    "federal charges of possessing firearms while being a convicted felon"
    He obviously lied on his application and somehow passed a background check.

    *The affidavit said that on Oct. 3, Holloway told investigators he had stopped selling firearms after speaking with them on Aug. 28 and that he had taken all of his guns off an online sales platform he used. *

    hope this wasn't anybody here.

    Things are so bad now at DOC that they started allowing felons to work there as long as they had been out of the system for, I believe it was, 10 years.

    That's been the case for some time now.

    He was just creating more business for his employers.

    Funny because the same DoC won't hire me because I'm a resident alien rather than a citizen.

    A ham radio friend went back to work at a gated community as a nurse. He had worked there for many years and knew what to expect. He left after six month because he was afraid he wouldn’t get out alive otherwise.

    Ya’ll don’t get me started on the destruction of the DOC. It’s worse than the general public is aware of and everything the administration does is ass backwards. Anyway, looks like they hired a few.

    I'm guessing Gowilkes. I've seen plenty of people posting handguns on there with "nO pErMiT RuhQuirEd".

    Had a friend that went to work in the prison system somewhere near Ashville. He was in the kitchen. Lasted about a month and said no more. Same reason as stated before, he did not think he would get out alive and he had already lost about 20 pounds from the stress of working there.

    These types of people are who need to be delt with harshly. We need to do a purge of the most violent inmates currently there to free up space and I'm not talking about releasing them either .

    Leave the rest of us alone and stop trying to take our guns.

    Guess there is a good reason why my car is usually si king deeply into its shocks as it is loaded with ammo and firearms as I drive through Wilkes on the way to W. Jefferson.

    That doesn't look like a very diverse group there. I think they need some Affirmative Action there.

    I've heard his comments on the repeater.

    I'm glad he left that circus.

    I remember Hillary starting a “ban the box” chant to remove the felon declaration from federal job applications.

    Yep, great idea.

    I went to high school with “Mr. Horton”. He shot in the air at the store about 250ft from my house. He is trouble!

    So it's your fault. You should have ‘taken him out’ years ago. :p

    This is how they caught him. He robbed the drug dealer at the store near my house and shot in the air to convince the drug dealer to hand over the goods. It lit a fire under the LEOs and they arrested him.

    Bright guy huh? Think I may need a 50 cal on the deck overlooking the driveway up there. Plenty of room for sandbags in front.

    There are getting to be more and more with this attitude. He is a career criminal. He has a dozen or so felony convictions and has spent the better part of two decades behind bars. A big fiddy ain’t a bad idea to cover that road!
