    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.

    Personally, I think the distinction is meaningless. I think all crimes should be felonies. The only reason we have classes of misdemeanors and felonies is to sort out equivalencies of punishment.

    Just as I wrote that no one accidentally commits a felony, guess what? No one accidentally commits a misdemeanor, either.
    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.

    Dumb Laws in North Carolina. Crazy North Carolina Laws. We have weird laws, strange laws, and just plain crazy laws!

    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.

    In an effort to appear tough on crime governments are making more and more crimes felonies. Its only a matter of time before we are all felons.

    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?

    Because if we had opened a new one we would have been trashed for not taking advantage of the search feature.

    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?

    The loss of the rights to own certain weapons because of a felony is a fairly recent happening. Prior to the 1968 federal gun law felons were allowed to own firearms. Now more recently we have allowed the government to take away those rights from people who commit certain misdemeanors.
    Am I the only one that notices a trend here?

    felons to legally have guns either.
    In NC it is a felony for a someone to have a firearm
    on any school grounds I believe. Even if they have a permit.
    IF so my thought is say a permit holder crossed through a campus
    with a concealed gun and for whatever reason gets caught then
    they should never be able to have a gun again. Sounds extreme
    to me. But if someone wants a gun whether a felon or not or legal
    or not they can get one anyway.

    WOW you hit that right on the head. That is what happened to me. No prior record now I can't own a firearm. I never served any jail time but now I am one of the "bad" guys?

    You mean, a guy who didn't get caught would get his gun back? I mean, there's no way to really prove that you behaved well. It just means nobody caught you behaving badly. Am I right?
