    If it's a violent crime they committed with a gun, sure. Sounds logical to me.

    Going to go with a soft yes, as even showing repentance for the misdead would be a tough sell. There's just too much risk for giving second chances.

    It's already the case for the most part, since most gun-crimes are felonies and felons are prohibited from owning firearms.
    There is nothing demonstrably true that religion can provide the world that cannot be achieved more rationally through entirely secular means.

    Except for that suddenly enraged individual who catches a spouse cheating.

    I assume that you meant a felony was commited (as an adult), a conviction was obtained for it and a sentence of at least one year in jail/prison was imposed. The way you stated the question leads me to believe that a "trick" may be comming.

    Just depends what the crime is. If someone carries concealed without a permit like a lot of women do, probably not. If they use a gun in a crime that involves a victim, then yes.

    Nope.Once someone serves their sentence they should have all their rights reinstated. If they can't be trusted to have their rights then they should be let out out in the first place.

    Besides that the weapon used should be irrelevant to your punishment.Being killed with a gun does not make you any less or more dead than someone killed with a knife,pencil, or some other tool.
    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    Cicero Marcus Tullius

    I voted yes, but there will be cases in NY or IL where a citizen kills an intruder in their home and is charged which is bull crap
