CAUTION: If you were convicted in FEDERAL Court of a FEDERAL FELONY regardless of what your state may do, it will not matter. It is a felony offense for any federally convicted felon to ever own or possess a firearm (including black powder arms). The U.S. Criminal Code, makes the penalty for the illegal possession of a firearm (including black powder weapons) a mandatory minimum of fifteen (15) years in prison, in some cases (Title 18 U.S.C. sec 924(e)(1). At this time FEDERALLY convicted felons have no solution to their firearm disqualification. Congress has continually denied funds this purpose, thereby effectively eliminating the review of federal felons' petitions for restoration of their firearms privileges.
