Not all scumbags have felony convictions, as all bad guys are not behind bars.Some scumbags have no record as they haven't been caught yet. Each case should be judged on their own merits.Just goes to show you that anyone, regardless of a felony conviction or not, can get a gun...

Yep, they can. No reason to legalize possession of guns by felons though.

On the other hand, if we can trust certain convicted felons with release, then why not let them have a gun? If they cant be trusted to legally own a weapon, then why are we letting them out?

"We" are letting them out because the political pukes we elected say that due to prison overcrowding they have to let violent felons go. Got to make room for kids who were convicted of drug possession.

In any event, I'm secure in the fact that convicted felons will not be able to legally buy guns any time soon.

And I'm secure in the fact that they will still obtain them illegally but its a moot point because I know what will happen to them should they try to enter my home.

Default Should convicted felons be permitted to own firearms?

Should convicted felons be permitted to own firearms? Why or why not?

(I wanted to put this in the Legal forum, but it seems I'm not permitted to post there.)
