Kenneth Chalmers started this petition to Representative Steve Cohen and

I would like to petition that people who have felonies be given the opportunity to fully restore their rights to be able to have a license to carry permit. The petition are for those Felons that has completed their 1st Initial prison sentence,parole or probation without having any more charges or convictions after at least 8 years of the initial sentence.I understand why most people would say no to this change but try to understand that it takes change to make change. I too am a felon that has been an outstanding law abiding citizen for the last 9 years,I have not been jailed or incarcerated since 2008 but I am not alone,there are many others like me who are more than deserving of a second chance in society. Study shows that most people who where once incarcerated make a change for better,some don't but after being a law abiding citizen after 5-10 years most of those people never return back to jail or prison those are the people I'm fighting for. Many of us would love to have a career as an officer,fireman,military and etc. I just urge you to think about the one's that are trying to better themselves and remember we all make mistakes but it's about the lesson that your mistakes have taught you.Thank you for your time!
