These crimes are certainly serious, but a person who commits tax evasion, be it income taxes or otherwise, generally does not pose a risk insofar as armed violence is concerned.
Given that fact, the question becomes whether banning all felons from ever having a gun again is reasonably related to preventing crime – and I’m compelled to answer that question in the negative.
The Gun Control Act of 1968, a US Federal statute, prohibits convicted felons from possessing firearms. I, however, have reached the conclusion that such blanket prohibition on gun ownership by felons is not reasonable.
Most of the people I’ve discussed this with are of the opinion that convicted felons should not be allowed to own guns.
Note: I am in no way condoning the commission of felonies.
Instead, I am saying that before a person is stripped of the right to defend themselves with a firearm, there should be a very good reason; and non-violent crimes don’t seem to be a sufficient reason.
