Another way to address the problem...
instead of paying lawyers to give you opinions, pay one to get the conviction abdicated or what ever... it can be done.
One of the biggest gun control methods in this country is making an ever increasing number of citizens 2nd class and having fewer rights.
the same average law abiding gun owner who gets all knotted up when banning a certain type of gun is proposed won't even blink an eye when 'they' talk about keeping guns out of the hands of criminals. everyone fails to recognize that most of the folks on the 'criminal list' are not criminals.
