    And how it makes us feel safe up till we realize that really violent felons can cause harm WITHOUT a gun, even - thus, isn't it better just to keep them locked UP? ;)

    A response to a story in the local paper: A guy given a "life sentence" :rolleyes: in 1982 was paroled last year, and just recently pretty much caved a woman's face in with his bare hands! :what:

    So far:

    What is the purpose of having a law prohibiting felons from having guns? To protect the public? Do they?

    Laws that do not do what they are purported to do should not be laws. Laws that encourage people to be in denial should not be laws. Some felons were never threats to the public in the first place. I have no quarrel with Martha Stuart having a gun if she wants one.

    Other felons are threats to the public no matter the law. Hasn't armoredman said, “People ask my why I carry a gun, and I say, ‘I have looked into the face of Evil, and Evil is getting out on parole next Tuesday.’”
