President Gun Control Again Grants Clemency to Violent Criminals Convicted of Gun Offenses

He’s very serious about fighting “gun violence” or something.

President Obama offered 102 federal inmates the chance to leave prison early, wielding his clemency powers Thursday as part of his end-of-term push to spur action on criminal justice reform.

The latest round of commutations brings to 774 the number of sentences Obama has shortened, including 590 this year.

The White House said it’s more than the previous 11 presidents put together. Thirty-four of the new recipients had been serving life sentences.

Almost all the prisoners had been convicted of nonviolent crimes related to cocaine, methamphetamine or other drugs, although some were also serving time for firearms violations in connection to drug trafficking, possession or sales.

Almost all are men, though they represent a diverse cross-section of the country geographically.

You can bet that’s the only diversity involved here. Weird how the anti-gun nuts don’t say a peep when their president frees gun felons, isn’t it?  Here’s a look at some of the charming future Democrat voters Obama’s letting roam the streets again.

Shawn Leo Barth – Bismarck, N.D.

Offense: Conspiracy to possess with intent to distribute methamphetamine; possession of a controlled substance with intent to distribute methamphetamine; distribution of a controlled substance methamphetamine; possession with intent to distribute a controlled substance marijuana; possession of a firearm in furtherance of a drug trafficking crime; felon in possession of a firearm/ammunition; District of North Dakota

Sentence: Life plus 60 months’ imprisonment; 10 years’ supervised release (March 22, 2004)

Commutation Grant: Prison sentence commuted to a term of 322 months’ imprisonment.

Life sentence, now walks.

Leroy Fondren, Jr.  – Kansas City, Kan.

Offense: Possession with intent to distribute 50 grams or more of cocaine base; use of a firearm during a drug trafficking crime; District of Kansas

Sentence: 180 months’ imprisonment; five years’ supervised release (March 26, 2007)

Commutation Grant: Prison sentence commuted to expire on February 3, 2017.

Arthur Jarrod Jackson – Dallas, Texas

Offense: Possession with intent to distribute crack and aiding and abetting; carrying or use of a firearm during a drug crime and aiding and abetting; felon in possession of a firearm; Northern District of Texas

Sentence: 420 months’ imprisonment; five years’ supervised release (May 19, 1994)

Commutation Grant: Prison sentence commuted to expire on February 3, 2017.

We don’t want to hear another goddamn word about “getting guns off the streets” since when we do we have a president letting the criminals back on the streets.

Tesmone Darin Paschal – Maryville, Tenn.

Offense: Possession with intent to distribute 50 grams or more of cocaine base; aided and abetted in the possession of a firearm by a convicted felon; Eastern District of Tennessee

Sentence: 300 months’ imprisonment; 10 years’ supervised release (April 2, 2007)

Commutation Grant: Prison sentence commuted to a term of 188 months’ imprisonment.

Whoa, so he was already a convicted felon and was in possession of a firearm. It’s almost as if criminals ignore gun laws.

Cornelius D. Porter – Mount Rainer, Md.

Offense: Felon in possession of a firearm and ammunition; possession with intent to distribute cocaine; possession with intent to distribute more than five grams of cocaine base; District of Maryland

Sentence: 360 months’ imprisonment; eight years’ supervised release (December 9, 2002)

Commutation Grant: Prison sentence commuted to expire on October 6, 2018, conditioned upon enrollment in residential drug treatment.

James Harold Smith – Waynesboro, Va.

Offense: Conspiracy to distribute methamphetamine; possession of a firearm in furtherance of a drug trafficking crime (two counts); Western District of Virginia

Sentence: 411 months’ imprisonment; five years’ supervised release (November 2, 2006)

Commutation Grant: Prison sentence commuted to expire on October 6, 2018, conditioned upon enrollment in residential drug treatment.

There are many more of them.

    Remember there is an election coming up and democrats need every voter they can get because there is little to no enthusiasm for Granny Cankles.
