"Mafia Bodyguard" ban
A thought: the MAIG mayors have had a remarkable run of felony convictions. I wonder if anyone has pointed out to them that a convicted felon cannot employ armed bodyguards.
18 USC 922(g) contains the prohibitions on possession of firearms. The next subsection reads:
"(h) It shall be unlawful for any individual, who to that individual’s knowledge and while being employed for any person described in any paragraph of subsection (g) of this section, in the course of such employment—
(1) to receive, possess, or transport any firearm or ammunition in or affecting interstate or foreign commerce; or
(2) to receive any firearm or ammunition which has been shipped or transported in interstate or foreign commerce."
The Supreme Court long ago (and I think quite wrongly) read the interstate commerce nexus out of the statute, essentially saying that it covers any gun possession.
I'm betting that they get around that by claiming that "They" don't employ the detail, the city does. Akin to being under police protection as a felon while waiting to testify at a trial.
Don't you know that the restrictive laws are for THEE and not for ME?
