It is illegal for convicted felons and illegal aliens to own or possess a firearm, but if you look at the daily news reports from across the country, you will see that dozens of felons are being arrested for being in possession of firearms on a daily basis.

In this case, a federal grand jury in Alabama just indicted three convicted felons and one illegal alien, a Mexican national, for illegally possessing firearms.

The maximum penalty for the charges against the four individuals is 10 years in prison and a fine of $250,000. Hopefully, all four will be convicted and given the maximum sentence without the chance of parole, because they have demonstrated they have no regard for the law.

( – A Federal grand jury today indicted three convicted felons and a Mexican national on illegal firearms possession charges, the U.S. Attorney’s Office said in a statement.

The grand jury charged Jacob Andrew Hammett, Stephen Canning Pruitt and Alphonso O’Neal Bess as convicted felons in possession of firearms. The charges stem from separate, unrelated incidents, officials said.

“Felons who continue to violate our laws remain prime targets for federal law enforcement to take off the streets with federal charges on their way to federal prison,” said U.S. Attorney Jay Town. “Our office is committed to having federal, state and local law enforcement working together to identify repeat offenders who threatening our communities with guns and violence and prove to everyone that there is no parole to cut short a federal prison sentence.”

In many areas of the country, the number of felons being caught in possession of firearms has been steadily increasing even in states with strict gun control laws to prevent them from getting guns. They get them by stealing them from homes, cars and stores or by illegally buying them for others, but one thing is clear – if they want a gun, they will get one.
