That's a shocker! You are a felon?? Who would have guessed? But no love for the homeboys?? Nah, they ought to burn, right? Pfffffffft
It's very easy to be a felon. Driving down the highway one night, late into the morning, and doing 90 mph in a 55 mph zone, cop pulls me over. Says
to me, Sir, you're over the limit by more that 30 mph, in this state that's a felony. You're using your car as a weapon. I didn't know this.
Haden't a clue. The only two people on the highway thiat night were me and the cop. I was mining my own business, listening to music, and cruzin,
man. Not bothering anyone, since the road was empty as far as the eye could see. Except, this cop hiding in the bushes. Didn't spot hum till too
late. He wasn't even on the road, he was parked off the road.; So, basically, I had the road all to myself. Yet, according to him, I'm using my car
as a weapon. Really. What, like some deer was about to jump the highway or something? Anyway, for a few months I was a felon. Until I explained to the
judge that the cop had deliberately parked his car just after the speed limit sign changed from 65 mph to 55 mph, knowing full well that drivers would
often miss the first sign that changed the limits, and so I thought I was still in the 65 mph zone. Judge accepted my explanation, since I wasn't
trying to get off scot free, and reduced the claim to 25 mph over the limit. I escaped the "felony" designation by 5 mph. Whew! What a relief, I can
still buy a gun.
Lesson learned. If you want to be able to buy guns in the US, make sure never to travel more that 29 mph over the limit in any state.
It's that easy to become a felon. The only difference between me and that felon today is "5 mph."
