Federal law governs firearm background checks, and the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF) enforces these regulations. Attempted theft, even if it was reduced to a gross misdemeanor on your plea deal paperwork, can potentially impact your ability to purchase a firearm.... View More

If you were originally charged with felony theft, but that charge was reduced to a non-felony conviction, then that charge will not bar you from legally possessing or purchasing a firearm. The judgement of conviction will be the controlling document.

It's important to understand the legal context when considering whether you can sue a president for criminal neglect. In many countries, a sitting president often enjoys immunity from criminal prosecution while in office. This means they cannot typically be sued or prosecuted for actions taken... View More

Transcripts only stay available online for a certain period of time. If you did not owe any taxes for a particular year it is not unusual for them to be removed. January is the time of year that the IRS updates its systems so that may be why they disappeared. There is no guarantee that this is... View More

And always fully disclose if you are asked about prior arrests/convictions of certain types when you apply for a firearm permit or... View More

If formal charges were filed in 2009, then no. The warrant stays forever, most of the time. I've had people with warrants out for seven or eight years. They left the state, and then they apply for a special job or a professional license, so it finally comes up. So the charge has to be dealt... View More

Q: I'd like to sue Barack Obama for giving 150 billion dollars of american tax payer dollars to Iran, without consent.

Since there are close to 250-300 million american workers that would bring my share to around 4.2 million dollars. I'd like to be compensated, since this was done without consent. Is there a lawyer who will take my case?

No. If there had been I'm sure it would have been done. There are a number of reasons way too long for me to give you.

Consider a similar thought--can someone sue the Congress for giving over a trillion dollars in tax breaks to wealthy people? No, that's what they do.
