without due process of law


Boom, answered in the law.

Look, I find it touching and admirable you want to give the felons their "right" to have guns back.

But the rest of us just aren't having it. So just don't hold your breath on it.

Nope.

Because I and millions of others have never seen a day in a court of law.

But then again why is whataboutism being championed?

A person did x.

Paid their debt to society.

Paid in full those rights should be restored.

As both the 8th and 14th clearly say.

Nor deny any person EQUAL protection under the law.

Don't ignore it.

I'm not, I'm disagreeing. Give them their freedom and voting back after they serve their time, deal.

Guns? No deal. They can still bare arms, we don't amputate those.

I just looked it up.

1968 is the year they started violating felons 8th and 14th amendment rights.

So for 192 years it wasn't a problem.

For over 222 years the back ground check didn't exist since it was created in 1998 when the NCIS was implemented.

Odd how this country ever survived without either.

Loss of right to possess firearms Since 1968,[20] felons are regarded by the federal government, and most US states, as being "prohibited persons" under US law (18 U.S.C. § 922(g)). It is a class C felony punishable by up to 10 years in prison under this subsection "to ship or transport in interstate or foreign commerce, or possess in or affecting commerce, any firearm or ammunition; or to receive any firearm or ammunition which has been shipped or transported in interstate or foreign commerce." This has been litigated before the Supreme Court. However, the Court upheld the regulation.[citation needed]

The cognitive dissonance is dumbfounding.

Because they use the 14th to 'give' them back their voting right.

Well we have over 300 million people. Times change, we can change with them.

I for one am cool with violent offenders not being able to have guns, they gave that up when they were a menace to society.

I'll meet you half way, non violent maybe can get a gun if everyone votes and are cool with it.

The whole felon thing is another trojan horse thing.

Just by reading this thread, you can see it's working.

The name a felon has been reserved for the worst of the worst.

Now, everything that can be made illegal can be added to the list.

Take mj for example.

Now mj is OK to remove your right to self defense.

Now that felons are cool to take your rights, it's cool to take your rights for certain misdemeanors.

What's next, speeding tickets?

Prior prescriptions that were FDA approved?

They are playing all sides, wake up sheeple.

No one is saying take them all away, but in some way those rights are privileges, just as freedom is


Nope.

They are RIGHTS.

Not privileges.


Tell that to felons, see how far that gets you and them.

Felons have very little rights
The right to bare arms was taken from them when the felon was convicted
Done
Next

This....what? Jesus man.

Individual rights. Why does the mob get to decide?

Inalienable rights being put to vote....ive heard it all now.

If someone commits a violent felony it is what it is.

Like I said before, if you want to restore someone's life back to normal pre-offence like nothing happened.... Pedophiles could work in day cares.

So let's stop pretending that there aren't going to be ramifications for decisions.

When someone serves their sentence, the debt is paid. If the debt is not paid, they should not be done serving their sentence.

This crap about tracking people once they are released is a drain on our economy and promotes more crime. If you have a problem with not enough beds (when we have more beds available than any other nation on Earth) then that indicates you have too much law enforcement going on and something needs to change.

Pedophiles...why are they ever let out of prison again? For the life of me I cannot reconcile why on Gods green Earth we release them from prison, then make them register to be second class citizens for the rest of their lives. Talk about cruel and unusual punishment....for the public. Because who hires pedos? So we release them from prison to register as second class citizens just so the public can then pay to support them anyway? How logical is that?

When people walk out of prison, the debt should be paid. If it isn't, don't let them walk out.

Ill also point out: you were talking about voting to ajudicate the inalienable rights of nonviolent offenders. This is what my comment was in regards to.

My whole point is everyone should be able to vote when they're done... Hell I'm cool with then voting while they're in prison.

But I don't buy into violent criminals being able to own a firearm again. I think most would agree with that.
