OP - I do not judge you, I have been in hundreds of fights and I've been arrested several times. I usually got disorderly conduct or public intox. A
few were battery charges, but I beat conviction on those. I am not a felon. I simply have a personality that is suited to violence. Suited not prone.
I have lived my life as an anti-bully as a result of being an under-sized child.
You said that you hit someone and said two others were already in an altercation. Did you "jump in" a fight due to alcohol? Were more than just three
people fighting? Were more than two people charged (I would assume the person you helped was charged as well)?
As to punishment: Did you receive the full punishment for the crime you were charged with? Did you serve all of the time you were sentenced to?
Again, I do not judge. It just seems (based on the first few pages), that you grouped up on a victim, overpowered him, and kicked him while he was
down. That is 100% speculation and I apologize if I am way off. This would be the reason you were charged with a felony and now have a "no contact"
order against you. If that is the case then I say you should not own a firearm as you took a bully role and that is usually ingrained into a
I never fought an out numbered foe, I never continued to fight when a man was down, and I never fought if I could help it. Perhaps that is why I have
most often drank a beer with my opponent after the fight, or faced a much lesser charge. Battery only became an issue when property was damaged and/or
a person got hurt while standing up.
Did you post here because you think you should be treated differently or that all felons should be able to own a firearm? Where in your mind is the
line that a violent crime is a life long brand?
Sorry if all this has been said already. 29 pages is a lot to sift through.
