  •  Maybe the no-guns-for-felons law (2+ / 0-)

    should be reconsidered. The purpose of the gun laws should be to keep them out of the hands of people who might be expected to shoot other people. That might include those with any record of violence: misdemeanor assault, domestic abuse, a no-contact order, etc. That is an important change that needs to be made.

    Less important, it might not need to include some felons: marijuana possession, embezzlers, forgers, etc. This should be considered along with the restoration of voting rights after felons complete their sentences for those convicted of non-violent crimes. In some parts of the country, being re-integrated back into the community might include going pheasant hunting with friends.
