I always excperience frustrated anger when I read this type of stuff.

I was a stupid 20yr old in 1969 and ended up with a felony.

Doesn't matter what .. it just is.

In 1968, because of the NRA, a felon was barred from possesion of a gun.

Now ... after 43 years of law abiding citizenship, if I plink out my rural back yard, I'm a criminal, good for a ten year bit if caught.

Every counsel I've ever initiated always sums up to, "nothing yiou can do about it"

..And the words used in our founding documents seem pretty dogmatic.

shall not be infringed

unless due process negates this natural right

I understand your situation and I agree that one shouldn't have their 'rights' taken away. Either you or any other felon should have the ability to defend themselves.

I recall a few years ago that Redskins safety Sean Taylor was killed in his house by robbers. He was a felon, and wasn't allowed to own a firearm, so the best he had to defend himself and his girlfriend was a machete.
