After Charges Are Dropped, Man Decries High Price Of Exercising Gun Rights


A former Springfield man says he doesn’t believe he was doing anything wrong when he was caught carrying a concealed weapon back in 2011. 

 

But when police caught him with the gun, Donnell Jackson was slapped with a felony charge that remained over his head until the charge was dropped last week, after lawmakers approved a bill to allow residents to carry concealed firearms. 

 

Appearing live on 970 WMAY’s “Bishop On Air,” Jackson says he believed then, and now, in his right to protect himself.  But he says the pending felony charge hurt his ability to land a job.  Now that the charge is dropped, Jackson hopes to pursue a career in healthcare.
