Re: State Jail convictions

This topic has me wondering what would be the obligation to report to police if a person whom you know or suspect to be a prohibited person is attempting to purchase a gun.

Theoretically I would think that if you suspect that the person will continue to pursue obtaining a firearm by other means then you should alert authorities.

But if you suspect that the individual will no longer attempt to obtain a weapon then unless required by law I would think that you would not be under obligation to report. What are the odds that a person may not realize that they are prohibited from owning a firearm? I would think that this would be something that would be made clear when a felony conviction is made.

Certainly if you suspect that the person is attempting to obtain a weapon in order to commit a criminal act then you should report it immediately.
