New DUI Law That Affects Firearms Rights

Covert prohibition.

the Superior Court held that an individual who, during a first or second DUI, refused to provide blood or breath testing, could only be punished by a maximum of six (6) months in jail, although it is graded as a misdemeanor of the 1st degree. As the maximum sentence that could be imposed was six months, although graded as a misdemeanor of the 1st degree, such a conviction would not trigger the federal disability, pursuant to 18 U.S.C. 922.

Today, Governor Corbett signed SB 1239, which effectively changed section 3802, so that the maximum sentence that can be imposed upon an individual who, during a first or second DUI, refuses to provide blood or breath testing, is five years, which consistent with most misdemeanors of the first degree. Accordingly, those individual who are now convicted under the amended DUI Code will be prohibited under 18 U.S.C. 922 from possessing or purchasing a firearm, regardless of the sentence imposed.

Well it can't be ex-post-facto so it should only affect future DUI arrests.

This is the shit that makes Corbett a cocksucker. He has a habit and a record of signing shit like this into law.

This is the first time I've heard anything about this. Has this been publicized prior to the signing? Did the lawmakers even realize what this would do to firearms rights?

^ This. But either way, you don't have to worry about it if you don't drink and drive.

The M1 was simply brought into line with the typical sentence for an M1. It's not some nefarious gun prohibition. If anything, it's simply an unfortunate effect of standardizing sentencing.

Awesome logic. This is along the lines of "Hey, I dont have anything to hide so let them search me, my house, my car as they please".

The limit is so damn low that some people who have just 1 beer have a chance at failing. Why? because of studies that were not peer reviewed by America's modern day prohibition lobby, MADD, and the Feds threats to cut state highway funding if the states don't fall in line. It's all about control, not safety.

Having a beer or 2 with dinner at an establishment and driving home should not put you in danger of being a prohibited person.

My guess is that this was part of some compromise to get other gun laws passed. Cocksuckers.

I don't see how that's anywhere similar. You're talking about complying with a search. I'm suggesting you don't break the law. That's all.

Having [been convicted of a non violent crime or after you've served your time] should not put you in danger of being a prohibited person.
