Boosie Badazz’s Request To Dismiss Gun Charge Denied…Will Go To TRIAL!!

Lyndon Abioye |

A judge has denied Boosie Badazz’s request to dismiss his gun charge.

Boosie’s legal team requested his case be thrown out, arguing that laws prohibiting felons from possessing firearms are unconstitutional, according to the San Diego Union-Tribune.

“Nothing in Mr. Hatch’s motion persuades this Court that these holdings are incorrect or that the Court otherwise has the right to disregard binding Ninth Circuit precedent here,” District Judge Cathy Bencivengo wrote in her ruling.

Boosie was arrested outside a courthouse in June on a possession of a weapon by a felon charge. Cops went after the rapper after he appeared on an Instagram Live stream with a gun tucked in his waistband back in May.

A felony conviction, whether rendered in state or federal court, can come with more than imprisonment and a fine. Under a federal statute, it is illegal for any person found guilty of an offense punishable by more than 1 year in prison to possess a firearm or ammunition. Further it is unlawful for a person convicted of a felony to ship, transport, receive, or possess a firearm or ammunition.
