Yeah, I can't imagine why we don't let criminals have guns in jails and prisons, but for some reason, we don't. The penal institutions of our founding fathers didn't allow weaponry either. Everyone seemed fine with infringing the right.
Seems to me that people lost many of their rights when they became felons .... nowadays, felons get to vote ...... I agree with the poster above that said making nearly everything a felony is just backdoor gun control.
