Ask the Governor: Can felons regain the right to own guns?

Full story: South Florida Sun-Sentinel

Another illiterate criminal whining about having to pay the consequences of his crime. Grow up. Face reality. If you can't do the time, don't do the crime. No convicted felon should be be permitted to own a gun. Period. Now go learn to spell simple words, and perhaps your whining will be less offensive.

A felon is a felon.....Police and innocent victims are being killed because of the right to bear arms. Someone tell me what an AR15, M16, AK 47, MP5 and so forth were intended to be used for.....War is the answer.
I admit there is a war on our streets between the police and law abiding citizens and the criminal element. We cant win unless our legislators help us. The Rifle Association is a great orginization but their money fuels the legislation that allows the criminals/felons to get their hands on these murderous weapons.
how ignorant are you many felons as you call them are convicted simply because they don't have the money to afford a good lawyer,so
instead they get a public defender which you can compare to judas,
and we all know what he did to christ.Not to mention that florida will convict you of a felony if you have spit on the sidewalk 3 times. The whole system is rigged. And the governer is the biggest
scumbag should be felon of all.The only reason he's not behind bars is he's paid off a ton of people.

What an ignorant bigot! There are good & bad of all races. How many "black" serial killers have have you heard of? Once you do your time, you have paid your debt. EVERY person; black, white, yellow, or brown, should be able to protect their home & family! It concerns me most when racist bigots & ignorant or stupid individuals have guns! P.S. I am white

I guess its easy for ppl that were sheltered their whole life to spit on the poor population. if u have never lived a hard life with no money to feed ur self or ur family then ud have no reason to be convicted of a felon. its kind of hard to live a straight and narrow life in the ghetto. y don't u try living like I do I bet sum 1 as cold hearted as u would change ur view on felon's

Oh good god, the crybabying goes on. Waaaaaaaahhhhhhhhhhhhhhh I didn't have an X-box so I had to steal one. Here's a clue for you. You ghetto rats have MORE opportunity to succeed than decent people. Handout programs allow you to sit on your useless asses and have food, housing, medical care, day care (like you need that, you're not going to WORK) and ........the big one.......EDUCATION......provi ded to you without you doing a damn thing to earn it. Get off your ass and get an education. Provide for your family. Oh, and if you don't have any money, you shouldn't HAVE a family (children). Refrain from reproducing like rabid rabbits unless you can afford to feed, clothe, house and educate your spawn. Being a criminal is a choice. You have chosen to be lazy and go the criminal route. I hope you soon end up back in jail where you belong. And for cryin' out loud, while you're in there take an English course, you illiterate beast!

You're a convicted felon because you had illegal drugs in your house. No doubt you remain a target because you STILL have illegal drugs in your possession and probably sell them to school children. No, a criminal like you should not have a gun. Ever. In fact, your probation should be revoked and you should be in jail with the rest of the criminals. Your last statement indicates that you plan to also have illegal weapons in your hovel. I hope your probation officer reads these posts, searches your hovel, and you go back to jail. As for your "girl", only a low tramp would be hooked up with a criminal. Hope she goes to jail too.

Your illiteracy speaks for itself. I grew up in a decent home with decent parents and I provided the same for my three children who are now successful adults. Stop using your parents' irresponsibility as an excuse to be a criminal. Grow up, face the consequences of your bad choices, and hush yourself. My life is so far superior to yours that you can't even imagine what my life is like. Suffice it to say that I can legally carry a gun, vote, and that my tax dollars support you and your loser family. Merry Christmas!

There are alot of educated idiots in the world! Education has little to do with trus success. Tired of Silly, may wield a wicked tongue, still her/his heart is cold as ice! He/She has failed to learn that you get more with honey than you do lemons, failed to learn compassion for anyone.

He/she builds themself up by putting others down. I have not read his/her posts in quite awhile, and it is the same old bad mouthing of others. He/she has no children, nope..not a one. He/she might want to get tested for cancer..as all the anger in them, will definitely manifest as such.

Now I know, since I have added my two cents here, he'll/she'll come along and call me all the names she feels entitled to..because only her opinion matters in the world.

Folks listen not to his/her ramblings. He/she has no true understanding, only hatred. I have a hunch they aren't even real..not real at all. And on a forum such as this, there is no way to know, for sure. If he/she is real, I have only pity for such a sad, sad, soul!

Have a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year ALL..

See? They have so much hatred and anger, by their own admission, they need an outlet. Anger is a good motivator, not the best emotion in which to dwell. Better to dwell in gratitude, joy and love..words that I believe are very foreign to them.

Are you a felon as well as being a bible thumping hypocrite? I wouldn't be surprised. Maybe you're on of those infamous jailhouse converts. In any case, your idiotic opinions are of no value to anyone with a brain. Name calling? Have you forgotten what you called my young and beautiful daughter, you dried up old hag? Yes, I have anger toward scum like you. People who blame six year olds for being shot by a madman, people who think they're so holy and pure when in fact they are nothing but liars and hypocrites.....and the felonious scum who whine on this thread because their criminal activities caused them to lose some rights. Oh, and you're also a cyber stalker, prunetwat, following me around topix to spew your inane babbling.

As far as I'm concerned , a felon has lost the right to carry the responsibility of owning firearms .

Why must society continue to dilute punishment incrementally ?
