The Bush Administration does not want convicted felons to to lawfully own firearms. What if the convicted felon's only crime was the civil disobedience of an anti-Constitutional, anti-gun law?
There are thousands of anti-gun laws on the books, many of which have no relevance or influence on criminal behavior. Some of which are considered a felony if violated. The laws vary depending on your geographic location and there are laws at the city, county, state, and federal level, making it confusing for gun owners and law enforcement in some areas.
There really are a lot of felonies that have nothing to do with violent crime, if you mother puts her RX drugs in one of those monday-sunday pill boxes she has commited a felony, under federal law. If caught charged & convicted, she could never own a gun to protect herself
