Can I get one, is a DUI considered domestic violence, is the 5 years almost over and is a regular AR15 considered a rifle?
I would like to buy an AR-15 in the state of Texas. However I was under arrest in 2012 but placed under court supervision for a DUI in the state of Illinois before moving to Texas. Court supervision ended May of last year. My research (though possibly wrong) has shown that I should be able to purchase a rifle. but I am not 100% certain that an AR-15 is considered a rifle because I have seen some pistol versions of the carbine upper receiver design. All I am interested in is a regular AR-15 medium barrel. I am having trouble finding out if a DUI considered a misdemeanor crime of domestic violence in anyway and if it is, if that changes if you are given court supervision. I also can't find if the five year waiting period for handguns/CNC begin from the date of arrest, or the completion of the supervision.
The first question is whether the DUI was a misdemeanor or a felony. Almost all first offense non-aggravated DUI's are...
Can hospitals hold you against your will do to suicidal thoughts? Can your statement be countable if taking while intoxicated?
I'm extremely curious if I have a case against a Hospital. This situation is very personal. But I would like to speak on it because I felt like I was done wrong and my rights were violated. I would like to explain what happen step by step then maybe you can help see if there is any wrong doing. I called 911 July 14th drunk and crying stated I had 2 loaded guns and I was having suicidal thoughts I didn't click the guns safety was on I did not put guns to my head nor face or body as they stated . At the time my daughter was in her room asleep. Cops arrived shortly after, the ambulance was then called they took me to ER soon as I got in the ER my statement was taking while I was drunk my mind was not clear at the time. From the drunken statement they took out a court order to hold me there against my will even though I was considered voluntary because I called for myself. I stated over and over that I was voluntary. Nobody statement was taking until they calmed down, sobered up then someone would enter to speak with them. I was not giving that chance. I am a 25 f single mom who was grieving deeply over family lost. I was forced to take meds that made me sick! So much more! HELP
