An FFL holder who had apparently been robbed some time in the past was driving along when a vehicle came up suddenly from behind him and was tailgating. He says he feared the was being set up for a carjacking or highway robbery, so he pulled a pistol. The vehicle behind him backed off. Happy ending? Not quite. The vehicle behind him didn't contain some would-be carjackers. It was an impatient soccer mom and her family. And she was the one who called 911, not the gun dealer. When the gun dealer was put in trial for aggravated assault (a 20-year felony) the trial judge would not allow him to testify about how he previously had been robbed, thus causing him to be extra-nervous about his personal safety. Not relevant, since there was no evidence that the past robber had any connection to this woman. When the gun dealer wanted to point out that he had an FFL dealer's license, and he wasn't just some redneck with a gun in his pickup, the State opposed it, saying that this was not relevant, and was an impermissible "good character" sort of evidence. The trial judge reserved a ruling on this issue, and the defendant's attorney never asked the questions about him having a license. During closing arguments in the trial, the defense attorney at one point started talking about the Second Amendment and people's right to bear arms. The State objected, again saying the 2A was not relevant in this case, and the judge agreed, instructing the defense attorney only to argue theories that are relevant to the evidence and a recognized legal defense. After he was convicted, he appealed. The Court of Appeals of Georgia upheld his conviction. See Adams v. State, docket # A06A2447, decided Nov. 27, 2006. ..
