Not absurd not paying attention to the last 2 American presidents ?
Yeah voting is more dangerous. It is.
Nope . That applies to ALL felons. As that word has jack snip to do with skin color.

Do you actually think Felons do not own guns? They own plenty of them, mostly stolen as they can not buy a legal one. IMO the best guns to own are not on the books. Why? Because if they have to kill someone to avoid being killed it is a lot easier to get away with it. Where I live there is one neighbor about a mile away. If I have to shoot someone on the property they will NEVER find the body, we have a back hoes.
Now were I The feds I would give non violent felons all their rights back. Then they will own legal guns that ballistics can trace should a body be found.

Oh i forgot to mention.
We need to be careful how we appraoch these issues because this isn't about the felony laws its about the federal government telling the states what to do.
I try not to pay much attention to what American presidents do or say as much as I can so I may have missed something...
Sorry but I can't see any logic on that view.
That would have only a meaning if we were completely blind to the realities of the US legal and prison system workings and demographics. Since I doubt that you are oblivious to those I can extrapolate you are being intentionally insincere
I can't wait for this whole Administration to be over with.
Obama and his whole posse. Gitty up and GTFO.
It gets more evil by the day....
Because if Felons are were not allowed to regain the rights that were removed due to incarceration, then the Govt could move to make as many people Felons as they wanted.

Isn't allowing felons to vote a step towards those very same felons owning guns? For now, they don't have their own voice therefore it's not easy to change things regarding their lives.
Nope because of Holder, and his boss's and parties WELL KNOWN stance on gun ownership.
A step in the right direction would be, 'Felons deserve all of their rights to be restored'.
