Yes a felon does not have a right to own a gun or serve on a jury. I hope the ninnies in the state legislature also refuse to restore his right to vote. Unfortunately, many places feel it is okay to restore that one right. If you feel a felon should get his right to vote back, then all the other rights should be restored too. If cannot trust someone to own a gun, I do not trust them to vote either.

Upon completion of sentence, >"All"< rights should be restored automatically. If said violator is that untrustworthy, that dangerous, then he/ she should be kept locked up, or executed.

Amen! I've been saying the same thing for years. If a person is too violent to have all of his/her rights restored upon completion of sentence keep them in prison or execute them.

Freedom really is a simple concept.
