    Looks like the ball was dropped on multiple levels in this one.  Laws only work if everyone does their part.

    No, laws only stop the law abiding and provide a way to punish the law breakers. They do nothing to stop crime

    But, but, but... they asked him to turn it over.  What more would you have them do!?🙄

    I'm actually not against him having the right to purchase whatever he wants... obviously restricting him from doing so had no effect on him legally doing so as it was, why not loosen those restrictions entirely?  Frankly, if the guy is considered to be enough danger to society that he can't be trusted with basic inalienable rights, why is he out amongst society in the first place?  Conversely, if he can be trusted to be out and about, why is he restricted? 

    It's time to face facts... those tasked with protecting the public cannot or will not.  They will, however, come up with 500 really good reasons why they couldn't, didn't and shouldn't.  Rest assured, NOBODY will come forward and admit stepping on their dick and allowing this guy - and countless others - to remain unfettered, unrestrained and uncontrolled.  They will continue to collect their pay, live their lives and keep doing just enough to allow that to happen.  Consequently, you are on your own, so you must.

    When our governing officials dismiss due process as mere semantics, when they exercise powers they don’t have and ignore duties they actually bear, and when we let them get away with it, we have ceased to be our own rulers.
