This is a discussion on NC Supreme Court restores felon's gun rights within the The Second Amendment & Gun Legislation Discussion forums, part of the Related Topics category; Bingo!...
Intentionally writing bad checks is a felony. Does that deserve being prohibited from owning firearms for life? Violent felonies, yes. Non-violent felonies? Depends on the nature of the crime.

Nothing in any law has any exceptions for various types or levels of felony. It's a felony it's done with intent and adjuticated in a court of law and the defendant is found guilty. It's on you and, you own it for the rest of your life. It is not a traffic citation. That's just the way it is and sadlysometimes life is unfare, but it is about personal responsibility.

Dumb Laws in South Carolina. Crazy South Carolina Laws. We have weird laws, strange laws, and just plain crazy laws!
I've done at least 4 of those, and had no idea. And, I KNOW that NOBODY in SC follows the law about blind intersections; because it's illegal to discharge a firearm inside city/town limits. So, with that, you're breaking a law by following another? Doesn't make any sense.

And, at least one here. That's just the two states that I'm frequently in- not even the states that I don't go to but could be committing crimes based on their laws.
Take a look at the Arizona link and see what you find that YOU may have done. Or know someone that has and didn't know about it.

Please take everything I say with at least one grain of salt- I am a very sarcastic person with a very dry sense of humor.

Just did just what you said. The last law says that it is illegal for a woman to wear pants in Tucson. The wife is on her way home and we live in Tucson.........what should I do?
Don't tread on me or mine.
I am comfortable laying on a rock in the sun; bothering no one. If you choose to ignore the above statement, you will wish all you had to do, is deal with a snake.
Why are we resurrecting a two year old thread?
Restore their voting rights too, heck let them vote in prison and in jails. Do u think they will vote liberal? This country is going further and further down the drain every day....
Lossing part of ones civil rights is a part of being a convicted of a violent crime. What about the victims rights and the part of their life that was lost including complete loss of life, do they get that back?
Am I the only one that notices a trend here?
