Medical marijuana users now banned from owning or buying guns court rules


They are coming full bore at us in attempting to limit our Second Amendment rights. The wacko 9th Circuit has a new approach. I would ask them to explain the difference between alcohol and marijuana in making this determination. I wonder who is going to round up those who already have a gun?

If you have a medical marijuana card, the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals has ruled that you can’t buy a gun.

Earlier this week the U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals ruled that medical marijuana card holders do not have a 2nd amendment right to buy or own a firearm. The ruling applies to the nine Western states that fall under the court’s jurisdiction, including California, Washington, Oregon, Arizona, Nevada, and Alaska.

On Wednesday, in a 3-0 decision, the 9th Circuit agreed that Congress had reasonably concluded that marijuana and other drug use “raises the risk of irrational or unpredictable behavior with which gun use should not be associated.” The court’s ruling applied to nine Western states within the appeals court’s jurisdiction, including six that have legalized marijuana for medical or recreational purposes: California, Washington, Oregon, Arizona, Nevada, and Alaska.

Rainey plans to appeal the decision saying,  “We live in a world where having a medical marijuana card is enough to say you don’t get a gun, but if you’re on the no-fly list your constitutional right is still protected.” … “We are going to litigate this, exhaust whatever remedies we have,” Rainey said. “When this (ATF) letter was issued, it was issued as part of a deliberate attempt by the (U.S. Department of Justice) to quell a political movement.” More at Off Grid Survival

    This is just the beginning. Next it will be other medications considered “unfit”. My guess would be they’ll start targeting people taking anti-depressants. My response is: DO NOT COMPLY to anything passed by the man who calls himself Obama. Let the Civil War begin.

    This is a states rights issue. Obama should spend the time screwing himself not we the people. The Ninth Circuit Court is the most frequently overturned system in the country, Take it to the bank, this one will be crushed by a higher court as well.

      I don’t trust the 9th one iota. True, but it is a long winding road to get their rulings reversed and the Supremes don’t take all their cases. The argument that they make is absurd

        It does not have to be the Supreme Court, it can be sent to another Federal Appeals Court, and they will likely follow the law. Source: http://litigation.findlaw.com/legal-system/glossary-courts-and-the-law.html J.C. Part time lawyer.

        But JC… if another appeals court rules differently then in all likely it will go to the supremes to sort it out no? One time a paralegal 🙂

    Well the real reason is that technically marijuana use is still a federal offense, a felony. Felons can’t own firearms. So if you have a marijuana card in federal eyes you are a known felon, even if not prosecuted as such, and can’t own a firearm. And at least here in AZ that’s already been known – my former next door neighbor has a medical marijuana card and she’s the one that told me she had to formally renounce the right to keep and bear arms in order to get it.

      You’re not a felon til convicted of a felony.
      The same federal government that turns a blind eye to medical marijuana must be expected to turn a blind eye to this.

    Well…here in NY, the doctors can ask you “how you’re feeling” and “do you own a gun” all in one sentence and thanks to Obamacare and the new insurance regulations, they can and will turn you in/obligated to do so. Shaking my head…all part of the grand scheme of things to abolish the second amendment.

      Same with the V.A. but this all flows under the radar. Until it is too late.
