I see no reason why someone convicted of a hate crime should have access to a weapon such as a gun. They have crossed the line and could use deadly force against someone if they had not already. If we are concerned about guns falling into the wrong hands, these are the very hands to keep them out of. Their motive is hate. Giving them an opportunity with a gun is not something we should do. It is just plain stupid at this point. We have hate crimes, deadly attacks with weapons of all sorts, targeted groups.... Tensions are high. This bill is a good idea.
