Best Answer

In the USA, felony parolees are not permitted to carry any weapons of any kind, even for self-defense or hunting. Once they have successfully completed their parole, they might be permitted to have a weapon in their own home, depending on his/her State's laws and with the approval from his/her parole officer, but the felon would be prohibited from carrying the weapon outside their home (n.b., Federal laws prohibit any ex-felony convict from owning a gun, ever).
