Description

Not sure if this goes best under crime, guns, or courts, but anyway, here's more wisdom from the 9th circuit court of appeals. I think this is what the NRA folks mean when they say to enforce the current laws... LOS ANGELES (Reuters) - A federal appeals court has tossed out the armed bank robbery conviction of a Los Angeles man after finding that -- while he admitted being armed and robbing the bank -- he did not mean to show his gun to a teller while demanding money. [snip] The U.S. 9th Circuit Court of Appeals said Tuesday in a written ruling that that Odom should have been convicted of unarmed bank robbery -- which carries a lesser prison term -- instead of armed robbery. The court ordered a Los Angeles federal judge to sentence Odom again.
