First off, drunk driving is not a nonviolent crime. Many people die from it. I got hit by a drunk driver last year...luckily I did not get seriously hurt, but my car got totaled and I got a # check from insurance. Victimless crime my ass.
Secondly, a felony is a SERIOUS offense, used for repeat offenders and serious crimes against another person.
If someone has been caught drunk driving 4 times, damn right I want them treated as a second class citizen when it comes to the roadways
If someone has been in jail for violent felony, no way in hell do I want them having access to an unrestricted weapon immediately out of prison. That is just dumb. You can tell how dumb because no one else is here helping you two defend this silly claim.
Im sorry, just because you do your punishment does not mean your original crime just "goes away". Many times people are let out of prison early, because our prison are bursting at the seams. People like you, saltheart, want less debt and government spending, but then you wonder aloud why the prison system would let out people early who are not reformed.....cant you see the flawed logic?
