Federal agents raided rapper Lil Wayne’s plane at Miami Opa Locka Airport, finding a gold-plated gun and some ammo, according to TMZ. Born Dwayne Carter, the popular performer now faces 10 years in prison because of a 2009 felony conviction, which meant he lost his Second Amendment protections forever.
We used to say that a court sentence was how a man pays his debt to society. Now, a man can never pay that debt. So are we no longer the land of second chances? “Right Angle” panel member Scott Ott says, “Call me a 2nd Amendment purist, but I don’t think it should be illegal to own a gun. If I’m not in the penitentiary and I own a gun, that should not be illegal. I’m going to go even further on this. Not only do I not feel we should refer to somebody who has paid their debt to society as a felon, or even as a former felon, I don’t think it should be on a record that anybody can access.”
Ott continues his thoughts with fellow panel members Bill Whittle and Stephen Green on this installment of “Right Angle” on the Bill Whittle Channel.
