    Thumbs down "Caught smoking pot? Lose your 2nd-Amendment Rights!" ~The Gubbament~

    An Army veteran in Texas is fighting for his Second Amendment rights after learning that a misdemeanor pot conviction from 1971 has disqualified him from ever owning a gun.

    Ron Kelly, who retired from the Army in 1993 after 20 years of service, was recently turned away when he tried to buy a .22-cal rifle at a Wal-Mart in Tomball, Texas, after a computerized background check flagged the 42-year-old arrest.

    So let me get this straight....

    You can smoke pot and even snort cocaine and then become The President of the United State's of America!
    But if a peasant citizen ever got caught smoking some marijuana, he/she cannot legally own a firearm?

    WTF is wrong with this country?!?

    Smoking pot, the only publicly acceptable illegal drug, which makes most users very mellow and nonviolent, can't legally own a firearm. On the other hand someone can get drunk on legal alcohol, which can make some very violent, get arrested for driving drunk, can still legally own a car as well as a gun. Both lethal weapons. Makes sense to me.

    And if you touch a bunch of kids and ruin their lives resulting in their suicide, you will get a lighter sentence than someone who committed the crime of self defense in the county of Dunn, State of Wisconsin.

    And if you are a sitting United States senator, you can run people over, smash into squad cars and get off scott free. Rest in hell Ted Kennedy.

    But in the states where pot is now legal for recreational use, does it carry the same restrictions on 2A? Maybe he should move to one of them.

    WTF is wrong with this country?!?
    Remember the promise to fundamentally transform America? Well it’s happening. From a Constitutional Republic to part of a one world totalitarian government─destined to be ruled by the Antichrist. In simple terms, it is the illegal overthrow of our form of government by those within the government. The rules of decency and fair play that you live by don’t exist with these people. The U.S. is being purposefully and methodically destroyed. For those who are Biblically ignorant, ALL are Signs of the End of this Age & this Last Generation Jesus warned us about in three different gospels (Matthew-Mark & Luke-"Signs Of The End Of The Age"). Add to this "2nd Timothy 3" (Godlessness In The Last Days) and anyone with an IQ above room temperature should be able to figure it out what is wrong with this country. The following is a hint for those who may still be confused ...

    Since 1973, we have murdered our babies in their mothers' wombs at the rate of 4,000 a day, totaling nearly 60 million, and their blood cries out for vengeance.
    We consume more than one-half of all the illegal drugs produced in the world, yet we constitute only 5% of the world's population.

    We spend $2.8 billion dollars per year on Internet pornography, which is more than half the world total of $4.9 billion.

    Our rate of cohabiting partners has increased tenfold since 1960, totaling over 12 million unmarried partners today.

    Our divorce rate is the highest of any nation in the world.

    Forty percent of our children are born to unmarried women.

    We spend over $100 billion per year on gambling.

    Our number one drug problem is alcohol, producing over 17.6 million adults who are alcoholics or who have alcohol problems.

    Our nation has become a debt junkie, leading the world in both government debt and personal debt.

    Blasphemy of God's name, His Word, and His Son has become commonplace in our media.

    We are the moral polluter of planet earth through the distribution of our immoral, violent and blasphemous television programs and movies.

    We have forsaken the nation of Israel, demanding that they surrender their heartland and divide their capital city.

    We have become a nation that calls good evil and evil good. And we are paying the price:

    Our schools have become arenas of deadly violence.

    Our prison population is increasing exponentially, from 500,000 in 1980 to over 2.5 million today. Over 7.2 million of our people are under some form of correctional supervision.

    Over 1.5 million of our women are reported victims of domestic violence each year, and it is estimated that the majority of cases are never reported.

    We are currently averaging over 3 million child abuse cases each year, involving 6 million children.

    We experience more than 12 million crimes every year, more than any other nation in the world.

    Teen violence has increased exponentially, with youngsters killing each other over tennis shoes.

    Gangs are terrorizing our cities.

    Even the nicest of our neighborhoods are no longer safe, requiring us to protect our homes with security systems and weapons.

    Our money is becoming increasingly worthless.

    Our economy is being choked to death by a pile of debt that is beyond comprehension.

    Our major corporations and labor unions are in bondage to greed.

    Our society has become deeply divided, splintered among competing groups defined by racial, religious and economic factors.

    Our families are being destroyed by an epidemic of divorce.

    Our entertainment industry consists of vulgarians amusing barbarians.

    One of our fastest growing businesses is the pagan practice of tattooing and body piercing.

    Our universities and media outlets are controlled by radical leftists who hold God in contempt.

    Our federal government has become top-heavy with bureaucrats who are insensitive to taxpayers.

    Our politicians have become more concerned with power than service.

    All levels of government have become increasingly oppressive, seeking to regulate every aspect of our lives.

    Taxation has become confiscatory in nature.

    Our legal system has been hijacked by activists who desire to impose their will on the people, regardless of what the people desire.

    Our freedom of speech is being threatened by "hate crime" legislation.

    Our forms of sports are becoming increasingly violent, reminiscent of the gladiators of ancient Rome.

    Our society has become star-stuck, more interested in celebrities than people of integrity.

    Our churches are caught up in an epidemic of apostasy as they set aside the Word of God in an effort to cozy up to the world and gain its approval.

    We are experiencing one major natural disaster after another in unprecedented volume and ferocity.

    We have become afflicted with a plague of sexual perversion, producing an army of hard core militant homosexuals.

    In summary, we are a people who have become desensitized to sin, and in the process, we have forgotten how to blush.

    Yes, the ATF wrote an open letter addressing this exact thing. Even in states where it's legal like mine, marijuana is still a schedule 1 narcotic (which is a joke). Anyone with a medical marijuana card or a recreational user is consider an unlawful user of a narcotic and is disqualified from possessing firearms.

    Here's the letter for reference:

    That's because what the states have done in legalizing marijuana is illegal. Marijuana is classified as a schedule 1 narcotic FEDERALLY. No state has the legal power to legalize its use, cultivation, or distribution. This is why the DEA has raided marijuana facilities in CA.

    Call it a joke, call it what you will, the states who have legalized it, are just putting their citizens in danger of federal trouble.
