Will it ever be possible to go rifle hunting again if you have ever been convicted of a felony? Even if the charge was not gun related.
1 Answer from Attorneys
No. Pre-1898 black powder guns are considered antiques, and are exempt from federal law, but anyone convicted of a felony, however, (a 'prohibited person') may never again possess ammunition, a destructive device or a firearm manufactured after 1898. This prohibition, commonly referred to as "felon in possession" is for life, and can be removed only by presidential pardon.
