Agree. This is exactly the bunch the law is supposed to keep guns away from owning. I would imagine after a few months in prison a guy knows who to see if he wants a gun when he gets out.
For those who support some "reasonable" restrictions, exactly which guns laws passed after 1934 is keeping us safer and is worth burdening or prohibiting law abiding citizens?
I have a problem with any law that prohibits possession of an item rather than the irresponsible or violent behavior if the individual. And if the feared behavior is already illegal then why restrict the item?
