Legal Question

Asked on: 3/30/13, 10:34 pm

By pardoning an offender, the individual is fully forgiven from all the legal consequences of the crime and its conviction. I just looked the legal definition of a pardon and that's what I found. So my question is, can these pardoned individuals legally purchase firearms, and if they can and use the firearm in the commission of a crime can Governor Brown be held responsible, and if so for what? This is in reference to CA Governor Jerry Brown and the pardoning of 64 people.
