    It will never pass as long as K - 12 is included.

    Rarely? I thought it was never enforced.

    Um, that would be wrong.

    U.S. v. Danks, 221 F.3d 1037 (8th Cir. 1999).

    U.S. v. Hall, --- F.Supp.2d --- (S.D.Ala. 2006) (not reported, available on Westlaw at 2006 WL 752986).

    That one hits close to home . . .

    Eleventh Circuit sits here in Atlanta, and was deciding this case about a school zone in Alabammy.

    The guy arrested had an Alabama firearms license!

    On appeal:

    Yeah, they prosecute it alright, even when you have a license! :wink:

    The second government argument was that the defendant was a convicted felon, but he had his rights restored.

    Anyway, back to the Alabama is "too relaxed" argument.

    So, yes, they prosecute it, and yes, the Eleventh Circuit will uphold it. Tell Mobster989 this is one more reason for him to get the license.

    No, there is more, I was just posting some representative cases, and, remember, these only happen when people challenge the statute. If they plead guilty . . . or it gets plea bargained . . .

    Anyway, there are lots, lots more. For example, I quoted a case from the 9th Circuit. There are lots of cases in the district courts in the 9th Circuit from Alaska to Hawaiito California to Montana upholding arrests and citing the case I quoted from their circuit.

    Well, that is what the government said, but the government lost. The government appealed. The government lost again.
