I doubt it. But certainly check with the local authorities or your P.O. if you still have one. Most state a convicted felon cannot own a fire arm. But again this is state specific.

No, a convicted felon cannot participate in any activity involving a gun. Convicted Felons do not have the right to bear arms. Nor can they vote, or run for office.

Most employers will not hire convicted felons. !st, a bow is not a gun. 2nd, a convicted felon CAN vote, once they are off paper, (released from all supervision) Don't know about running for office... seems they would fit right in though. 3rd, there are well paying jobs out there for convicted felons, not all employers are so closed minded that they won't give a guy/gal a chance.

They can't. And won't. Convicted felons are prohibited from owning (or even "obtaining") a firearm in all 50 states. But if civil rights have been restored (usually by the state governor or a clemecy board), then the person can possibly obtain a firearm legally. But he/she would not need the help of the NRA to do so. One more point about the NRA: convicted felons cannot be members of the NRA.

Can convicted felons get a career in computer science?

Many people in computer related industries are in deed convicted felons. They usually work as freelancers. Offering such services as networking, computer repair, virus removal, upgrades, wed design, cabling, and so on. I know this convicted felon who got fired from Home Depot for failing to disclose his conviction after a background check for promotion. He started to cut lawns. His brother who works for Seagate Technology convinced him to start a computer service business. You see when people call someone for service they do so because they know little thats why they need help of someone who does know. So anyone can go into the computer network service business since there is no regulation or certification of any kind required. This includes convicted felons.

An ex-convict and an ex-felon are not the same thing. An ex-felon is someone who was convicted of a felony, but the conviction was later overturned - thus, they are no longer a felon. An ex-convict is someone who was convicted, sentenced, and has completed their sentence - if they were convicted of a felony, then they remain a felon.Both may hunt in North Carolina. However, an ex-con convicted of a felony charge may not do so with a firearm.

Can a convicted felon serve on a board in the state of New York?

convicted felons have essentially the same rights as those who have no conviction record with the exception to voting in some states, and possession of "firearms." The one right that is never discussed to which former felons have no right is protection from discrimination. So, while there is no specific law prohibiting a felon from serving on a board (provided that board is not over a healthcare facility or a school), the organization, business, minicipality, state or federal government can prohibit any felon from serving for no other purpose than that person was previously convicted. While felons have essentially the same rights as other citizens, they do not have the same protections.
