The Sinister Side of Identity Theft…

Finding out that your identity has been stolen is a nightmare come true. To make matters worse, not all identity theft is equal. Sometimes, it strikes at your right to defend yourself and your family…

One woman’s nightmare was just beginning when she discovered her ID was stolen and used to purchase a firearm. Erica Nicole Blake plead guilty after using a West Virginia driver’s license belonging to another woman to purchase a handgun from an FFL dealer. Blake, a convicted felon, was prohibited under federal law from purchasing or possessing firearms. Imagine her victim’s surprise when police investigators questioned her regarding Blake’s activities.

When your identity is used to commit crimes, your entire world can be turned upside down.

What happens if your stolen ID is used to purchase a firearm? What if that firearm is used and left at a crime scene? What if the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives performs a firearms trace leading them to you? What are you going to tell the federal agents at your door asking to inspect your gun collection?

It can be painful and costly for a victim to unwind identity theft. You are not responsible for the crimes others commit, but without an advocate protecting your rights you may lose some or all of the Second Amendment privileges you hold most dear.

  1. Last week my wife had her debet card number stolen at either Wal-Mart or Walgreens in Cleburne, Texas. They attempted to steal $500 worth of gas and items but was turned away. We now have to wait two weeks for new cards. They could have very well purchased a firearm. I am going to get the coverage today. Newell Temple

  2. Your article states “…you may lose some or all of the Second Amendment privileges you hold most dear.”
    You’re confusing me: does the Second Amendment protect RIGHTS or “privileges”?

  3. Good catch, Mr.Kendrick. I read right over it and I know better. Can’t wait to see what their answer is. A lawyer wouldn’t make that mistake, would he/she?

  4. I agree that they are definitely Rights, with the meaning that they are a legal entitlement granted by our Second Amendment.

    But, I think the author was using “privilege” in the broader sense, meaning they are rights that we enjoy as a member of this great nation. In that sense, we are privileged to have the protections these Rights give us.

  5. IT IS A ‘CREATOR GRANTED BIRTHRIGHT’,RECOGNIZED AS SUCH BY THE FOUNDERS AND SPELLED OUT IN THE SECOND AMENDMENT,

  6. the bill of rights does not confer rights upon anyone. we have god given rights. the Bill of Rights are articles-common law which states that the government shall not infringe upon our god given rights. Who is breaking the law, we the people or the government ??

    Actually Thomas, we’re dealing with a little of BOTH.
    As Steve pointed out, the bill of rights does not confer any rights, its a hands off order to government. the right to bear arms, or peaceful assembly, or freedom of religion, are freedoms/rights ASSUMED, and are stated as Divinely ordained and as such are above the purview of Government. Divine authority is above that of government. For example.. the 1st. “Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof”.. etc. The Bill doesn’t grant rights, it SECURES them. But, for the purpose of taxation, governments find their way around “rights” with “license”. Carry permits, drivers license, etc. We have the right to free travel, but a drivers license is “exception” to law. When we apply for a drivers license we enter into a contractual relationship with the state, granting them the right to regulate our activity. A “license” grants what is normally not permissible by LAW. So you see, a carry “license” is a contract that allows government to regulate or restrict the nature of our bearing of arms. It’s a sticky area, which is why “constitutional” carry is always superior to permitted carry.
