I would check with ATF (Alcohol Tobacco and Firearms), but I believe they are not allowed to purchaseany firearm. There is also a differance between purchasing and being in position of one. So would ask both questions. Different states may not allow felonsto get permits so you would have to check with the state too. Good question though. Since I permit hunters to hunt my property, I would hope there was a check and balance somewhere to ensure I don't have a felon who was illegal on my property, if it was illegal.

Also wonder what the liability would be permitting a felon to hunt private property. Maybe there should be a way landowners can do a background check before allowing someone to hunt their property. Just another reason why some landowners are no longer allowing hunters on their property.

I use to work with a guy who was a convicted fellon he told me he could not own a black powder nor a bow or anything that shoots a projectile.

Im no fellon either but let me pose this question for general discussion..

Lots of things can make a person a felon, and some of them are really ot violent offenses. Some states speeding over a certain speed is a felony, You know that a guy who rejects the anthrax shot from the military, and gets court martialed, is a fellon? I think there needs to be some distinction on what crimes specifically ban a person from owning a firearm. There are some things that just don't warrent it.

just food for thought.

I work with a guy who just got off of parole. He says he can shoot and own a bow. He never mentioned a muzzle loader. But he's also a serious dumb ass. I would think they could own the bow, muzzle loader, and bb and pellet guns because there is no background check. I wouldreally like to know if they could buy a hunting license.[X(]

Laws vary from state to state on the definition of a firearm. In IL a felon cannot have a muzzleloader.
