So...if a person gets busted for smoking pot 20 years ago, that should be held against them for the rest of their lives? I would consider that cruel and unusual punishment.
There is also the matter of the class of people in this country who are above the law a.k.a. the very rich/politicians/law enforcement officers, ya know, the ones who rarely get charged for breaking the law, and even if they do, are even more rarely convicted of anything.

I’m Conservative too, but I’m also human. Not everyone who breaks the law is a scumbag. Prisons don’t try to rehab anyone, the punishment is the time spent behind prison walls. In my world, if a person breaks the law and gets convicted, he goes to jail for a specified period of time, but once he is released (and not on parole), then he should have all rights restored, because he has paid his debt to society. If people feel as tho criminals should have to pay more, then keep them in jail longer.

I have also been a victim of crime. I let the courts deal with it. The matter was resolved. I suppose I could still play the victim card and whine about what was done in the courts, but I don’t. I moved on. Victims of crimes can remain victims of crime if they wish, or they can live their lives.

A long time ago someone was about to be stoned to death for breaking a law, until someone suggested that the first stone should be thrown by someone who hadn’t sinned....

So in your world all violent felons who have done their time and are off of parole would have the right to firearms. That is part of the rights that they loose that you say you want restored. Great point of view for all the potential dead folks who cross them.
You are not conservative, you are crazy!!!!! You probably need to put a sign on your lawn that advertises a room for rent for all off parole child molesters for the room right next to your daughter's. You can live with them and I can live without them and I will be just fine. I am not now and will never be a victim. I am a legally armed citizen. God did not make all men equal, Sam Colt did. We live a long ways from the nearest cop. The last time we had trouble where shots were fired it took over 40 minutes for Law Enforcement to get here. Cops are the folks who draw the lines around the bodies when they finally show up. And people like you want to put guns back into the hands of prior violent fellons. Dude, you are totally F-ing insane. You have clearly shown yourself to be the biggest bleeding heart liberal I have ever talked to on here. I'm done with you. You really need to take a look at some conservative doctrine so you can be a little more believable next time.
