Onetime Huntington Beach Pro Surfer Hopeful Lands In Federal Prison

In the 80s, Ronald Ennis grew up in Huntington Beach, stood up for the victims of bullies, showed compassion to his friends and excelled so much at surfing and skateboarding that people thought he could turn pro when he got older.

Somehow that Ennis turned into a gun-toting felon with a large, offensive Nazi swastika tattooed on the right side of his shaved head.

There's no mystery to the downfall: drug addictions.

Ennis began drinking alcohol at the age of 12 and smoking marijuana the following year. At the age of 17, he started using cocaine. By the time he was 25 he'd become addicted to methamphetamine and heroin.

The drug use resulted in a wasted life plus numerous adversarial contacts with prosecutors inside the Orange County District Attorney's office and five criminal convictions, including carjacking.

In Dec. 2012, law enforcement agents found Ennis carrying a Walther P-38, 9mm pistol and this week inside Orange County's Ronald Reagan Federal Courthouse U.S. District Court Judge Josephine L. Staton sentenced him to a term of 51 months in prison.

Felons are banned from possessing weapons.

The 39-year-old defendant apologized to Staton and promised he plans to remove certain tattoos.

His dream?

He hopes to become a drug counselor when he emerges back into society in late 2017 or early 2018.

The tattoo on the right side of his head appears to be incapable of being removed by lasers.  I suggest amputation.

 "Felons are banned from possessing weapons."

Not just Felons anymore, thanks to the NRA's cowardly acquiescence of the abrogation of the 2nd Amendment when it was denied to "other people", the Feds have now extended the firearms ban to include certain MISDEMEANORS ... and even those who haven't been convicted of any crime.

Where in the Second Amendment does it say "felons"  -- or anyone else -- can be denied the right to keep and bear arms?

What part of Shall NOT Be Infringed don't they comprehend?
