NC Supreme Ct holds old nonviolent felony no bar to gun rights
Opinion in pdf here, courtesy of reader Carl in Chicago. It's under discussion at the Volokh Conspiracy and by Instapundit. The latter makes a good point about "felony inflation." E.g., if the felony theft level is pegged to $500 (as I believe it was in Arizona's 1977 criminal code reform) ... in 1977 $500 was a lot of money. I was driving a used VW I bought for $600, and filling it with, as I remember, 40 cent a gallon gasoline, and living in a decent $175/month apartment.
