Well, there is 50% right there.

Add another percent or two. Now add in the remainder who are not under a court-ordered prohibition yet still have CC convictions that preclude them from passing the background check.

So, 60% would appear not to be BS at all.

Democracy is two wolves and a sheep discussing what's for dinner.

Freedom is the wolves limping away while the sheep reloads.

Never confuse freedom with democracy.
