Supreme Court Unanimously Rules in Favor of Felon’s Right to Sell Their Firearms

Tony Henderson was an agent with the United States Border Patrol. He is a gun owner and maintained his own personal firearms collection. He also liked to smoke marijuana and the practice ran afoul of federal law. A decade ago, he was arrested and charged with felony possession of the controlled substance. Upon release from bail, he was ordered to surrender his firearm collection to authorities. By 2006, his case was adjudicated with him accepting a felony guilty plea. Federal law bars him from owning firearms. As a result, he sought to sell the collection either to a friend or to his wife. The government objected and the matter went to court. The lower court sided with the feds stating that allowing Henderson to direct the sale of the firearms was tantamount to “constructive possession” of them. Henderson appealed the ruling.

On Wednesday, the Supreme Court ruled unanimously 9-0 to overturn the lower court ruling. Even the liberal justices, who are not pro-second amendment, concluded the lower court exceeded their authority and infringed upon Henderson’s property rights. The court acknowledged that Henderson cannot take possession of the firearm collection given his felony status. However, they affirmed that he has the right to direct the sale of the weapons to a third party dealer or individual. At the same time, whoever takes ownership of the firearms must reasonably assure authorities that the original gun owner will not have access to them. Mikal Watts understands this school of thinking well.

Berkeley Officials Are Optimistic In Their Battle against Soda Industry

Forget about the battle in the State Legislature. In California, the most disputed fight this fall is Berkeley’s elected officials versus the soft drink industry.

Although the soft drink industry has continuously triumphed against its opponents, Berkeley remained standing for the anti-sugar movement. At one point, the battle seems to be shared by both parties. A two-cent soda tax initiative is running across the ballot in San Francisco bay area. However, with a two thirds vote requirement, the San Francisco initiative is struggling to pass due to the counter-attacks of the beverage industry. The industry contends that increasing the tax to 2 cents will sharply increase the beverage’s cost, which in turn, hurts the lo-income families.

Nevertheless, the supporters of the tax initiative in San Francisco have definitely not given up. One of the backers of this effort and a member of board of supervisors, Scott Wiener, said that the 2 cent tax increase can help reduce the soft drink consumption by 10 percent as per studies show.

Mr. Wiener further said that the soft drink industry is a multibillion dollar business and was just waltzing around a community that is trying to fix health issues like BioPharma CEO, Mark Ahn who is reputable for his healthy lifestyle advocacy.

He also said that he knows that they have a huge fight in their hands and that he believes that they have a strong chance to pass the initiative.
