  • Why can't mentally ill people purchase guns?

    I was hospitalized tried to kill myself about 5 years ago when I was 18 and I just found out that I'm banned from buying guns forever, even when I need one in the future for self protection when I move out. I have depression but people with depression need to protect themselves from intruders too!

  • I want to press charges, but I don't know if there's enough evidence.?

    Best answer: There is no such thing as pressing charges except in fiction. You are alleging criminal offences. Therefore you need to tell the police. They will investigate (obviously they'll want to question him as well) and think about if there is enough evidence to stand up in court. If they decide there is, then... show more
    Best answer: There is no such thing as pressing charges except in fiction.

    You are alleging criminal offences. Therefore you need to tell the police. They will investigate (obviously they'll want to question him as well) and think about if there is enough evidence to stand up in court. If they decide there is, then (assuming you're in the US) they will pass the information to the District Attorney. It is the DA who decides whether to bring charges - that's not up to you.

    Prosecutions are brought by the DA in the name of the state - something criminal is always treated as a wrong against the state itself. So it's not You v Abuser, it's The State of X v Abuser, or The People of X v Abuser. Which has the advantage for you that affording it is not an issue. If the DA decides to take this forward, he or she takes over and does it all for you. You don't need a lawyer. The DA's office provides one to handle the case and they're paid for out of taxes. It will cost you not a bean and all you have to do is be a witness if it gets to trial.

    That's the difference between civil and criminal law. Civil law is when you have a dispute with someone and then you'll want a lawyer to sue them for compensation, your money back or whatever. But criminal law is about whether someone should be punished for doing the wrong thing and the state will always take that on. All the state needs from you is your information. And your bestie's - two witnesses are always better than one!

    So that's the way forward. Both of you go to the police and tell them all about it. They'll take it from there and it costs you nothing except your time. They'll decide if it's worth taking further with the DA, knowing that the DA doesn't want to waste time on a case that they will probably lose. The DA knows far better than any of us whether it's worth taking this to court - it's their job to know! Either way, you'll find out if it was worth telling the police, for free. You don't need to know if there is enough evidence - that decision gets made for you by the guys with experience.

    If you're not in the US, it's still the same - it's just that the public prosecutor won't be called the DA, they'll be called something else. In England, for example, the Crown Prosecution Service does this. (And the case will be called R v Abuser. R = Regina = the Queen!)

    BTW "female" is an adjective, not a noun. You are a woman.

    Hello I am 18 years old and recently I was robbed and had my shotgun stolen. This is a stupid story but I recently saw an old friend and he needed a ride so I said i would give him a ride. So I poppes my trunk so that he could put his bag in my trunk when I did he saw my shotgun and asked to see it. So I pulled it out and he asked if it was loaded when I said no he ended up pulling out a pistol and robbed me for the gun. This happened about a week ago and I still have not reported it stolen as I did not know I needed to in Ohio at first, then since I havent reported it ive been scared to report it because I might get in trouble for not reporting it when it happened. I am not sure what to do.

    I m on felony probation for trafficking marijuana (dropped to possession with intent). My probation is from Oklahoma but I m transferred to California because this is where I live. My term s say that I have to take random tests, and also says "the defendant shall not use or possess any narcotics, dangerous drugs, controlled substances, marijuana, or paraphernalia unless prescribed." The part where it says "unless prescribed", if I get a medical marijuana card, is that a prescription? And if so can I smoke weed and test dirty without getting violated?

    Couple of months ago, my iPad was stolen during class. I always assumed it was one of the kids who left soon after, but yesterday I found out exactly who did it, but the guy was expelled for possession of drugs. Ever since then I've been thinking about how I'm going to get the Ipad back. I planned to go to his house and confront him, but he is a drug addict and is erratic at times. So I found his phone number and I'm planning on finding out as much as possible on his parents/ relatives to gain some leverage. I also planned to find some evidence of him on drugs (pictures and videos if possible) so if worst case scenario I have something to fall back on. I'm mostly worried he pawned the Ipad, but he's the type of dick to keep it as a trophy kind of thing. He's stolen many things from school, and worst case scenario I'll have to bring that up to use as leverage. If he's pawned the Ipad I don't know how to respond, ask for money? Or bring in the police? Any help as to how to catch him or how to get it back should help. I assume he wiped the Ipad because I cannot track it.

    I want to bring a vape (suorin drop) to Boston. After research, I found out that it s legal to put a vape in your carry on. My main concern is that I m 16 and it s illegal to be in possession of a vape in USA at my age. Before you jump to judgemental comments saying I m a disgrace for breaking the law just know I m using it as a method to quit smoking. I m worried tsa will take my vape away from me after finding out I m 16, or even worse I ll be arrested. I don t think I m in the condition to quit yet and I m really worried about the possible consequences of me bringing it. Is TSA in the business of busting minors for tobacco or will I be okay because I m obeying the rules of travel. Please help me, thanks.

    Best answer: I am sorry that you are dealing with this situation. That being said, you are the parent and thus legal guardian of your children. You chose not to teach them to drive, you sent them on the errand knowing that the roads were dangerous and as such must accept that you are partly responsible. Now, the driver that struck your children is partly responsible and if their name and insurance information and if they were given a citation by the responding law enforcement you can go after them. That being said, contact the ambulance service and the hospital and explain your situation.
