Yes I admit it. I'm a Violent felon. I was convicted of an assault charge in 2009 which happened in 2008. I spent six months in jail and three years
on probation without any problems. I was younger dumb and a little out of control. I made a mistake and paid for it dearly. I lost everything on top
of everything I just described. My life is not an easy road now and I Have no constitutional rights now. I want to open a discussion about the rights
of felons for a few reasons.
The government is no longer limited in its authority over my life. A simple background check or name ran puts my life at risk every time. This is
disturbing on many levels. I could essentially be put in jail for anything and because of my record my testimony will not be upheld in court. I know I
know... This is my fault. But I'm an American citizen!
I can't own a gun. Well, apparently the constitution only protects those in favor of the courts. If you can't see how this is flawed then I don't know
what to tell you. Think in today's judicial prejudice how easy it is to fall out of favor with the courts.
This is pretty much my biggest gripe. How is it that the constitution was written to limit the authority of the government but it doesn't limit the
authority of the government for those who commit crimes? The same government who defines the crime.... How is this possible?
If we change any law to create a crime that shouldn't be a crime can we effectively eliminate all gun owners by removing their rights for commiting a
crime deemed worthy of the elimination of constitutional rights? Was this document created to apply to everyone within the republic or only those
Before you respond please keep in mind that I am a pretty good person and I really just want my rights and my life back.
