Personally I don’t see the knife issue as relevant anyway. If the knife is illegal then it’s okay to kill him, or whatever happened. But if the knife is legal then it’s a problem? I know the guy was a lowlife but killing him for a pocket knife is nonsense. Even if his death was accidental in that they didn’t intend to hit him that hard, it’s still wrong.
Malgus you brought this felons should be forgiven stuff up before and it just doesn’t wash. Do you have a personal stake in this issue? I can’t see why else you would want felons to have the right to own guns. With a recidivism rate of 75% it just would be plain stupidity allow legal sales of guns to felons.
