Felons may not possess firearms. No one can sell firearms legally to felons. It’s just plain illegal all the way around.
And what sort of person does the Asheville PD arrest for “gun charges?”
So he possessed the gun illegally. He carried it concealed illegally.
It’s almost as if he just doesn’t care what the law says.
Make sure to take a look at his conviction sheet. Look how many charges he was convicted of, yet he only got a bit over a year for it all. Don’t you feel great knowing that if he steals from one car he gets prison, but if he steals from 20 cars, robbery 2-19 are free?
