Gun collector

I was dismissed by the Federal Prosecutor at a Federal Court trial last week. The judge asked if anyone in the jury pool was a gun collector. Their definition was: If a person owns two or more guns. I have one that my grandmother gave me, a springfield hinge loader that probably does not operate.

The federal prosecutor mentioned my NRA membership at that sidebar also. I can not prove it, but those two admissions probably made me unacceptable in his opinion and he dismissed me from the possibility of being a juror at the trial.

I am now 0 for 10. Intelligent, educated men are not wanted on juries. The front row was one man and six women.

I would like to know how this case came out, but have not seen it in The State Newspaper. It involved a man arrested in York County on some type of gun charges.

Nice, you're dismissed because you own a couple of guns and are a NRA member. I was under the misguided impression that you are to be judged by a jury of your peers. By dismissing you and any others for similar reasons I would say that they are trying to stack the jury against the defendant.
