    Democratic Restores Rights to Felons

    Oh ho ho ho.

    http://wtop.com/virginia/2016/04/mca...200000-felons/


    [Virginia] Gov. Terry McAuliffe’s order restoring the rights to vote, hold public office, serve on a jury and act as a notary public for all felons who have completed their sentences specifically excludes any changes that would allow felons who have finished serving their entire sentences to “ship, transport, possess, or receive firearms.”
    Now, of course, we all know that Carpetbagger Terry cannot over-ride federal law against felons possessing guns (more's the pity). And, I conclude he was just restoring rights to get more Democrat votes in upcoming presidential election.

    But, what's he gonna say? "I believe felons who've paid their debt to society should have all rights except the right to defend themselves and family?"

    Oh, this oughta be good. If the pro-self-defense world plays this right, I think hyper-partisan McAuliffe can be given a huge black eye. After all, he did say he looked it over thoroughly, consulting constitutional experts.
    I'll make you an offer: I will argue and fight for all of your rights, if you will do the same for me. That is the only way freedom can work. We have to respect all rights, all the time--and strive to win the rights of the other guy as much as for ourselves.

    If I am equal to another, how can I legitimately govern him without his express individual consent?

    There is no human being on earth I hate so much I would actually vote to inflict government upon him.
