I failed to mention that the federal government left themselves a out on felons in possession of firearms. Federally it is legal for a felon to be in possession of a antique firearm or a replica. In addition that the firearm rights can easily be restored in most cases. Some states have laws against felons possessing antique firearms and replicas, IMO these laws are unconstitutional because of the 10th as well as the 2nd amendments. Which fall unto the states because of the 14th amendment.

TBR, can you tell us how it was possible for Adam Lanza to take firearms into Sandy Hooks School when it was a felony to do so?

Because of liberal unconstitutional laws used to take guns away from people who after they serve their time OBEY THE LAW. Otherwise the laws are meaningless, because only law abiding citizens follow the law.

They are the stupidest laws on the books and in most cases not even enforced.

Felony gun laws have one main purpose, to deprive citizens of their right to bear arms. To take gun rights away, just make more felonies, it is absolute bullshit to get around the second amendment. Their rights have been taken away while in prison because they were taken to trial and then sentenced, that is all part of due process. It ends when they have served all of their time.

Okay, if that is the case, why do felons lose their right to own firearms?

TBR it most certainly does, you forget about due process? There is nothing in the constitution about citizens that have gone through due process becoming less than citizens, with less rights.

I tend to agree also.

However, that is not the subject at hand.

Where in the constitution does it say that felon's rights to firearms shall be infringed until they serve their time?

"And yes I believe felons have as much right once they serve their time to bear arms. I mean that is why we send them to prison, to atone for their crimes."

I am of the same opinion. If a person isn't fit to reenter society with all their rights, then they need to be kept locked up.

"Once they serve their time..."

Funny, I don't see that phrase anywhere in the constitution...

Chicago just logged it's 500th death by firearm this year. The city with probably the most regulated firearms laws in this country. All those laws to keep the law abiding citizen from owning firearms in order to protect themselves.
