Project Veritas’ James O’Keefe has never been convicted of a felony. He’s never done anything that should impede his right to keep and bear arms. Yet, that’s what happened to him.
It all stemmed from the FBI incorrectly labeling O’Keefe a felon in the National Instant Criminal Background Check System.
The hurdle imposed on O’Keefe through gross incompetence, or perhaps more sinister forces, has prompted him to sue the FBI. (Project Veritas)
“The lawsuit is being filed in the Southern District Court of New York seeking an order requiring the FBI to remove him from this list as required by law under 18 U.S.C. § 925A,” said Jered Ede Esq., who is representing O’Keefe.
“Notably, the FBI has not disclosed what information it is relying on to place him on its watch list,” Ede stated in the complaint filed with the court.
In one instance, a store clerk suggested not only was it a violation of the right to bear arms, but it was worthy of a lawsuit.
