CASE ENTRY

Hatfield v. Barr

Man collects unemployment benefits but is actually still working. Fraud! He’s sentenced to probation but could have served a max of five years. Seventh Circuit: It does not violate the Second Amendment to prohibit him from possessing guns. His crime may not have been violent, but it was serious. And 40% of nonviolent felons are caught committing subsequent crimes (some violent)—who knows on which side of the line he’ll fall?
