Second Amendment Reforms and Concerns for 2019

I was unjustly convicted of a crime.

One of the conditions of the current probation period?

I am not allowed to use, possess, or own a firearm.

Even if I deserved the consequence, the crime was a non-violent misdemeanor. Why should I be preluded from owning a firearm to protect myself?

For violent felonies, I can understand a legal stricture to preclude ownership of a firearm. But otherwise, it's nonsensical. The punishment should fit the crime.

And even for violent felony, I would submit that proper redemptive procedures in place would be acceptable. If after a significant period of time a person has demonstrated a clear change of character, then I would see nothing wrong with reversing the preclusion on owning a firearm.

Of course, what politician would run on a platform of "Let criminals have their guns back"? No one.


Another thing ...

President Trump is wrong to allow the Department of Alcohol, Tobacco, and Firearms to ban the use and ownership of bumpstocks. He needs to rescind that policy right away. A large number of lawsuits are hitting this issue head-on, and that's what needs to take place. This is blatantly unconstitutional.

Last of all, it is a travesy that HR 38, aka national reciprocity, never got an up or down vote in the United States Senate. The bill passed by a pretty decent margin before the end of the legislative session. Democrats in the House of Representatives voted for it, too.

Will there be another chance this term? Not at all.

These issues need more attention, and it's time to ensure that the rights of all citizens are better respected!
