Speaking of apples to apples

A lot of TN gun buyers get caught up in the whole “arrested v. convicted” thing and that mucks up their background check. Tennessee has the highest rate of gun purchase denials in the nation and it’s mostly due to mistakes and they mostly get their guns later. A right delayed . . .

    If you move and haven’t had your driver’s license changed you will also be denied in Tennessee.

    But NOW, those who claim his legacy want the people’s RKBA not only delayed, but severely restricted denied…by the hired guns….back to the days of slavery.

    Similar problem here in Ohio with regard to Concealed Carry Permits. There’s a line on the Form that asks if you have ever been “Charged” with a Felony, not “Convicted.” And even if you had the case dropped or received a Misdemeanor Punishment, you have to dig out the Court Records and Police Reports to “Explain Yourself”.

    “Innocent until Proven Guilty?” Yeah, right. Pull the other one.

    I noticed this during my trek through the green card process; at several stages I would be asked: “Have you ever been [arrested] [charged] [convicted] of a crime?” All have potentially different answers that can trip you up, especially for someone who was briefly arrested before being immediately cleared/charges dismissed, and who therefore still think of themselves as having no record.
