Reader, here is one way the FED can have control over your 2nd Amendment rights. As medical marijuana gains in State sponsorship, the FED will not revise it's provisions, therefore marijuana is still classified as a Schedule 1 drug.
As we have learned marijuana has healing medical properties. The DEA still, will not acknowledge this fact.
Here is the court case Wilson vs Lynch that seals the deal for the FED against gun ownership by those who hold medical marijuana cards.
This author has laid out a few section of the case below for quick reading. Click the link above for the full proceeding.
"Turning to federal firearms provisions, under 18 U.S.C. § 922(g)(3) no person “who is an unlawful user of or addicted to any controlled substance” may “possess or receive any firearm or ammunition.” In addition, it is unlawful for “any person to sell or otherwise dispose of any firearm or ammunition to any person knowing or having reasonable cause to believe that such person is an unlawful user of or addicted to any controlled substance.” Id. § 922(d)(3).
"The ATF has also developed Form 4473, which confirms eligibility for gun ownership under § 922. Prospective purchasers of firearms fill out Form 4473 when they seek to buy a firearm. Form 4473 includes Question 11.e., which asks “Are you an unlawful user of, or addicted to, marijuana or any depressant, stimulant, narcotic drug, or any other controlled substance?”
On September 21, 2011, the ATF issued an “Open Letter to All Federal Firearms Licensees” that stated the following:
Any person who uses or is addicted to marijuana, regardless of whether his or her State has passed legislation authorizing marijuana use for medicinal purposes, is an unlawful user of or addicted to a controlled substance, and is prohibited by Federal law from possessing firearms or ammunition. Such persons should answer “yes” to question 11.e. on ATF Form 4473 . . . and you may not transfer firearms or ammunition to them. Further, if you are aware that the potential transferee is in possession of a card authorizing the possession and use of marijuana under State law, then you have “reasonable cause to believe” that the person is an unlawful user of a controlled substance. As such, you may not transfer firearms or ammunition to the person, even if the person answered “no” to question 11.e. on ATF Form 4473.
Scenario from Wilson vs Lynch
"It was against this regulatory and statutory context that appellant Wilson, on May 12, 2011, was issued a marijuana registry card by the State of Nevada. A few months later, on October 4, 2011, Wilson sought to purchase a firearm from Custom Firearms & Gunsmithing in the small community of Moundhouse, Nevada. As Wilson began to fill out Form 4473, the owner of the store, Frederick Hauser, stopped her from completing Question 11.e, which asked whether Wilson was an unlawful user of a controlled substance. Hauser explained that, because (as Hauser already knew) Wilson held a marijuana registry card, Wilson was deemed an unlawful user of a controlled substance and therefore someone to whom he could not sell a firearm without jeopardizing his federal firearms license. Wilson handed Hauser Form 4473 with Question 11.e. left blank. Hauser, who had received the ATF Open Letter three days earlier, nonetheless refused to sell her a firearm. Wilson alleges that Hauser’s refusal to sell her a firearm was a direct consequence of Hauser’s receipt of the Open Letter".
Author has a question. If a gun owner becomes a registered medical marijuana card holder, is said gun owner forced to give up his/her guns ? Is there a question such as the one on Form 4473 #11.e on the medical application that asks for gun ownership? I'll bet not. I would hope the doctor would tell a person this fact upon filing. Probably not though as we know the medical community, knowingly or unknowingly, are agents of the corrupt FED.
At any rate, there is now a demographic of those who have willingly given up their 2nd amendment in order to become healthy.
There's always something, isn't there?
