So I can get my gun rights back so long as my felony conviction did not include using the gun as part of the crime.
Oh and you might want to read this. The very same courts that allow criminals to go free also do this:
An older article but you get my drift.
O-matic? Gun rights can and are restored in many states - heck in some state the "right" is restored automatically in just 3 years. Thank God NC is not THAT lenient!
Justice Scalia has said publicly that gun "rights" can be restricted - he said it on Fox News.
Stop with the NRA nonsense.
One of the reasons I don't fear the government taking my guns is because quite frankly I know how to get them. But the MAIN reason is? Government knows that it exists because of the Constitution, and our rights are protected by the very same document that allows our government to exist.
In over 240 years we've had no reason to fear the government. They've always had more weapons than we do - we're always outgunned.
Obama is no different than any other previous President.
I want my name on a list of gun owners and CWP holders - I don't care if that list is public or not but I sure as heck want the LEO's to know there's guns in my home - how many and what type. If I ma not at home and a criminal gets in, gets past my dog, gets past the locker lock, gets past the trigger locks, and holds up in my house. I want the LEOs to know what they might be up against.
Do you know why? I AM a law abiding citizen and I have nothing to fear.
