Breaking News – Nevada Candidate sues Feds over Gun Control Act

10 May, 2016 – Barry Michaels, a Democrat running for Nevada’s 3rd Congressional District ( filed a class action lawsuit against the federal government on March 15, 2016. Michaels is a convicted felon and under federal law, he cannot possess a firearm to protect himself and his family.

According to Michaels: “It makes no sense to be able to serve in Congress or even become. President of the United States, but be barred for life from owning a firearm to protect myself and my loved ones. I could have my finger on the nuclear trigger but not on the trigger of a Colt 45.  The idea of creating second class citizens contradicts the Constitution and more specifically, the Second Amendment.”

Michaels alleges the Federal Gun Control Act 18 U.S.C. Section 922(g)(1), as applied to him and millions of other similarly situated law-abiding felons, violates their constitutional rights.
