COMMENTARY     

Deanna (Minnesota)
4th October 2007
How can I find out why a friend of mine who pawned his gun cannot buy it back? Any helpful hints?
Brenda (southern minnesota)
5th January 2007
Does a child found guilty in juvenile court at the age of 15 for 1st degree criminal sexual conduct be banned from using a firearm for life? He has no jail sentence. Only probation up to 19 years and he case was adjudicated. So, techically he is not a felon. We have been told by his probation officer that it's a life ban, but he even thinks that it sounds incorrect. Where can we find more answers, or proof on this topic. Please help answer this question. Thank you.
