Actually you can shout FIRE! in a crowded theater. If there is no cause for your action you will be held accountable for any damage, injuries, or deaths that result from your action.
I have used this EXACT same example on many a liberal! There is absolutely NO LAW that says you cannot yell fire in a crowded theater - if there was such a law then it would be illegal for you to warn others who were trapped in an actual theater fire.
Same thing on the RKBA - there is no reason to not allow felons to protect themselves. Hell, up until the early 1900's, in Texas, all prisoners were released from prison with $10, a horse, a rifle and 10 rounds! Because it was unthinkable to put a man out of prison in the middle of nowhere without giving him a basic package to survive.
If the person is SO dangerous that you cannot trust them outside of prison to act as a responsible citizen, then they should still be in prison! Otherwise, let them get on with their lives; including voting and gun ownership! If they return to a life of crime, then put them back in jail - duh!
I have a family member who, at a young age, under a drug, alcohol and girlfriend induced stupor attempted armed robbery. He spent six years in prison. After his departure from prison, he has NEVER had a single incident with the law (other than the occasional traffic ticket).
After getting out, he got married, had two children (one of which is in the Air Force), he started a construction business, bought 24 acres of land and built his home/workshop from ground up. He is member of his local church, a pillar of his community and volunteers to help the elderly keep their homes in good repair!
This man who means so much to those around him and his community cannot vote, nor LEGALLY protect his wife and children! How does that benefit society? How does that benefit him? If we have an "...unalienable right to life..." then how can the government remove the best means to ENSURE this said "unalienable right?"

Nice post. Wish you could influence my two Dem ex-Marines friends who give me grief over practically everything I believe, I still like their companionship and still am praying.
