Once someone has served their time, including parole, they should be able to vote. If they are working then they are being taxed. To not let them vote is taxation without representation. As for owning a gun my feeling is if they can't be trusted with a gun they should not be trusted to own a hammer, baseball bat, knife, drive a car or even be allowed in society. To answer the question before someone posts it, I have never been arrested much less convicted of a crime.

If you cannot trust them with a gun, how can you trust them to vote? Stupid voters have done much more damage than stupid gun owners. When they commited their felony, they forfieted certain rights. It is called punishment.

Convicted felons may petition a court to have their rights restored if they have truly made amends and a new life for themselves. It should not be automatic, especially after more than one conviction.

The New York Times caused a sensation with its kazillion-word, March 17 article by Michael Luo on the failures of state courts to get guns out of the hands of men in domestic violence situations.

The main purpose of the article was to tweak America's oldest civil rights organization, the National Rifle Association, for opposing some of the more rash anti-gun proposals being considered by state legislatures, such as allowing courts to take away a person's firearms on the basis of a temporary restraining order.

It's a new position for liberals to oppose the rights of the accused....
