The wounded survivor could have been charged because of a death that occurred during the commission of a felony but I guess The DA thought he had paid a big enough price

He still should have been charged and prosecuted and if convicted could have been given a suspended sentence. They should have found out who provided them with the gun and charged them as well. But as usual they let these criminals off with a slap on the wrist and then people call for more gun laws that only affect the law abiding gun owners.

Could the reason he was arrested been as simple as he was black and shot a white guy?

How about a felon in possession of a firearm which is another felony charge at both state and federal levels

Has anyone considered he may have a good reason for shooting the guy?

And any DA who does a Plea bargain in a case involving a felon in possession of a firearm should be disbarred. Get serious about enforcing existing laws and watch gun crime drop

Do you remember the father and son that road raged a man and pulled a gun on him in wilkes. The man was force to defend him self by killing the father and wounding the son. Why did law enforcement and the DA not investigate where they got the firearm from and charge someone for it.

While it is true this is not required to sell a long gun it doesn't change the fact that this sort of thing could be stopped if the laws were enforce.


Interesting. Can you find the NC statute on this? I couldn't find it. I'm curious what the punishment is for selling a handgun to someone that doesn't have a permit.

The ATF and local LEOs should track every firearm used in a crime and charge any one they can tie to selling or giving to a felon. Believe it or not most guns have serial numbers and can be tracked with a little effort ENFORCE the Existing laws Even if the gun was stolen and no report was filed the previous owner is still legally responsible and can be charged

No but it is against the law to sell or give a firearm to a convicted felon so private sellers should be tracked back form the sale of any weapon used by a felon and charged. IT is AGAINST the DANG law so let the ATF get off their arses and back track these PRIVATE sales and charge some people. Just because background check required in a variate doesn't mean its legal to provide a felon e-with a firearm. And in the mean time they can arrest some of these people who fail background checks for lying on the form they fill out and sign. Plainly states on the form that giving false information is a crime and could result in jail or fines

Hit him with the max time allowed with no parole but offer to cut his time by 1/3 if he helps to convict the person who provided him with the firearm and then that person should get the max time allowed for giving a felon a firearm.

Great theory, but there's no law saying that a private seller has to do a>

He could have bought the gun on here, or at the cattle sale or a flea market, and the seller did nothing wrong.

Or he could have just bought the gun before he was convicted.

Once again you aren't telling the whole truth this is taken from your own link.

If the firearm being transferred is a handgun, the seller (regardless of whether or not he or she is a firearms dealer) must verify that the purchaser holds either a permit to purchase a handgun or a concealed weapons permit. Both of these permits are issued by the local sheriff after a background check.2

While it is true this is not required to sell a long gun it doesn't change the fact that this sort of thing could be stopped if the laws were enforce.

Its a shame if the feds and state enforced Current gun laws to the max the effect would be immediate. Including giving or selling a felon a fire arm. But moaning about a imaginary gun show loop hole is more the politicians style

And yet all we hear from the left is common sense gun control. How about some common sense law enforcement and prosecution.

This man was a felon who had a gun and shot someone he should be charged with attempted murder, and having a firearm. Hit him with the max time allowed with no parole but offer to cut his time by 1/3 if he helps to convict the person who provided him with the firearm and then that person should get the max time allowed for giving a felon a firearm.
