The point behind forbidding guns to convicted felons isn't to keep them from getting guns, but to provide a fast and effective way of putting them back in jail should they return to a life of violence and crime.

Just to be clear. They return to a life of crime, commit a rape, for instance, and since they are in possession of a gun get convicted both with rape and possession of a gun. Why not just pass a law that states that a felon may not own or be in possession a car?
Law abiding citizens get to undergo a background check to prove that they are not a felon.
