Convicted felons are just that.....FELONS! If someone commits a serious crime (a felony), that should have to pay for it. What the hells the difference between a bow and a firearm! Both can be considered a dangerous weapon. Would you like to have an arrow shot at you, heaven forbid it hit you. We are splitting hairs here. While not concealable, a bow is just as dangerous as a gun. In the wrong hands, its lethal! A lot of this discussion is about the moralistic ideas of crime and punishment, of which we as a civilization (and a nation) have not been able to agree on for centuries.
Guess I don't have to tell you my opinion.
