Yeah, folks jump on gun boards and advocate for the Second Amendment "rights" of criminals. IMO: That makes us all look like knuckle draggers. Those who believe that felons have a right to own firearms should work a couple years in a prison as a corrections officer. Prisons are not about "rehabilitation", they are about locking folks up. Young first offenders often idolize career criminals who talk about getting over on the "man": Most leave prison as savvy educated criminals. i've seen newly released young inmates cry because they were leaving all their friends. Prisons are the largest industry in the USA. There is a federal program that allows convicted felons to petition for restoration of their Second Amendment rights. The names of those whose gun rights were restored was printed in the Congressional register. The program was de-funded in 1992 because too many felons with restored gun rights went on to commit violent crimes, including rape, kidnapping and murder. BTW: Allan Gottlieb of SAF is a convicted felon whose gun rights were restored after a conviction for tax evasion.
