ex-Felons and Civil Rights

A continuation of sorts on the right to keep and bear arms. Some believe ex-felons should have their right to vote restored. However, I am curious what these folks think of the restoration of all this person's rights, such as the right to keep and bear arms. A recent case in North Carolina has ruled that some ex-felons do have a right to keep and bear arms. I think if you are going to argue ex-felons have a right to vote, something I am certainly open to, I don't think you can justifiably argue that the same person cannot enjoy all his/her rights. If you're argument is that this person is too dangerous to be trusted to exercise this right, then maybe this person should be serving more time.
