People have been fined, ticketed, ridiculed, and joked about gun ownership even when it is not only our right, but legal in every way. This poor man had his life ruined by anti-gunners that found one thing wrong.
In 2010, Brian Aitken was sentenced to prison for 7 years for the possession of guns he owned and legally purchased in Colorado. This sentence also made him lose custody of his infant son due to his indictment of this non-violent offense as reported by Fox News Philly.
Governor Chris Christie issued executive clemency to Aitken 4 months into his sentence but he still hasn’t seen his son in 6 years.
Aitken wrote a book from his experience called, The Blue Sky Tent Sky: How the Left’s war on Guns Cost Me My Son and My Freedom. This book is also a message to his son that hopefully one day he will read.
Aitken explains what exactly happened and how he got his son taken away.
“The big problem in New Jersey is that guns are illegal unless you meet a number of exemptions. And one of those exemptions says that you are allowed to legally take your firearms from the place of purchase to your house, from your house to go hunting, from your house to go to the shooting range, but from one house to another when you’re moving. And we spent the entire trial talking about how I had just started a new lease on January 2nd, 2009 and was moving into a new house. Despite spending several days talking about this, the prosecutor talked about the exemptions, every witness had testified, even the states witnesses testified about these exemptions. The Jury came back 3 times from deliberations and asked the judge, what are the exemptions for these laws? We need to know under what conditions people are allowed to legally take their firearms from one place to the other. And every single time the judge refused for them to know. Ultimately, Governor Chris Christie let me out of prison; I’ve received a lot of help from second amendment groups,” he explained.
Overall, the judge wasn’t convinced that he couldn’t get his guns back if he wanted to and being a gun owner made Aitken seem like a dangerous parent. Even though Aitken is out of prison, he still hasn’t seen his son or knows where his whereabouts are.
