CASE ENTRY

United States v. Begay

“MURDER in the second-degree is NOT a crime of violence??? … ‘I feel like I am taking crazy pills.’” So writes Judge N.R. Smith of the Ninth Circuit, dissenting from his colleagues’ interpretation of a federal law that authorizes heightened penalties for using, carrying, or possessing a firearm in connection with any federal “crime of violence.”
