Can a convicted felon regain their civil right to bear arms and have the right to vote?

In most states and under federal law felons who have completed their sentence can "APPLY" for the privilege to once again own a weapon. Some states require a good reason (IE private investigator or if its allowed for them to hold this position anymore law enforcement or their employer requires it) but as for me after one offense and it was 22 years after my release and no problems since I've been denied in Florida. so you do have the right to apply but. . . . !!!
