the same logic we all use here on FreeRepublic
Some. Not all. IMHO the second amendment is a right, the voting franchise is a privilege, and the idea of child visitation rights for a convicted rapist is an abomination.

(Just my opinions)

Just so y'all know, see my comment #30 above, I agree with you guys.
I was only pointing out that it seems a majority of FReepers have taken a seemingly different position when it's a firearms crime.
It appears however that THIS thread has a very different consensus, which agrees with my own personal one, that:
- The crime was heinous
- The light sentence was a complete miscarriage of justice
- Allowing the perp access to the victim and her child is unjustified
- If there's any case to be had, it should be that the victim should ask that the sentence be reviewed and the perp get some serious jail time.
It complicates things that she's been accepting the child support. Maybe she can return it, in trade for putting the scum behind bars.
