    Maybe if a convicted felon asked for their gun rights
    back they would immediately get a presidential pardon. lol

    I agree with those who say they should have to petition to have their rights restored, that way each situation is looked at individually, it's quite easy in my book.

    What if ... you went to jail for something as dumb as doing 90 on the freeway and a cop chases you and you didnt immediately pull over and he cites you for attempted evasion of police. You get setenced wrongfully in court are a felon do 6 to a year and get out. Now you cant own a gun?

    So, do you agree that a petition of some sorts would be good?

    hhmmm agree with guardian and others
    probably best to just have the felon file a petition so
    a panel or judge can see and hear what
    the person was convicted for, hear all the details
    and ask the felon some personal questions.

    There has always been a provision for felons to petition the federal government to have their gun rights restored.

    It is my understanding it done/approved on a case by case basis, usually only approved for non-violent felonies, and that it is a little known petition so it isn't applied for very often.

    I can't remember the source I read on this info, but I did read about it several years ago and believed it to be a reputable source. ie, a government publication or something along those lines.

    I think the same thing can be done to restore voting rights!

    Feel free to point out if this is incorrect or post any supporting documentation.

    Sentenced wrongfully?

    Maybe we should give the criminal a lollipop and send him back to mommy.

    Think in some states you can have some of your rights
    given back to you but maybe not all of them like purchasing
    a gun. Not sure on this

    I would prefer to see a petition style system. In my job I work with a lot of people doing community service - often convicted felons who need to wrap up some hours for court fees. I've worked with a large range of persons, all of whom are at least attempting to be "productive members of society".

    Imagining some of them being able to go purchase a gun makes me want to reconsider sleeping at night, but most of them wouldn't bother me. But I should add I work mostly with people who did non-violent or minimal violence crimes. Like bouncing checks or wire fraud.

    Convicted felons should not get their rights back, it should be a strong deterant to anyone without the moral fiber to stay out of trouble to begin with.
    IMO their crimes are not paid for upon completion of their sentence, you can not make repayment for the emotional scars left to the victims. There are no victimless crimes....

    I agree in an absolute three-strikes type of deal for violent felonies. (Not the twisted, insane version California originally had, for example). You badly harm people or society three times, you're eliminated.

    I agree in absolute sentence durations. None of this one-fourth time crap that states deem fit to inflict on society for the worst of the worst, showing that (a) our "justice" system isn't anything of the kind, that (b) a turnstyle is highly efficient when applied to shoveling criminals out the door, and that (c) when parole is applied to violent criminals it is little more than a screw-society-earlier ticket punched by the AG and crammed down our throats.

    But I also agree that, so long as the felony wasn't a member of the "big four" (murder, rape, robbery, aggravated assault), a person's basic rights as a member of society still exist and shouldn't be eliminated. Though, I'm not averse to the "petition" type of system, which would allow a specific evaluation to be performed and judgment to be applied on a case-by-case basis.

    IMO, there can be a balance. So long as certain rational precautions are taken (see above), I see no reason why former criminals must be permanently denied their place in society, so long as there's a balance favoring upstanding peoples' place.
