IMO if the felon has served their time, and completed all of the post incarceration requirements they should have ALL of their rights restored. Either they've paid their debt to society or they haven't. If they have then be done with it, they're not a felon anymore, period; remove the label from them and maybe they can get on with their life as a LAC. If we're going to continue to deprive them of essential rights and keep them labeled then perhaps they should all stay in prision or be executed.
The problem is that many commit crimes again and once released work harder at not getting caught the nexttime.
What permanant punishment is there after a felony conviction?
We all know the following
- Cannot possess a firearm (But they can have a black powder pistol)
- The cannot vote
- Their record prevents them from getting certain jobs
What others are there?
#1. They really cannot BUY a gun from a dealer but can still do so privately so this means nothing unless they are caught.
#2. Many people choose not to vote anyway so to some... they could care less.
#3.There are plenty of other jobsout there and many criminals go back to crime anyway.
