    I don't understand this. Just because the fine is paid does not remove one from being a felon.

    Felons in Florida can vote after release but only if they pay all judgements, fines and fees.

    Isn't that about the only way the fines would be paid for most of them? Isn't that a bribe?

    Sure is, most cant pay back what they owe and never do. It was only very recently, DeSantis managed to block felons from voting by saying first they had to pay back all they owe.

    I don't see how this scheme can be called anything but vote buying. as well as racial discrimination. 32,000 just happens to be roughly the margin DeSantis won over coke freak Gillum two years ago, what a coincidence.

    I hope these felons stiff Bloom and vote for the guy that freed most of them.

    I see. Well, it proves two things, democrats have to buy votes. And in doing so, democrats are as criminal as the criminals they pay off.

    Bloomberg is a felon for buying votes.

    As I have said before...America, death by suicide.

    If the 'felon' has his fine paid, can he still buy a gun under Federal Law?

    I don’t really care what feds do... I care what individual states do. Why did you adopt the name of a confederate bushwacker?

    Concerning the sale of firearms, states can impose stricter laws concerning gun sales. They must abide however at least to the Federal laws.

    So, my question is, can the felon in Florida who had his fine paid, still buy guns. The answer is no. He is still a felon and will not pass a background check. If Florida wants to allow a felon to vote, then that is up to them. Go ahead, let the criminals dictate your politics.

    Because I like him.

    If it puts me in an unfair advantage position then that’s great. There is also something known as a reformed criminal, not everything is black and white. The real criminals are politicians.
