I am not real big on the felons aren't allowed to own firearms thing. I guess that is putting it lightly. I can't believe it is a law.
There needs to be a standard less vague.
Felons encompass a huge spectrum of laws, one bad decision can make you a felon for the rest of your life.
I don't think a person who was selling pot when they were 24 should lose the ability to reasonably protect themselves and/or their families for the rest of their lives.
How about no guns for violent felons or those convicted of crime involving firearms.
I am sure we could improve on that to encompass others who don't need to have a firearm... but it is a way better standard than we have now.
Well, I personally believe most laws on weapons are unconstitutional. I also believe that one should get a separate hearing to remove a person's rights to bear arms. I have no problem removing a person's tights to bear arms if he was used a weapon in a crime. I also think that if you are involved in a voting crime, you should lose your rights to vote!<quoted text>
Particularly disgusting is when lawmakers make a misdemeanor into a felony because it has become so common. But it happens.
