    I don't think they would go after anyone, but given that it's a Republican bill some skepticism may be warranted.

    That being said, I don't think the basic idea is bad. I think that if a state has standing law that felons are prohibited firearms that they ought to know, and that the state has an interest in such a prohibition. If there are felons out there who pose no danger (ridiculous war on drugs laws come to mind), then the case could be made for being more precise.

    If we cannot make our communities safer with the Congress we have now, we will use every means available to make sure we have a different Congress. – Gabrielle Giffords
