I have 2 DUIs' in the state of Ohio.
With the new gun law do I have to give up
my hunting guns or is this just for purchasing them? The convictions were before
the new law. Would I be able to purchase
one under a grandfather clause ?

My response:

Yeah, right. I'm gonna help you with how to buy a gun. When hell freezes over.

You can't even be a responsible drinker, and you can't even be a responsible driver. And you want us to help you get a firearm? Why, so you can get drunk, shoot someone, and use a "Twinkie" defense? You, sir, are an irresponsible dullard.

Get real. You should never own or possess a firearm again in your life. Drunkards never need guns. Drunkards never need to get behind the wheel of a car. Drunkards need to spend a lot of time in jail. Obviously, you haven't spent enough time behind bars, or you wouldn't be asking such stupid questions.

You need meat to eat? Go to the store and buy it.

You disagree? Tough !

Thank yoy for your compassion and understanding, the offences occurred 10 years ago. Sense then I have gone through AA
and been alcohol free. My driving record has been perfect also I volunteer to help others with their problems. Your ability to understand someone's else's mistakes makes me glade you were not my defense lawyer.
Sorry for asking a question so stupid. I won't bother you again.

My response:

Compassion? Understanding? Why? The best evidence around, despite your "new" facts that you failed to state in your first posting, reveals that alcoholism is a disease of the brain, or is part of the DNA structure, that never fully heals. In other words, and despite your AA meetings, your current clean record, you could, in fact, fall back on the bottle, get drunk, and shoot someone - - perhaps during one of your depressed stages. If you are predisposed to alcohol, society should keep you away from those mechanical objects that can kill; e.g., cars and guns.

No sir. My opinion does not change. You should not be driving, and you should not be a gun owner. Once those privileges have been abused, in the manner in which you abused them, society should not have to take a "chance" on you ever again. Society does not, and need not, be YOUR experiment to find out whether you can "hold it together."

In other words, kind sir, if you did it once (or more times), the odds are that sometime again in your life, you'll drink and drive again. Or you'll drink, get drunk, and shoot someone you may have been upset with.

No thank you. You lost your chance.
