    Court ordered firearms safety for felons?

    Hey Guys I have been contacted by a gentleman that has been court ordered to take a firearms safety class. My hesitation is that he has a felony. Have any of you come across this? Did you do the training without a firearm? would you steer clear all together. any info would be helpful. thanks in advance!

  3. Sometimes this is included in a plea agreement. I'm assuming he had so
    E kind of firearm charge and got it reduced and as I said part of the plea. Contact the DA's office to be sure though.

    Agreed. And make sure you have a copy of that court order.

    Personally, if he was convicted of a person-on-person, gun-related or other dangerous crime I would refuse the student. If it was a non-violent felony such as a DUI I would accept the student but would not let him handle a firearm.

    I don't understand why a court would issue such an order. What would the purpose be? In any case, I'd contact the court for clarification.

    Perhaps the original charge was a felony but was reduced with a plea agreement that included a class. They are usually ordered for crimes such as improper use of a firearm, brandishing, negligent discharge, felony menacing, juvenile possession of a firearm, unlawful carry, and unlawful use, sale, or possession of a firearm.

    Guy had a good lawyer. If he's telling the truth to the instructor that is.

    I would like to know what that judge was smoking or thinking by putting a gun back in the hands of a felon

    If you wind up contacting the court and doing some fact-finding on this, would you mind letting us know what you find out? It just seems like there are some facts or circumstances that haven't come to light here.
