That is all I have to say on this subject.

He was a convicted felon and he was carrying an unregistered weapon. "Impulse" isn't evenRead More part of this equation. He deserves to stay right where he is.

Do you also realize how very easy it is to earn a felony? DUI, (not just for drugs but alcohol too, folks), petty theft, multiple violations of certain vehicle codes, marijuana possession- all subject to the possibility of being a felony offense. I am sure each and every one of you has a friend or family member with a felony on their resume, whether you know it or not. Perhaps these "criminals" were collecting a paycheck for services rendered. Not collecting "improper payments". Where did it say these people had submitted falsified timesheets? Or stolen identities? Where exactly would you allow these people to work upon rehabilitation? Last time I checked, caregivers for the low-income portion of society were greatly needed. This is a job that can be grueling and heartbreaking or very rewarding and could be wonderful opportunity for someone down on their luck to learn humanity, humility and make a living at the same time. These people were employed by a social program created to keep low income elderly and disabled from "long-term and more expensive care". This article references 17 individuals with charges filed against them, (only 6 of whom were convicted), yet it fails to mention if those charged were felons. However, it DOES say "...3800 felons working in the homes of the disabled and the elderly." WORKING is the key word. The fact that they are gainfully employed probably means that they have done their time, paid their debt to society as deemed proper by a jury of their peers, (or the judge that day), and are now getting on with their lives- doing a selfless job that doesn't seem too high in demand. So, get down off of your high horses, use a little common sense, (not to mention have a little empathy), and read between the lines here....... "There but for the grace of God go I".

Keep deleting it. I'll keep posting the truth! The 2nd amendment says: "A well regulatedRead More Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed." Let's take a look at this. "A well regulated MILITIA, being necessary to the security of a free State," [Yes a free state needs a MILITARY to defend it's boarders.] "the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed" [Let's look at that line there. It outlines 2 rights here. To KEEP and BEAR arms To KEEP means to acquire, in most cases buy or to have handed down (by family.) And BEAR means to carry, and deploy as the need arises. That means we have the right to carry our guns openly or concealed, without restriction, and should the need become reality, to deploy said gun to the intended effect of ending the threat to your life and/or property (property being items and persons.) Not this is on a federal level. Your own state may have some extra stipulations regarding carry and deployment. If you think that only the police and military should be armed, and you think that the 2nd amendment was meant to signify that, you would be incorrect. Simply put, if that was the case, it would say "the right of the MILITIA to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed." This is worded this way because the PEOPLE had just gotten out of a 2 year war against a MILITIA! The 2nd amendment says the right of the PEOPLE not the MILITARY If you dont like guns, no one is forcing you to own one, or even to be around them. If you dont want them around you, when you see someone carrying one, leave. No one is forcing you to arm, you have no right to try to force anyone to disarm. You dont want to carry, that's perfectly fine. You dont have to if you dont want. but nowhere does it say that you can demand that I dont.]

Libraries should not be gun-free zones, but Dads at children's parties should use better judgment. Carrying concealed in this instance is a much better choice in my opinion.
