I started this before I was aware of the 25 post rule, but am past it now. No doubt a moderator or admin will come along soon and move the thread. Thanks in advance to 'em.

Thanks also to Canebrake. (He knows why. )

Just an FYI. This is a gun forum that has an L&P section - not the reverse. The mods are watchful of folks that only post in L&P...

Convicted felons shouldn't be allowed to breath let alone own anything in my eyes.

they are nothing more than a waste of space and should be restricted to the amount of O2 they are allowed to use in a year.

That's not the same question. That thread is "Is there any way a person convicted of a felony to legally possess a firearm or are they just banned from ownershp?"

My question is whether or not rights should be automatically restored.

I think they should. If a person has been to prison and is released, served their probation honorably and has complied with all sentencing requirements, their debt to society has been paid. Right?

Why shouldn't they automatically be bestowed all rights and privileges that every other free citizen enjoys?

They lost those basic rights when they decided to commit their crime. That is part of the consequences. Besides, if they've done it once, would they not be more likely to do it again? ANd you want to legally hand them a gun?

Got to agree with that. That's certainly true of most folks convicted of felonies.

If there isn't enough confidence in them to permit them to legally own a firearm, a right which extends to all free citizens under the Constitution, then shouldn't they still be in prison?

If there is enough confidence in them to release them back into society as free citizens, shouldn't they enjoy all of the same rights and privileges as the rest of the free citizens?
