Gun laws and personal records

Recommended Posts

Bambito

Last weekend my wife and I spent the weekend at my in-laws cabin. Her dad, I and her brother got on the topic of gun laws. Her brother was charged 4 years ago with terristic threats is a gross misdemeanor from what it states on his record. Something to do with his gf's ex bf. Anyways this past spring he went in to buy a new shotgun and was denied. I told him I am pretty sure he is screwed when it comes to buying a guns. He said that he can still be in possession of a firearm cause he was not charged with a felony. I read up on this a little bit last night and it seems there could be a waiting period of 7 years before he can buy again? Is this true or completely false? He said he can appeal the denial of selling him a firearm.. I have never heard of that though? Thoughts?

"charged" or "tried and convicted"?

609.713 TERRORISTIC THREATS.

Subdivision 1.Threaten violence; intent to terrorize. Whoever threatens, directly or indirectly, to commit any crime of violence with purpose to terrorize another or to cause evacuation of a building, place of assembly, vehicle or facility of public transportation or otherwise to cause serious public inconvenience, or in a reckless disregard of the risk of causing such terror or inconvenience may be sentenced to imprisonment for not more than five years or to payment of a fine of not more than $10,000, or both. As used in this subdivision, "crime of violence" has the meaning given "violent crime" in section 609.1095, subdivision 1, paragraph (d).

So he can still be in possession of a firearm but he cant purchase? That doesn't make sense.

Firearms laws are far too complex to be resolved here! He needs to seek competent legal advice.

I agree Dog, either a lawyer or a call to the Federal gov. I do not know if I would even bother with a licensed dealer, I would want the facts if I could own or use one.

If you could not possess one and were caught, I highly doubt that any judge would here the facts that a member on HSO said I was legal to possess a weapon.

Not worth a few years in jail.

Crimes of domestic violence are an automatic disqualifier in purchasing a firearm, and are asked about on the 4473 form when a gun purchase is made. I am guessing that the gross misdemeanor charge is a domestic violence crime, so that guy is screwed in trying to buy a gun. Don't take my word for it off of a internet forum, but do research it, and/or get legal advice.

There is a section in Minn. Stat. §609.713 terroristic threats that is a gross misdemeanor violation.

Subd. 3.Display replica of firearm.

(a) Whoever displays, exhibits, brandishes, or otherwise employs a replica firearm or a BB gun in a threatening manner, may be sentenced to imprisonment for not more than one year and one day or to payment of a fine of not more than $3,000, or both, if, in doing so, the person either:

(1) causes or attempts to cause terror in another person; or

(2) acts in reckless disregard of the risk of causing terror in another person.

That conviction does NOT result in a loss of privileges. However a felony conviction for terroristic threats does result in a loss of privileges.

It is possible that the person was charged under Subd. 1 as quoted above but sentenced at a gross misdemeanor level. Minn. Stat. §624.712 Subd. 5. classifies a felony level conviction for terroristic threats as a crime of violence and so the person looses their privilege to obtain or possess any firearm.

If the person was charged and convicted under Subd.3 they should not be prohibited. If that was the case then it is likely an error to prevent the purchase and the person could appeal.

If a prohibited person possesses a firearm under Minnesota Law it is a gross misdemeanor ( Minn. Stat. §624.713 Subd. 1(j)(1)) , but under federal law it is a felony and I believe the penalty is up to 10 years in prison.

Now that you mention that he did say he was charged under subdivision 1. So what does that mean for him?

You would have to read the sentencing document to get the answer. I would not at all be surprised if he was convicted of the felony level terroristic threats. I don't know if the sentencing for the crime is enough to make the difference. Obviously the NICS check considered it a felony. I guess I don't have enough facts to know the answer.

      Those are some nice fat bass😉. Avon area is fun, lots of good water out there. Spunk chain has nice green bass and a bonus walleye now and then.  . Pelican and Pine are both worth a try a couple times a yr as well, have done very goid on Pine when its been too windy to get on the bigger lakes. You mentioned a kayak? St Johns lakes are awsome, though I haven't been out there in couple yrs

      Headed up tomorrow for Memorial weekend.  Any tips on walleye patterns?  Deep?  Shallow?  Still chubs/rainbows?  Not looking for spots or secrets, just a little info to get started.   Smallies move up yet with the water temp rising?

      The Minnesota Department of Natural Resources urges property owners in the southern part of the state to wait one month before removing evergreens that are showing stress after a harsh winter and late spring. Some will recover.  DNR forest health specialists have received reports of spruce, white cedar, and white pine that appeared to die suddenly in Fillmore, Houston, Freeborn, Goodhue, and Hennepin counties. In some cases, up to 90 percent of needles in the upper canopy of spruce trees have fallen off, while the bottom branches remained green. “In most instances, this extensive needle loss is the result of severe winter drying,” said Brian Schwingle, DNR forest health specialist. “Warm, windy days with low humidity in late April caused evergreen needles to lose moisture, and the frozen soil in the root zone prevented water from moving back into the needles to replace that moisture.” Recently planted evergreens and smaller trees were hardest hit. Schwingle recommends that people keep an eye on their evergreens and wait to see if they regain their canopy with new growth. Trees with 50 percent or more of their needle canopy remaining could recover. For more information, see hort.uwex.edu/articles/winter-burn. Discuss below - to view set the hook here.

      I don't follow things closely, so I just found out about this last night. The Lake Vermilion Fire Brigade is hosting a pig roast fundraiser on Saturday from 4-7pm to support its operations. There are live and silent auctions along with stuff for the kids. Check it out:   http://www.lakevermilionfirebrigade.com/a-squealin-good-time-for-all-ages/ We are going to go.

      I’ve heard phenomenal things about the rivers, willhave to pull the kayak out and get on it. Thank you everyone for the feedback. I’ve checked out Clearwater, I really enjoyed it but lately it seems to tough for my 14ft boat to be stable out there on a windy day.  I’ve had success in Avon lately.
