Poll: Should Non-Violent Felons Be Allowed to Own Guns?
As our judicial system currently stands, when you are convicted of a felony, you give up certain rights. It doesn’t matter if the felony was a victimless crime or a violent crime.
Our poll for today deals with the rights of non-violent felons. When voting keep in mind, we are talking about non-violent crimes here. Maybe someone got lost driving through Virginia and accidentally entered Washington DC with an otherwise legal handgun in their car and gets pulled over.
Maybe someone had a felony amount of marijuana for personal use in their college dorm room, but hasn’t been in trouble in 20 years since.
Maybe someone didn’t pay their taxes.
Whatever the scenario, we’re talking people with no history of violence here.
Do you feel that people convicted of such crimes should have their right to own a firearm restored upon finishing their sentences?
Note, poll is not scientific and may not update in real time.
