Ok so to start this thread off let me say my mom divorced my dad remaried divorced and remarried (yes i know
) However my stepdad now is really cool. He supports everything i do and helps any way possible.Now heres the bad part when he was around 26ish he was arrested for selling cocaine. Not his brightest idea he was in jail for around 6 or 7 years. He is out of jail now and has been for well over a decade.He met my mom 3 years ago.He has completely changed in a good way. Now he is a peaceful caring person and i would hae never suspected him to be a person that was convicted. He is always giving me good advice and tells me how he was stupid when he was young and is always making sure i do good in school and behave.Im 14 btw and he says hes cool with me getting into shooting, But heres the problem he was convicted of what i believe was a class x felony and when he was going to be released the judge said he either serves an extra 10 years or he cn get out now but he is not allowed to own a firearm and said he cant do a few other things. So he said hell get out then instead of serving extra time(remember this was over a decade ago) so he said before i go and buy a gun make sure i can legally keep it in the house. That being said what do you guys think? Can i own a firearm and keep it in the house?
Also i personally think certain people deserve a second chance, He is very responsible now and i honestly think him not being able to own a gun himself is very unconstitutional.I say that because i would love to have him come hunting or shooting with me.Also i find it extremely unconstitutional for my rights to be restricted just because he is in the same house, besides i would keep the gun locked up unless im going to the range.
