Good comment Doug! I remember when Clinton got the ball rolling for "Domestic Violence". He passed the law in a fashion so it could not be called "Ex Post Facto" and it affected anyone that had already been convicted of "said crimes". With that said, with the stroke of a pen literally millions of Americans became "felons" in the sense of the term since they could no longer own or possess firearms. We had several people on the submarine I was on that all of a sudden could not work any security involving a firearm. Imagine one of your duties during security alerts or missile launches is the guy with the shotgun or M-14 in the missile house and now you cannot do your job because of some past transgression that all of a sudden removes your rights.
