buying guns – is also Unconstitutional.
There is nothing in the Second Amendment that puts any restrictions at all on firearm ownership, and any infringement on that is a danger to all of us.
“Shall not be infringed” means “SHALL NOT BE INFRINGED.”
That is the law.
The Constitution didn’t stutter.
Of course the Founding Fathers never envisioned all these people being addicted to drugs, or that black people would ever be given the rights of citizens – but those are the problems that need dealt with. We cannot simply abandon the basics of the Constitution because we’ve created new horrible problems like drug addicts and legalized blacks.
They are now trying to push through “mental health” restrictions on guns – this is the most obvious trap yet. They will be able to apply that to everything. The very same Jews who push for these gun restrictions claim that hating them is a mental illness. So where do you think they’re going with that?
If a person – whether they be a felon or a mentally ill person – is not considered a safe person to own a gun, then they should not be considered a safe person to do anything else, and they should be in prison, in some kind of Concentration camp, or simply executed/euthanized.
We don’t give our freedoms over because of some weird minority group.
