Additionally, to gain 501 (c)3 status you must be incorporated, and most states charge a fee when you file for incorporation.Once you have filled out the necessary paperwork, it is important to know what you’ll need to file at tax time each year.That means that a person can commit a rather violent crime, and often plea bargain it down to a misdemeanor. Note that I am not arguing in favor of taking guns away from such people.Instead, I am saying that if the supposed goal of the federal law is to keep violent criminals from having guns, then that supposed purpose is not served, since those convicted of violent misdemeanors can still possess guns.Remember, the supposed goal of The Gun Control Act of 1968 is to keep those who will commit violent crimes from having a gun, not to re-punish a convicted felon who has already been punished and released from jail.Given that fact, the question becomes whether banning all felons from ever having a gun again is reasonably related to preventing crime – and I’m compelled to answer that question in the negative.
In fact, many of these “white collar” felonies are committed by wealthier people who, statistically speaking, are less likely to commit violent crimes than the average citizen.
