Letter to the Editor: Violent criminals should not have right to be armed


Senate Bill 943 would prohibit anyone convicted of sexual battery or of assault and battery of a family or household member from possessing or transporting a firearm.

Our Sen. Mark Obenshain voted against this bill. I will now vote against putting him back in office. Anyone who votes to allow violent criminals the right to possess a firearm are themselves criminals as far as I am concerned and should not hold statewide office.
