Timing of NYT article = Nat'l Right to Reciprocity Vote?
And urge your representatives to vote FOR HR822 tomorrow.
Exercise your 2nd amendment rights....not doing so jeopardizes that right for everyone.

Interesting that the NYT says how data is unavailable but they seem to have no trouble finding many cases to support their views.
It sounds like the system needs fine tuning- or maybe a complete overhaul but the article just seems to try to create a panic

The NYT has not printed a truthful or factual article about firearms in its entire history.

I do find it troubling that this William James Holisky II (of Minnesota), who has mental issues & was convicted of the felony for shooting up the ex-girlfriend's house while drunk, was able to finagle at least a partial restoration of his rights to firearms.
Do we fight for the rights of the many, allowing the few who, arguably, don't seem to deserve those rights?
"Historical examination of the right to bear arms, from English antecedents to the drafting of the Second Amendment, bears proof that the right to bear arms has consistently been, and should still be, construed as an individual right." -- U.S. District Judge Sam Cummings, Re: U.S. vs Emerson (1999)

There is nothing in the constitution regarding who may keep and bear arms, except that the constitution apllies to citizens. I don't like that violent felons can have any of their citizenship rights restored.

It could be worse!

Lots of smoke - where's the fire?
What will stop any felon from getting a firearm upon release if they really want one? Whether they get their rights restored and legally possess a gun, or they just buy one in the back alley, the person with criminal intent will do what they want to do.
The examples given in the article are the very marginal examples. Meant to create more Fear, Uncertainty, and Doubt.
The only common sense gun legislation was written about 224 years ago.
I carry always not because I go places trouble is likely, but because trouble has a habit of not staying in its assigned zone.

Agreed, I don't think too many criminals get their guns from the store...at least not when it's open.

NYT = Tobacco smoke enema - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia Also works well for lining birdcages or wrapping fish entrails.

I've decided about the article, seems well researched; I don't believe this is the first time I've heard of this. also it is a logical outcome of states deciding reinstatement of permits, for there are scores of States with varying degrees of foresight and the even-handedness and intelligence inherent in Heller regarding gun-policy. I do not want the man sitting next to me with major felonies and/or major evidence of serious mental illness to have a legal gun. It is not safe for me, family or others. Politics of gun-issues? : of interest to me only in so far as it corresponds to reality.

Bloomberg, a supposed Republican, gave the anti-gun Dem candidate for Mayor of Indianapolis (who thankfully lost) $25,000 because she said she would join his anti-gun Mayors against illegal guns group if she won. Thankfully, one of the only things I like about Indiana is these Hoosiers like their guns. They saw through her BS and know Bloomberg is a BS artist, RINO and anti-gun. She got her butt handed to her.
