The full text of the law can be found under Title 18, United States Code, Section 922(g)(1).
The statute provides the following:
(g) It shall be unlawful for any person-
(1) who has been convicted in any court of, a crime punishable by imprisonment for a term exceeding one year….
to ship or transport in interstate or foreign commerce, or possess in or affecting [interstate] commerce, any firearm or ammunition; or to receive any firearm or ammunition which has been shipped or transported in interstate or foreign commerce.
In the case of a person who violates section 922 (g) of this title and has three previous convictions by any court referred to in section 922 (g)(1) of this title for a violent felony or a serious drug offense, or both, committed on occasions different from one another, such person shall be fined under this title and imprisoned not less than fifteen years, and, notwithstanding any other provision of law, the court shall not suspend the sentence of, or grant a probationary sentence to, such person with respect to the conviction under section 922 (g). There is no maximum, they can be sentenced to life if they are an armed career criminal.
Then I would imagine that there would be several reasons to hold the person involved. Unless the firearm was obtained while the felon was in a state of diminished capacity I would expect the possession charge to progress normally. The person had to have possession of the firearm to attempt suicide with it.
Difficult to answer - too much is unknown. You can be pretty sure that they will be returned to jail/prison to serve the remainder of their original sentence. In the meantime they will be charged and tried for the firearm possession offense, and that sentence will probably be added onto the top of their original sentence. If the felon was charged under the federal statute they could be imprisoned for up to 15 years on the firearm charge alone.
No, the state of residence has nothing to do with it. It is a violation of FEDERAL law (US Code, Title 18) for a convicted felon to ever own or possess a firearm. Missouri also prohibits felon in possession of a firearm, so a felon in possession may be convicted in both state and federal court for that crime.
