FL: New Bill Would Allow Felons to Own Guns

A new bill filed earlier this month could make it easier for convicted felons to have their voting and gun rights restored.
The bill, HB 903, was filed on Dec. 6 by State Rep. Cord Byrd (R-Neptune Beach) would allow judges to restore the rights of felons after they've completed prison sentences and probation.
Florida currently prohibits convicted felons from owning firearms or voting.

Common law provides that once a person has "paid his debt" to society, that obligation is OVER.

I understand the need to keep recidivist bad actors disarmed, but no law can do that, and "feel-good" laws that negatively affect people who are NOT recidivist bad actors are profane. They defy the whole concept of our system of individual liberty, responsibility and just restitution.

All the mischief makers have to do to sweep whole classes of people from RKBA is to redefine what constitutes a "felony". For example (and I'll admit that this is an unlikely extreme one), what if the PTB decide that spitting on the sidewalk is a felony?

Are you following me here? They use sleight-of-hand to impose their ridiculous restrictions.

I say, NO.
