It is a crime for a person who has been convicted of a felony to possess
or own a firearm or ammunition. Many would think that this is a wise
law, as we certainly do not want people who are dangerous criminals
running around with guns. The problem that I have, is that we have redefined “felony” to mean some pretty silly things.
We can now add “taking a leak on the Alamo” to that list of things that will mean you cannot vote or possess a firearm or ammunition for the remainder of your life. That is because a judge has ordered a 23-year-old El Paso man to spend 18 months in a state jail facility for urinating on the Alamo.
