'Many' is a stretch. Most convicted felons can't vote and can't own firearms. They don't forfeit their freedom of religion, freedom of speech, freedom from unreasonable search and seizure, right to due process, freedom from having to quarter soldiers, etc. or any of their other Constitutional rights.
