46. SCOTUS already decided this issue in the 70's. The States are not illegally disenfranchising anyone

They have stripped rights as punishment for a crime, through due process. And with equal application of the penalty. All Felons are treated equally under the law

I notice everyone crying about disenfranchisement isn't also looking to have gun rights reinstated. Why is it racist to strip minorities of the right to vote but not racist to also strip them of the enumerated right to own a gun?

Shouldn't we be pushing for the restoration of ALL rights lost as a result of their conviction instead of limiting it to just the one that we need to win elections?

TM exceeded his authority and was rightly reigned in by the courts. I doubt his attempt to work around the decision will fare much better given what the WaPo learned about some of the people whose rights would have been restored are currently residing in prisons, one in a mental hospital and the unknown number awaiting sentencing for felony convictions in and outside the state.
