Marcus Thomas started this petition to U.S. Senate and

We come today to express the importance of reinstating rights of felons once they are released from their respective states care.  It is imperative that laws be passed that prohibits discrimination against felons based on their past mistakes when it comes to employment opportunity.  How can we reintroduce people back into society and expect them to be productive members of society when we dont offer them the same opportunity as everyone else to be successful.  We understand that sex crimes would still have to be looked at based on the type of work the individuals are applying for.  It is also vital that the gun rights of felons be reinstated so that they can protect their families, homes, and themselves if the time ever comes to do so.  It's unfair to punish a person for the rest of their lives for a past mistake, especially if the individual has displayed change and learned from those mistakes.  We must rehabilitate people and release them back into society with a fresh start and a fair chance to be productive.  The current set up of how we handle the treatment of felons is broken and  makes prison a revolving door.
