How come we don't hear about a lot of things or don't know about a lot of things, unless we do some digging on our own?

A lot of people get hung out to dry on a lot of federal beefs, and it doesn't usually make the six o'clock news.

In any case, I did a quick search of federal appellate court decisions in a legal data base I subscribe to and quickly found more than 50 cases apparently involving convictions for being an unlawful user of a controlled substance in possession of a gun. Those were just appeals, and there were probably more; but I didn't see any point to spending any more time on it.
