bhannah, sorry if I struck a nerve. However I really have no sympathy for the felon who feels "haunted" by what they did. What I do have sympathy for is the victim who has to learn to forgive someone who harmed their family or themselves each day so that they can get through each day and rebuild their lives. I personally am sick of violent criminals being given a second chance to do it again. Committing a crime while using a gun is definitely violent. The consequences of this action is you have given away/forfeited, not had them taken away or had them given away by someone else. The RTC is all about being able to defend your family and yourself in this situation. The criminal is lucky to be alive. What the state is doing to everyone is entirely different, they have taken away the RTC because you might commit a crime, the violent felon who used a gun during a crime, has committed a crime.

No argument there, how about not letting them out in 6-8 months on a 15 year sentance?

Agree with that, but the difference is I believe all have the right.
Why is sticking up a place with a gun any different than a bat?
If the guy bashes in someone’s head with a bat does he loose his bat privileges, how about all these Face book posts that "make" the kids kill themselves, should the poster loose his right to free speech?
The list goes on and on.
No I do not feel sorry for them, not one bit. They did commit a crime, they did their time "paid their debt"
Make the sentence stick,20 years is 20 years..no early release.
I hope you realize the list of felonies is getting longer and longer, you would be surprised what a felony is these days.
Sorry man in my book rights denied is rights denied...
If a felon wants a gun to commit another crime, he sure isn't going to get a FOID, fill out a 4473, have his name called into NIC's and wait 24-72 hours.
No nerve struck, it just bothers me that some come on here and say I support the 2nd, and they do not.
They support what they think the 2nd says, show me where it says in the 2nd a felon cannot own a gun.
the right to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed.
Either you agree or you don't.
It is that simple...
God and the Soldier, all men adore,
In time of danger and not before.
When the danger is passed and all things righted,
God is forgotten, and the Soldier slighted.
"A gun is a tool, Marian. No better, no worse than any other tool. An axe, a shovel, or anything. A gun is as good or as bad as the man using it. Remember that."
Alan Ladd, in the movie Shane (1953).
