Convicted Congressman Asks for the Right to Bear Arms

Former San Diego Congressman Randy “Duke” Cunningham wants the right to carry a firearm when he is released from federal prison later this year.

The 70-year-old Cunningham, who pleaded guilty to tax evasion and conspiracy, recently asked a judge to help him regain his rights to own weapons. As a felon, Cunningham is legally forbidden from carrying arms.

Judge Larry A. Burns wrote back, saying he had no power to help Cunningham, according to U-T San Diego, which posted both letters on its website over the weekend.
