Boswell (defendant) was charged with being a felon in possession of two firearms. During his trial, Boswell took the stand in his own defense. Boswell testified that he did not like firearms since the time his grandfather had committed suicide. The prosecution then questioned Boswell on why he had a tattoo of a gun on his neck if he did not like firearms. Boswell objected, arguing that his gun tattoo was irrelevant. The trial court allowed the question. Following his conviction, Boswell appealed on the grounds that the trial court should not have allowed the prosecution to question him about his gun tattoo.
