You can’t fix stupid. Don’t get me wrong: I agree with Kenneth Francis. The federal government has no business banning criminals who’ve served their time from purchasing a firearm. If someone’s too dangerous to own a gun, they should be behind bars. But honestly, did Mr. Francis really think that his offer to buy a gun for anyone with a state ID wouldn’t attract the attention of the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (And Really Big Fires)? If so he was wrong, as 9news.com reports . . .
“I’m getting sick and tired of all this crap that’s going on,” Kenneth Francis says on a video he uploaded in December titled “Need Help Getting a Gun?” [above]
“It’s really starting to piss me off, so if you have a felony or whatever, contact me,” he said . . .
9Wants to Know learned ATF agents conducted an undercover buy with Francis, who bought guns at two sporting goods stores in the Denver area last month.
Court records show Francis has been indicted for making a false statement to a firearms dealer and for unlawful disposition of a firearm.
Francis could face up to 10 years in prison and a $250,000 fine.
Mr. Francis does indeed face a ten year stretch in prison — and the permanent loss of his gun rights. Something tells me it’s something he wanted. Equally, how long before YouTube takes down the video?
