    Did you ignore the factors listed in my previous post?

    Because past actions are not necessarily a reflection of the future.

    Why should being under 18, not convicted of anything else, or what you for afterwards change anything you have still shown you are violent have been convicted. Your self-defense argument also doesn't hold water since if yous till got convicted you clearly didn't convince the judge very well that it was self-defense.

    My answer is no, of course not.

    Everyone has committed a crime. Everyone on this forum has committed a crime. I have absolutely no doubt of that whatsoever. We are all criminals. Its just most of us were never caught in a provable way and prosecuted.

    Everyone is a criminal. Most people have never been caught.

    Say you were convicted of an assault charge years ago you were irresponsible so how can you be trusted with a firearm, and also you have to live the consequences of your actions.

    If it is a felony conviction, yes. If it is a misdemeanor that does not involve domestic violence, no.

    PS After they have served the time for the crime, and met the states requirements for release. They should be allowed to have all the rights previously taken away reinstated. So I voted NO.

    So you are saying a 50 year old is no more responsible than a 21 year old? I mean that is pretty ridicules on any level. As we mature most people (not all) by nature become more responsible on some level.

    Let's say when you were 18 you wrecked a car. Should you never be allowed to drive a car again, since you've clearly shown you cannot drive safely?

    You have to live with the consequences of your actions, you did something irresponsible you have to live with it. Just to prove it I'm going to use something said earlier, what if someone was convicted of child molestation should they be allowed to adopt children "because past actions are not necessarily a reflection of the future"?

    No it's just a different punishment you'll just have higher insurance later in life. You still have to live with the consequences of your actions.
