    All though since he was a dealer I doubt that he could have a firearm. But good example if you don't notice the drug dealing part...

    Wow, be careful DH.
    I would say I'm lucky to live a couple hours from SA, but then I remembered I live like 2min south of Houston:(

    How does being a cannabis cultivator preclude him from having a firearm?

    Unless he had been convicted of a previous felony, his legal right to purchase a firearm would not have been restricted.

    He likely would have been breaking a law by possessing a firearm while in commission of the "crime" of possession of pot - but he'd have been better off alive and facing those charges rather than the alternative of being dead.

    As has been said numerous times, stay away from the world of drugs and your odds are far more favorable.

    Home defense and firearms? Why preach to the choir? That's actually rather an insult, given that this is a firearms website, frequented by firearms owners.
