It's not like you're missing out on much w/o the right to vote, as it doesn't count anyway. But I do agree w/you that the term "felony" is too broad, and concerning firearms it should be on a case by case basis.

Just look at the courts throwing guys away for years for passing a few dollars worth of ba checks. Look at what it costs tax payers for a $100 check. The government wont stop till everyone has a record so everyone is "in the system" LEOs will take people in for almost anything JUST TO FINGERPRINT AND TAKE PICTURES in Vegas they take people in for j walking and do this then let them go with a ticket.

What state are you referring too? Here in Ca. Felons CAN vote. (You just have to be discharged from state parole)
Guns are a no no for felons throughout the U.S.

As CA. Has the largest population in the nation both civilian & prisons your thread title is misleading & incorrect. If referring to just NY, it would be nice to through NY in there.

Here is the magic sentence for all of this. "LAWS ONLY EFFECT PEOPLE WHO ARE WILLING TO FOLLOW THEM!!"

Ban cars then only criminals will drive and the rest suffers.
Ban guns and only criminals have guns and the rest suffer the consequences.
Ban food and only criminals eat and everyone starves.

But at what point are people willing to say "if I must be a criminal to eat then so be it"

The thing is less than 1% of the population is regulating the 99% based on the 99% doing everything they can to live their life legally.
