    Read of a local case with nearly the same circumstances. Seems that during that time a lot of errors were made judically speaking. I believe that the veteran here had to actually work with the FBI to resolve his issue.

    Nice to see that someone at the FBI is at least on his side and trying to help. I hope he gets his gun.

    Yeah....I was somewhat shocked at that fact myself. But surprisingly from the report they went to work immediately on the issue. Don't know if there was any political pressure or what not, but it is refreshing to hear.

    I read the article and I have to say this whole fiasco stinks to high heaven. He was 17 at the time. For all intents and purposes the case was 'thrown out' of court. He was not convicted. For cryin' out loud he's right you know. The ATF's vaunted NCIS background check system sounds a tad broken to me too. Then he serves 20 years in the Infantry driving tanks and firing guns that would make me pee my pants excited.

    I hope with the help of that attorney he gets his full rights restored. To my way of thinking this is just one more classic example of our 'govmint' broken beyond repair. It gives me all the more reason more ammo if you will to routinely face east and raise my right hand making the familiar salute and shouting a familiar phrase as I show my disdain for a system I no longer have faith in.

    And after this one small episode in one man's life Obummer really expects the nation to accept O-Care as a viable answer to health care insurance?? Gimme a freakin' break.

    If he was fingerprinted when he was arrested he will have an "FBI hit". Anyone in that situation needs to contact the FBI expungement unit.

    This is the problem with ALL of the databases on us, there is always a chance of an error and it is very hard to get that error corrected. Every year one in five people have something put into their credit reports that is incorrect, and if you want to know a real nightmare, try getting your credit report fixed. Any time you get a large organization that is reliant on computers and the data in them, you are bound to have trouble.

    Many decades ago, I gave VIP tours of the 9-1-1 center as part of my job. I entered my social security in LEDS the first couple of times to show how the records came up. Then I noticed that the system had hits on me showing I was being investigated. I stopped entering my social security number.

    Accusations can mean just as much as proven convictions, in some circumstances. NICS and the anti-gunner bent of the whole thing is one of them.

    Though, that said, there are some states that have a "Must be of good moral character" element in their CHL application processes. Am not aware of any such thing for purchases. Hopefully he'll be able to shove this 40yr old unproven accusation into the hole where it belongs.

    Guy's he was arrested. He was fingerprinted before the charges were dropped. He has an FBI record. It is a very simple matter to get the record removed since he was not convicted.

    Just look at all the trouble this has and will be to him. Think of the money he will have to pay a lawyer. System should be that if and when it's shown reasonably that the whole thing was a mess, and he gets his gun, he should be reimbursed by somebody in govt. whoever gave him this trouble along with his getting his gun. Hope he gets his gun. My salute to him for his service to our country.

    He does not need to pay a lawyer. He can take care of it himself.
