Brady Bill and b.b. guns

(1/2) > >>

Just learned that some of us may be breaking the law . According to the Brady Bill , anyone ever convicted of a felony or misdemeanor that carries a sentence of 1 yr. Or any domestic violence , cannot possess a b.b. gun . Or mental defect/in patients psyc hospital .  How easy is it for them to take away your second amendment rights . So , if your 50 and committed any crime punishable by a year or more in prison while a young man ...oops no b.b.gun for you . Your in violation of federal law . Even if you've been a good boy for the last 30 yrs .

This sounds very political.  Are you sure you want to go there?

You might link where you got your info from. The Brady Bill pertains to firearms only and background checks.  Not sure how that works with states that might classify BB guns as firearms. Since the Brady Bill is federal I don't think a states classification has anything to do with it.

For the sake of intelligent discourse, I found this link that includes some more detailed information about airguns and Federal Law, specifically the "Brady Bill":

--- Quote ---Federal BB Gun Laws

Federal law restricts who can own, possess, or sell a gun. Some of these federal laws extend to BB guns.

If you have been convicted of certain crimes, or fall under any of the special categories or situations listed below, you face potential criminal penalty under the Brady Act. This federal law bars personal and business ownership, use, and possession of a BB gun if you:

    1. Were convicted of a crime punishable by being in prison for more than one year;
    2. Are a fugitive from justice;
    3. Are addicted to, or illegally use, any controlled substance;
    4. Have been ruled mental defective by a court, or are committed to a mental institution;
    5. Are an illegal alien living in the United States unlawfully;
    6. Received a dishonorable discharge from the U.S. Armed Forces;
    7. Renounced your U.S. citizenship, if you are a U.S. citizen;
    8. Are subject to a court restraining order that involves your "intimate partner", your partner's child, or children; or
    9. Were convicted of domestic violence in any court of a misdemeanor.

If you fall into any of the above situations or categories, check with a local attorney about whether you can own, buy, or use a BB gun.

Why do you even bring this up. It's not political and annoying to see people jumping with these type of post which in turn can cause an otherwise legitimate post to go astray real quick.
Lets just stick with the facts please. If someone has a concern this lets try and figure out if it is a real concern.
