I agree with Sarah's answer. You can exit your property safely by keeping the firearm unloaded and locked inside a firearms rack inside your vehicle while you are still within 1,000 feet proximity of the school. You can also carry the firearm within 1,000 feet of a public school as long as the... View More

That is an excellent question.

The Federal law that you speak of (18 U.S.C. §§922(q); 921(a)(25)) does indeed prohibit possession of a firearm that is within 1,000 feet of a public or public school, but it does NOT apply to possession of a firearm on private property that is NOT part of...

You should speak directly with an attorney about these issues. On first reading, it doesn't sound as if you would have any legal prohibition on owning or possessing a firearm, but you don't want to put yourself in a bad situation. A legal forum is no substitute for speaking directly... View More

Q: Can I sue for lack of propable cause file 73-CR-22-7977 dismissed ,gross misdemeanor theft?

The charge placed me on probation and can I sue Dicks Sporting Goods where the video was obtained?

answered on Dec 4, 2023

As you know, the sporting goods store didn't file charges or put you on probation. A case for malicious prosecution or alike isn't easy to win. Finding an attorney could be difficult. Being placed on probation may not add up to much in damages ($.)

Q: Can having a 609.72.1 disorderly conduct conviction on my record ban me from having guns federally?
Sarah Gad

answered on Jun 12, 2023

No, a person with a 609.72.1 conviction for disorderly conduct alone will not cause you to forfeit your Second Amendment rights to own a firearm. If you don't have any other convictions (especially felony convictions) you should still be eligible to have a firearm.

Q: If someone brandished a loaded magazine at me instead of their actual firearm... would they still be guilty of a felony?

I feel like they would be because "brandishing" isn't necessarily tied to a firearm as far as I could tell.

If you threaten some on with a weapon capable of causing harm, that could expose you to the possibility of facing a criminal charge. Since a magazine is not a weapon or capable of causing harm, it's difficult to imagine a scenario where a person holding a magazine could be the basis for an... View More

Can they do that? Sure. But how they handled the gun might effect whether it was contaminated for DNA testing purposes.

The results of the blood test are completely irrelevant as to whether they can charge you with possession of the syringe. They are unrelated to each other. You should get an attorney to represent you on the possession charge. It is at least a gross misdemeanor, maybe even a felony. Do not... View More

If you take the blame, you also take the consequences - including a potential prison sentence. Pleading guilty to something you didn’t do is a terrible idea. Get an attorney on board to help you.
