    No problem. Just for added clarity, you can see the applicable Alabama law here (starting at 13A-11-50):

    And the applicable federal law here:

    http://www.law.cornell.edu/uscode/text/18/922

    I do think I may have misspoke in one place. Section 13A-11-76 of the Code of Alabama says "No person shall deliver a pistol to any person under the age of 18 or to one who he has reasonable cause to believe has been convicted of a crime of violence or is a drug addict, an habitual drunkard or of unsound mind." Dyer got on the stand and admitted to being a drug addict and habitual drunkard, and his actions appear to demonstrate an unsound mind so she probably did commit that misdemeanor offense.

    Re: Former Auburn RB Mike Dyer testifies his gun was used in alleged robbery

    Ok ... I have two questions about this situation ...
    1. If it's felony to SELL a gun to a person when you know they may commit a crime, is it also a felony to allow someone to USE your personal gun when you know they may use it to commit a crime?

    2. Also when did the Barn know that it was Dyer's gun they used? Asking because he was suspended at the end of the season and from what I can remember, we never heard WHY he was suspended ... wondering if they did that after the season was up to cover their behinds. I'm pretty sure there's a good chance they knew this before the season was over, and if so ... seems like plenty cause for him to be suspended or kicked off the team at that time ...

    Re: Former Auburn RB Mike Dyer testifies his gun was used in alleged robbery

    Here's some information from today's hearing...

    Goodwin's signed statement is largely consistent with the testimony of the five victims Wednesday and Thursday. He said he carried a BB gun and stayed in the living room while co-defendants Mike McNeil and Shaun Kitchens searched the house. Goodwin said the fourth defendant, Dakota Mosley, was "just driving."Goodwin said the robbery was "not my idea." He said he was picked up that night by McNeil and had planned to just "chill and do normal stuff." But talk eventually turned to the robbery."We had heard there was a sweet lick," wrote Goodwin, referring to the slang term for getting money or committing a robbery. "and we decided to ride over and hit the lick....I want to make clear we just wanted to scare them. We had no intention of hurting anyone."


    Really? Just wanted to scare them? No intention of hurting anyone? Please.

    Prosecutors could rest their case as early as this afternoon. The defense has subpoenaed several high-profile potential witnesses, including head football coach Gene Chizik, assistant head coach and receivers coach Trooper Taylor and head baseball coach John Pawlowski, although it's not clear whether the judge will allow their testimony.
    I'll be interested to see if Chiz and Troop make it.

    Let me get this straight... They are testifying in court with their familiarity of robbery slang? [sarcasm] Genius! [/sarcasm]

    I've been told that the Lee County Sheriff department didn't have a hard time tracing the gun to Dyer.

    To be fair, you can learn that slang watching tv. Given that some of these guys grew up in rough environments, this isn't telling. And I"m sure plenty of our own players know similar slang. Hell, I know some of that slang and I'm a middle class white dude.

    It is illegal to posess a fire arm at a school. Wouldn't this also apply to colleges?

    No, only K-12 in Alabama.

    You also do not need a pistol permit to own a handgun in Alabama unless you want to carry it concealed or have it in a vehicle. There are no laws against open carry in Alabama - with a few exceptions (public schools, public demonstrations, etc.). It's kind of a dumb idea to openly carry a firearm, though, and you'll probably get harassed by the po-po.

    Moot question anyhow. From the article, it sounds like they were in private residences.
