    Post Court Finds Convicted Felons have Second Amendment Rights

    After today, it's all historical.

    Well, one way to look at it is if the felon served his time, then he's due all his rights back. From the Colonial days to sometime in the 1800's when a jailed person was released his guns were returned to him. Or, if not, that person still had the right to buy more and nothing was done legally to prevent him.

    I'm not sure when this practice stopped, but I'm guessing it was sometime around 1934 when the NFA Act was passed.

    But, that being said, I'm not sure if I agree with this now. I can go either way on this debate.

    With the different versions of a felony, I can see non-violent persons getting their rights back, but violent felons even after time served would be another issue. Of course, most ex-felons (time served and released) these days don't need a constitution to allow them to buy firearms, there is a guy on the corner selling them out of the trunk of their car, no 4473 required.
