Protection For Felons
(Port Huron MI.)
People who have never broken a law and criminals both carry knives and guns and just about whatever they want. As a felon I cannot carry such items on my person and it is unclear to me what I can and cannot use to defend myself whether in my home or outside of it.
I live in a not so good neighborhood with a lot of criminal activity. Short of locking myself in my home and praying that no-one comes in (sometimes they do), what can I do? I have spoken with a number of individuals who feel the same way. We do not want to break the law to ensure our own safety. I have done my time and turned my life around and I am a ton more stable than people I know who do legally own guns.
