At Seminar, Lawyers Agree to Snitch on Clients Who Have Guns

Published

on

Gun owners could be at risk of losing their Second Amendment rights and other freedoms if their lawyers believe that possessing firearm defines them as dangerous.

At The Federalist, Rebecca Kathryn Jude highlighted a troubling scenario at an ethics seminar, “The ‘Perfect’ Match: Selecting Clients for Successful Representation (Ethics),” that she was attending.

Adam Kilgore, general counsel for the Mississippi Bar, put forward a hypothetical scenario the group of civil and criminal lawyers in attendance:

A man has been fired from his job. He is upset. He hires you as his attorney. You are of the opinion he has an excellent case and file a complaint on his behalf. You later discover he possesses a permit to carry a firearm. He also has a so-called enhanced carry license. While his case is wending through the courts, your client goes to a public area outside his former workplace. He displays signs that say he has been wrongfully fired. The man has no history of criminal activity, violence, or threatening anyone.

The instructor then asked the class what action they would  pursue in this situation. In Jude’s view, “there was no reason to do anything except proceed with the client’s case.”

She then added that she “would also advise my client to avoid confrontations with anyone who worked for his former employer and what he might consider saying if approached by the media.”

Much to her surprise, however, was her peers’ response.

According to Jude, “many lawyers immediately said they would terminate the attorney-client relationship and contact law enforcement to report their client was potentially dangerous. The only reason offered was his firearm permits.”

Jude was “flabbergasted” and for good reason.

Mississippi is one of the most pro-gun states in the country, ranked in 16th place according to the Guns & Ammo magazine.

It is also one of the 16 states in the country with Constitutional Carry.

Jude was appalled that her colleagues “were proposing to violate the attorney-client privilege, which establishes one of the most sacrosanct confidential relationships” in this hypothetical scenario put forward.

She noted that the attorneys “focused on the fact the client owned a gun and had firearm permits” and that this “was enough to label him as reasonably certain to cause death or serious bodily harm and report him to the police.”

This case highlighted by Jude shows the kinds of different tactics anti-gun proponents are using these days to subvert gun rights.

BLP has reported on numerous occasions how certain corporate interests like Dick’s Sporting Goods and CEOs have pitched in to undermine gun rights.

Gun controllers recognize that they don’t have full legislative control, so they’ll find other means to subvert gun rights.

FLASHBACK: Man Arrested at Bill Gates’ Estate for Allegedly Exchanging Child Porn

Published

on

In late December 2014, police arrested a Seattle man at Bill Gates and Melinda Gates’ mansion for allegedly compiling more than 6,000 child rape photos.

Rick Allen Jones was employed as an engineer at the Gates’ home and was accused of trading pornography images though Gmail.

He was charged with possession of child pornography.

At the time, the 51-year-old man had been collecting child porn for a decade, according to a report from King County prosecutors.

In 2013, investigators started investigating Jones.

They were able to track him down in March 2014 after he shared a suspicious image on Gmail.

Investigators initially failed to find Jones at his Ballard, Washington apartment. However, police ended up finding Jones at Gates’ estate.

It should be noted none of the crimes actually took place at the Gates mansion.

As Jones was talking to law enforcement at the Gates’ estate, three other detectives obtained a search warrant for Jones’ in Ballard.

At the apartment, the authorities found more than 6,000 images of grisly child porn and rape, 133 of which were children identified by police. On June 19, 2015, Jones plead guilty to felony possession of child pornography and failing to report child pornography.

He was sentenced to 90 days at King County jail, which was accompanied by two years of probation — a complete slap on the wrist when compared to similar cases.

Gates has been a leading proponent of globalist causes in the last few decades.

He is currently spearheading a movement to bring mass vaccination to the U.S. to fight the Wuhan Virus.

One of the nastier secrets of these elites are their alleged connections to vast pedophile rings.

Although there’s no concrete evidence to implicate Gates as a member of these networks, it is rather curious that an employee of his would get caught up in such activities and receive a light sentence.
