A person who legally owns a gun can become an unlawful gun owner if they use the firearm for illegal purposes, such as committing a crime, without being caught. It’s essential for legal gun owners to use their firearms responsibly and in accordance with the law to prevent becoming unlawful gun owners. Compliance with firearms laws and regulations is crucial to maintain lawful ownership and avoid legal consequences.
I would also add that legal firearm owners can easily become unlawful owners when their Federal, State or local governments repeatedly change the laws without notifying everyone. For evidence look at CA that just passed 23 new anti self defense laws. How many CA residents know of all these changes let alone have read through the countless pages to try and figure out how all these rules will apply to themselves?
As usual all these changes have no affect on the real criminals since they weren’t following any of the laws to begin with.
Ahh, if only the government would comply with the 2nd amendment…
