I'm surprised someone hasn't filed a suit against that. I agree that is unconstitutional.
Ironically, I can shoot you (a through and through GSW to an extremity is a misdemeanor here) and still be allowed to own a gun. But if I assault a roommate with my fist (living together counts as DV here) I am barred from ever owning a gun. How jacked up is that?
And if you are convicted of a misdemeanor 40 some odd years ago and the sentence was changed to be that of a felony level. How is that not an ex post facto law? Are you not applying today's penalty against something that happened in the past, thus enhancing the charge?
