arrested for attempting to hop a fence at the University of Texas at El Paso

Not a Beto supporter but that's pretty minor compared to the evils many of our leaders do.

In my town, the local politically-related DWI felon was charged with gun possession at the time of his arrest.
No guns for him!

BETO: He is the generational epitome of ONDCP's failed "This Is Your Brain On Drugs" propaganda commercials.

I find it amazing that persons with such checkered backgrounds (Beto, Gillibrand) feel compelled to run for office - then again, they're either being well paid or well pressured to engage the public eye, whether or not truly serious about political success, or merely distractions, pawns for sacrifice, tools for the use of their masters.

If he truly hates white privilege he should demand to be a felon. Or is that only for show?

You know the answer to that.
He means to point out the white privilege in others while totally embracing the benefits of rich privilege.

Actually its quite easy to buy a firearm in Texas without ever having a back ground check..........but I won't argue the point. I'd just suggest you visit the Canton Trade fair one month and walk about the back lot for a bit. You'll see lots of trunk lids being opened and closed as transactions are being negotiated.

You don't have to be convicted of felony DWI to have a DWI bar you from owning a firearm.

If alcohol abuse is documented they can deny your 4473.

not a fan of beto but you can get a dui and not get a felony in a good deal of states, here in Montana i think you need to have 3 or 4 duis to get a felony ,and juvenile records are almost always sealed and do not impact fire arms ownership

Arizona was the strictest state for DUIs and has the longest minimum jail term (10 days) for first-time offenders, a vehicle impound and a 90-day minimum jail time for a second offense. A DUI is an automatic felony with a third offense and an ignition interlock device is mandatory after one DUI conviction. Arizona was followed by Alaska, Connecticut, West Virginia, Kansas, Nebraska, Utah, Virginia as the strictest states on the list.
seems 3 is the magic felony number for most states

The law bars felons from possessing firearms and from getting gun permits and gun eligibility certificates. But, under the law, a person whose felony record is erased is no longer considered a felon. Thus, he is not disqualified from owning, carrying, possessing, buying, selling, or transferring firearms, in the absence of some other disqualifying condition. Nonetheless, the official authorized to issue gun permits must determine that an applicant wants firearms for a lawful use and is a suitable person to receive a permit. If the official knows of the conviction, he can deny the permit on suitability grounds. An applicant may appeal the denial to the Board of Firearms Permit Examiners, and he may appeal the board's decision to Superior Court. ERASED RECORDS GENERALLY
this is just for CT i think but even ca dosent hold juvie reccords against people in adult lives as far as guns go

Did he have privilege when he was 26 at the time of the accident? He was a relative nobody at that point. Looking at the reports, It looks like he got a standard first time offense deal which is well pretty standard in a first time non fatal accident so it does not seem out of line

O’Rourke’s driver’s license was temporarily suspended and, under a pretrial diversion program that lasted about seven months, the misdemeanor drunken driving charges were dismissed after O’Rourke took traffic safety and alcohol abuse classes and agreed to stay sober and out of trouble while in the program.

Can he own a gun? Id say yes based on the fact that the DUI was a misdemeanor not a felony and was dismissed anyway
