i've also heard that you can still own black powder if you're a excon..
honestly imo.. my understanding of the constitution rather you're a felon or not should not be restricted from gun ownership once freed.
then again firearm laws are unconstitutional as well that does'nt seem to stop them.. except withholding from the mentally ill i believe that is constitutional.
lets face it what we have today is already a shell of the 2nd-A, we're just trying to keep what shreds we have left..
it's damn sad when you really stop and ponder it.
