    This might be a good ideal. But one thing what felon is going to get a drivers license.

  2. MrPingn says:

    Other people have …
    Other people have rights too. An employer has the right to know if the person applying for the job has a criminal background. If they commit the crime. It is part of their punishment that they cannot do certain things. Yes they have privacy but they must be checked to a degree. Though if they do this there should be a way to deal with discrimination. But then again we already have that problem. Would it be that much of a change? Truly reformed criminals are being denied honest jobs.

    yes, nobody can believe about this quickly. Listen, i really didn’t expect that this site would send me a check of $240 for doing some surveys. i found it here: bit.ly/116qQFc?=iqtpi

    Yankee, innocent people are sometimes subject to wrong judgment….

    You have a great …
    You have a great idea. Add something to a driver’s license which identifies someone as a felon, but a simple modification would please everyone who is worried about the rights of felons. A simple red F in a circle in the corner of the license would do it. That way the clerk who is cashing a check would be oblivious. There. Now that we’ve solved the world’s gun problems we can move on to the next topic.

    The problem is …
    The problem is there are too many ridiculous felonies:

    NC – It is a felony to steal more than $1000 of grease
    TX – A felony charge can be levied for owning more than six dildos
    WA – Harassing Bigfoot, Sasquatch or other undiscovered subspecies is a felony punishable by a fine and/or imprisonment
    UT – It is a felony to tread on the cracks between paving stones

    The list goes on and on. People shouldn’t be lumped in with rapists and murders because they have lots of dildos, or steal grease…

    Or we should be like Germany and permanently revoke their licenses.

  8. Ehtereon11B says:

    Gun Control …
    Gun Control advocates by and large refuse to stigmatize anyone different or special. But they will demonize gun owners all day.

    That is a really awesome solution! Glad the background check got voted down, but this video really shows just how over complicated our system is in D.C- big fan of your channel, I respect the manner in which you present things- keep it up!

    Or maybe keep the ID looking normal, just add an F to it. Less embarassment but still shows the felony.

    Thats actually a pretty good idea.

  12. Dr. BS Boliver Shagnasty says:

    Great idea! We need …
    Great idea! We need more common sense approaches to complex problems. My Dad was found of saying “Keep it simple stupid.” (yes, mostly to me) I’ve found out over the years that this is the first course of action to take before going into a brain-numbing tirade of ideas!

    You expect me to have sympathy for a drunk driver? I say lock them up and throw away the key.

    Don’t give the politicians ideas…

  15. Mad Dawg says:

    While I am not for …
    While I am not for giving hard core felons [felons accused of violent acts or crimes committed to get or with a gun in hand] ; yes- to an extent, I do actually agree that after a certain period it’s reasonable to return certain felons[those with lesser convictions only] their rights– i.e. say 10 years after you finish your probation/jail time. The minute they get out– nope. Your right to protect yourself and family at home are valid points…

  16. MountainRecluse says:

    I wasn’t addressing …
    I wasn’t addressing “non-violent, no crimes for 20 years felons.” But realistically, TPTB are working overtime to turn ALL OF US, even the normally law-abiding, as felons for something. Coming to the point where following and defending the Constitution is becoming a felony…..

  17. Mad Dawg says:

    If you are a felon …
    If you are a felon &you feel that your loss of your right to vote &your right to having guns removed is a problem for your group- then form your own lobbyist group & push your agenda. I am sure that some politician in DC will gladly accept your funds; not sure how much credence they will give your cause, but I am sure that they will take your money.Hint: Democrats will likely be your best bet; if you tell them you will vote Democratic once your rights get re-established. They enjoy sob stories.

  18. MountainRecluse says:

    But going over the …
    But going over the speed limit is not a felony….

    Comitting a felony, in most cases, takes some serious, deliberate action and crime. Much more intentional breaking of the law and going out of your way to breaking it and possibly harming others than accidentally doing 65-70 on a 55 mph highway.

  19. hasbrouckj9 says:

    I disagree I have …
    I disagree I have never driven Drunk because I am a responsible adult, neither have I committed a felony amazing how being responsible and adult simultaneously leaves me with all of my rights, if however you abuse your rights you lose them. Or if you prove you can’t be trusted with your rights you lose them. Or if you give them up in court you lose them. I am not taking away your gun rights you are giving them up freely.

  20. hasbrouckj9 says:

    I am being …
    I am being sarcastic but, people would make an argument to this effect if that was ever proposed. I tried to sound like I wasn’t making sense but sarcasm doesn’t always carry in print.

  21. Roy Poud says:

    you guys aint “pro …
    you guys aint “pro-gun”. yer jus for guns for yer kind. thats hardly american. but typical for americans. maybe a guy copped to a guilty plea, so hes guilty on paper,butstill didnt do anything,,,,,,is this person realy that dangerous? or is he just a member of a group that has no nra or other group to protect his/her rights. if ill always be a fellon,, then maybe you will always be a drunk driver,so you cant drive ever again. see how dumb it looks?im as likly not to harm a person as you.

  22. Roy Poud says:

    felon= breaking …
    felon= breaking glass in a building at night. felon=stealing candybar from store shelf at night. and lots more.. you fkn idiots. a felon is just yer neighbor that got caught,unlike you. and if i did a felony in 1978 and now im over 50 y o, am i still a felon? i dont thik so.”well if the libs want to take guns,,let em take them from felons,,after all they aint us”. umm,wheres my right to protect my self and famiy? gun nuts do the same as the libs.its ok as long as you dont take em from us

    I love that red id card, it would work

    My beliefs on …
    My beliefs on felons rights are well documented, but are not relevant to this topic. If you want to know what they are watch this…
    /watch?v=14zwpUTxwDc

  25. hasbrouckj9 says:

    You realize that …
    You realize that felons have rights, rights for people to not know that they have committed and been convicted of felonies beyond a reasonable doubt, and its not fair. Its fair to make no one buy a gun but not fair to make someone have a identification that is public record. And because its unfair its immoral. (note many brain cells were harmed in the making of this post).
