questions answered thanks !
My opinion is
They shouldn't be able to own a weapon... :huh:
Spend money on a lawyer. Those are probably all misdemeanors, but your friend would likely be happier not finding out the hard way.
Does he still have a drinking problem?
I wouldn't risk selling him a gun, personally. He may be able to swing it, checking with a lawyer is definitely worth it in this case, too much there to guess at.
I believe a second DUI, or an initial DUI that involves an accident in which there are injuries (or, death) becomes a felony in Oregon. This person can not legally purchase a gun in this state. If however, this person has been clean for say 5 years, or more and can get some folks to attest to his good character...he can petition a circuit court to waive the prohibition on him and he can then legally do so.
You can google Oregon gun laws.
The individual in question has quite a history exercising extremely poor judgement. A firearm is the last thing this individual needs.
You need new friends! (sorry if this "person" is you)
Any criminal background that includes felony conviction and / or domestic violence convictions will remove you from gun ownership eligibility.
oh H-E-L-L no, I wouldn't sell a dude like that a firearm...
Separate names with a comma.
