Brickbat: Off the Books

Agents from a
special California state task force showed up at Michael Merritt’s
Bakersfield home one night demanding all the guns he and his wife
had. They insisted he could not have firearms because he had
pleaded guilty to a felony in 1970. Merritt tried to tell them that
he’d pleaded guilty to misdemeanor
marijuana possession
. But they wouldn’t listen and took all
this firearms. Several days later, they admitted he was right and
returned his guns. A spokesman told local media the agents had been
working from court records that had not been updated.
