a 19yo hooking up with his hs 16yo is a very serious crime! lock these kids up and throw away the key I tell ya! same goes for sexting! A serious crime? Some felonies are serious, some are not very.
As to a bow being dangerous, felons CAN own bows, they can't own GUNS.
Is lying to an FBI agent a serious crime? ie martha stewart? Tell me how lying to an fbi agent justifies a felony, but when a cop interrogates a suspect they can outright lie to them legally? absolutely no difference but 1 is a felony and 1 is completely legal!
Ignorance is bliss. Everyone thinks felons are rapist murderers when most are not, and if you knew everyone who had a felony it would blow your mind.
It would be nice if the term felon were restricted to just that, serious offenders. But the hs senior who hooks up with a freshmen at a party I somehow find not quite as serious as a murderer. Btw what is a felony in 1 state isn't a felony in another, ie the age of consent int he US varies from 16 to 17 to 18 depending upon the state.
