    Should they be able to own guns?
    I ask because them being able to vote is all the rage now.
    Shouldn't we be consistent in policy? Meaning all rights restored?

    Yes.

    Once they have served their debt to society they should be given full rights back.

    If they cannot be trusted with those rights, then they should not be let out of prison.

    I don't really know, seems something that you need to look at in a case by case bases.

    I don't see how you can universally state that a felon should have his rights fully restored.

    You give the example of guns, I'll give the examples of phedophiles. Should someone convicted of something like that be allowed to own a daycare center for instance. I would argue it's a safety issue to not allow it.

    Same can be said for gun ownership. Someone with a history of violence no. A guy jailed for a non-violent crime... Probably. The thing is voting has no public safety questions. Gun ownership does.

    Restoring rights is good. I'm not for rights being restored for child pedophiles, rapists, or murderers though.

    If I ruled the world, none of the aforementioned would ever be let out of prison.

    To answer TN's question: Yes, all of the rights and liberties of felons should be restored after serving their time.
