PROHIBIT GUNS TO VIOLENT FELONS ONLY
The non-violent felons need protection from the violent ones. There is no reason a person who has not abused a gun to be prohibited from enjoying the sport of hunting, or target shooting, or protecting his or her family.
The Supreme Court has allowed a citizen’s second amendment rights to be abridged if he or she commits a violent misdemeanor or felony. Violence is the operative word. This opens the way for the Court or the Congress to allow a person who commits a nonviolent misdemeanor or felony to continue to enjoy second amendment rights.
