For convicted felons that like to carry a gun I offer:

US-Code of Virginia-18.2-308.2
Extract-Any person who violated this section by knowingly and intentionally possessing or transporting any firearm and who was previously convicted of a violent felony as defined in 17.1-805 shall be sentenced to a mandatory minimum term of imprisonment of five years. Any person who violates this section by knowingly and intentionally possessing or transporting any firearm and who was previously convicted of any other felony within the prior ten years shall be sentenced to a mandatory minimum term of imprisonment of two years.

It is a FEDERAL felony for a federally convicted felon to EVER own or possess a firearm. The U.S. Criminal Code makes the penalty for illegal possession of a firearm a mandatory minimum of fifteen (15) years in prison in some cases (Title 18 USC sec924(e)(1). At this time federally convicted felons have no solution for their firearm disqualification.

So maybe you have been convicted in a state court of a felony and then you decide it is okay to carry your weapon onto post office property, into a federal park, or onto federal property like a courthouse or other facility?

Well tough guy, don't let me stop you since you may qualify for social security benefits by the time you get out.

In terms of sentencing a dead dog is the smallest problem this pair now faces.

Were I a felon that likes to carry a gun, keep one in my car or maybe my home I would be very nice to everyone that I know since any of them has the power to make me go away for more than a few years.

Poor dog had no bone to pick with these thugs. So why shoot the dog??? Are they typical red necks out for a few kicks? OK let Bubba take care of them in prison. That is where they need to be. My heart goes out to the dog's owner.... I am sure he loved his dog as I do mine and I hope these two get what is due them!!!

Those shouldn't judge. They have not been convicted of these crimes so therefore we don't even know for sure they did it. Hint hint....Innocent until proven guilty.

We're definitely on the same page here, but you confused the issue a bit with your next-to-last paragraph. I believe NO ONE can carry (other than law enforcement) into those places, although I'm not positive what you mean by "federal park."

Hint Hint...they turned themselves in and confessed!! I think probably because the idiots think they are entitled to the reward if and when they get out.

I am sorry for the loss of the dog. Pets are family member to many people. That being said. I am glad that these two didn't kill a person. If they can kill an animal in a yard in a private community then they seem capable of much worse . I hope they are not allowed outside bars again as it is obvious they can not be rehabilitated into society safely.
