Self Defense & Guns: Careful Who Has Access to Your Firearms

Concerned about Self Defense & Guns?  Know what the law will hold you accountable for.  A retired civil servant and law-abiding gun owner with no prior criminal record was convicted because her son used her firearms in a shootout with local law enforcement. According to an article on FoxNews.com, Jeanne Tinker-Smith, a 64-year-old former accounting coordinator in the state of Washington, was found guilty in Seattle Federal Court for helping her son, Cecil, possess firearms despite his prior 2006 felony drug possession conviction. Though Cecil was killed in the 2014 standoff with police, the government still charged Ms. Tinker-Smith for aiding and abetting a felon to possess a firearm. This unusual Second Amendment case is important because it can have lasting negative effects for gun owners nationwide.  Everyone interested in Self Defense & Guns needs to pay attention.

White Collar Crime Mistrial Means Government Gets a Second Chance

The Detroit White Collar Crime Bid Rigging Trial of Bobby Ferguson ended as a mistrial today when jurors were unable to reach a verdict on any count. U.S. District Court Judge David Lawson granted the defense's motion for a mistrial after jurors deliberated for six days but could not come to a consensus on any of the charges against Ferguson, two co-defendants and three businesses that were also indicted on 24 total charges. Ferguson and his associates were charged in an illegal white collar crime scheme to obtain a $12 million housing contract from Detroit. Other charges included money laundering, mail fraud, and illegal gun possession by a felon.
