Restoration of Gun Rights For Those With Old Felony Convictions

More judicial support for the restoration of gun rights where one’s felony conviction is many years old, did not involve violence or the use of a firearm, and one has lived a law-abiding life since.  Johnston v. North Carolina finds that 2nd Amendment protects gun rights in those cases. It’s time for some amendments to the Gun Control Act of 1968. Just repeal the whole thing, I’d say.
