Are Former Felons Still Citizens? Lil Wayne Faces 10 Years After Feds Raid Plane, Find Gun

Federal agents raided rapper Lil Wayne’s plane at Miami Opa Locka Airport, finding a gold-plated gun and some ammo, according to TMZ. Born Dwayne Carter, the popular performer now faces 10 years in prison because of a 2009 felony conviction, which meant he lost his 2nd Amendment protections forever. We used to say that a court sentence was how a man pays his debt to society. Now, a man can never pay that debt. The land of second chances…no more?
