Every one knows that robbing a bank is illegal and anyone dumb enough to try it should suffer the consequences.
DV is a whole other ball of wax because misdemeanors trigger a prohibition and there is bias in the enforcement (how many females are charged with DV and how many males charged with DV were just defending themselves?).
I strongly disagree.
A person that robs a bank with a note is not the same as someone that uses a gun.
But the real issue I have is that the only reason someone should be deprived the right to keep and bear is if the person is more than likely a danger to themselves or others with a firearm.
