Federal Jury Convicts Fort Hall Man of

Unlawful Possession of Ammunition

POCATELLO – Frank R. Ish, 58, of Fort Hall, Idaho, was convicted yesterday by a federal jury in Pocatello of unlawful possession of ammunition, U.S. Attorney Wendy J. Olson announced.  Ish was charged by indictment on January 27, 2015.

According to the evidence presented at trial, on October 15, 2014, Fort Hall Police officers observed a box of 30-06 ammunition in Ish’s vehicle, during an investigation of a disturbance at Ish’s residence.  Because Ish had been previously convicted of a felony, he was prohibited from possessing ammunition under federal law.

Sentencing is set for December 14, 2016, before Chief U.S. District Judge B. Lynn Winmill at the federal courthouse in Pocatello.  Ish faces up to ten years in prison, a maximum fine of $250,000, and up to three years of supervised release.

The case was investigated by the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF), the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) and Fort Hall Tribal Police.

The case was prosecuted as part of Idaho’s Project Safe Neighborhoods Program, which seeks to reduce gun violence in Idaho.

  1. Why is it laws can be passed and upheld by courts forbidding felons from owning firearms/ammunition for life and yet I am unaware of court approved laws forever forbidding felons from freely exercising their religion, their freedom of speech, their right to peaceably assemble, and to petition the government for a redress of grievances; or their right to be secure in their persons, houses, paper, and effects; or their right to not be compelled to be a witness against themselves.

    As far as I’m concerned the right to own firearms is a God-endowed unalienable right that the government should not be able to infringe.

    Criminals spend time in prison for their offenses and once released should be able to exercise every unalienable right all other citizens enjoy.

    To every felon out there who might be reading this who possesses firearms and ammunition, I applaud your resistance to this tyranny. More power to ya’!

  2. Unless you are a liberal democrat, a felony used to remove your right to vote. Now HiLIARy wants all felons to be able to vote. (As long as you vote democrat)
